Pérez back with Relax GAM

Spanish rider Santi Perez is back to competition after a two year-ban for blood transfusion. Pérez finished second in the Vuelta 2004, racing for the Phonak team. The Relax GAM Pro continental squad was interested in counting on the 29 year-old, and Pérez has signed with the Spanish squad for next season. Jesus Suárez Cueva, Relax GAM director and manager, has also renewed with Mario de Sárraga for 2007.

Losada signed by Caisse d'Epargne

Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears has reached an agreement with Alberto Losada for the two next seasons. Losada (24 years-old) has made his debut at the beginning of 2006 with the Kaiku Pro continental team, which is still looking for sponsorships for continuing in 2007. "Losada has been able to adapt very well to the category and to obtain good results in his first year," the ProTour team commented on the subject. Losada finished second in the Escalada a Montjuïc (Barcelona, Spain).
