Fuerteventura - Canarias gets Spanish starts

Spanish Professional Continental squad Fuerteventura - Canarias has announced its been ask to contest at all three of its home nation's ProTour events. The team has received invitations to contest the April's Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco, May's Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, and August's Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian - San Sebastian.

"From the commercial point of view and, of course, sporting, these three races are fundamental for us," noted director Oscar Guerrero. "For that reason and in spite of being our first season in the professional field, at the beginning of year we put ourselves in contact with the organizers with the hope of which a [start in the events] could do for us, something that does not happen with all the Spanish professional teams."

"In the end the organizers have delivered support to us," added a delighted Guerrero.

The director hopes the squad will soon be invited by organisers of French events, but insisted the races on home soil are of great importance to the outfit.
