After two seasons racing in Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears, Cayetano Juliá is now looking for a new team for 2007. "It is a difficult task because the cycling market is saturated [due to] the disappearance of so many teams from Spain," the Spaniard rider told Cyclingnews. Juliá joined Caisse d'Epargne Illes Balears from Comunitat Valenciana-Kelme at the same time as Alejandro Valverde.

The sporting yield of Juliá was never to the liking of Eusebio Unzué, Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears' director. Juliá believes his future could be in the fledgling Portuguese market. "Why not? Many Spanish riders are finding new opportunities there, so I am optimistic with my continuity."

Juliá's only two wins came in Portugal and the 2003 Vuelta, and Juliá is hopeful this could open doors to him.
