Comunidad Valenciana finishes with a victory

In its last UCI race, the Comunidad Valenciana team finished with a victory in the Clásica a los Puertos, courtesy of Rubén Plaza, who won a four man sprint against Jon Bru (Kaiku), Eladio Jiménez (Comunidad Valenciana) and Pablo Lastras (Caisse d'Epargne).

The team has been in existence under a few sponsors (namely Kelme) for the last 26 years, but was forced to stop after being implicated in the Operacion Puerto affair. One of its former directors, Ignacio Labarta, is under a legal investigation, while several of the riders will likely face disciplinary action by the Spanish cycling federation.
