Guerrero to direct Fuerteventura-Canarias

By Antonio J. Salmerón

The Spaniard Oscar Guerrero, who has successfully directed the Kaiku pro continental team for the past two years, has signed a contract with the Fuerteventura-Canarias to become director sportif of the pro-continental Spanish team. The squad will make its debut in February of 2007. Fuerteventura-Canarias has placed their hopes on Guerrero's unique combination of experience and youth, and by the fighting spirit which he imbued into his Kaiku riders.

Guerrero will count on David Bernabeu as the leader, but the group of 14 riders is not yet completed. According to El Faro de Murcia, José Luís Martínez (Comunidad Valenciana), who has been directed by Vicente Belda, the Fuerteventura-Canarias technical adviser, could be close to signing with this Spanish squad. At the moment, there are eight riders signed by Fuerteventura-Canarias for 2007, but there are many other unsigned riders who the team might be interested in, such as Eladio Jiménez or Rubén Plaza (Comunidad Valenciana).
