Spaniard Jose Luis Carrasco Gámiz, a member of the Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears team during the past two seasons, has reached a contractual agreement with Andalucia-Cajasur Pro continental cycling team for 2007. Born in Jaén, Andalucia, the 24-year-old Spanish climber played an important role with the Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears during the last two Giro d'Italias. He looks forward to putting his climbing ability to work for Andalucia Cajasur.

Of his new team, Carrasco said, "[it] has interesting prospects for the next season including the chance to take part in the Vuelta 2007.” He thanked his new team for the support they have given him. At the same time, he shared words of praise for his former team. Caisse d'Epargne Illes Balears “gave me the opportunity to race in the Giro of Italy, one of the great races," said Carrasco.
