High Road confirms Vuelta non-participation

Team High Road manager Bob Stapleton has confirmed that his team will not ride the Vuelta a España, following rumours that the US-registered team would not be invited to participate. "We had hoped to support the Vuelta and we continue to have a strong interest in the Spanish market," said Stapleton.

"However, in the absence of a commitment from the Vuelta race organiser, Team High Road has respectfully chosen to withdraw its application and we will instead support the Tour of Britain, the Tour of Ireland and the Tour of Missouri – each of which meets the marketing objectives of High Road."
