Fuerteventura wants to go to Vuelta

Spanish team Fuerteventura-Canarias has reacted strongly to the decision by Vuelta a España organiser Unipublic to not invite them to the race. The team called "completely false" the statement by the Vuelta's general director, Víctor Cordero, who declared that the team hadn't subjected themselves to the same controls as the rest of the pre-inscribed teams.

A meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 16, but Fuerteventura has already released a statement, clarifying that "we want Unipublic to declare today which controls have taken place at the other pre-inscribed teams."
