Isidro Nozal signs for Karpin-Galicia

Isidro Nozal will race in 2007 for Spanish professional continental squad Karpin-Galicia. Friday, the 29 year-old Spaniard, second in the 2003 Vuelta a España, signed a one-year contract according to AGR.

Nozal, formerly with Manolo Saiz's Astana team, had been sidelined since last June when he was named in the Operación Puerto investigations. In October the Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC) dropped the disciplinary files opened against Spanish cyclists listed in the inquiry and Nozal, who had also received a letter from the Spanish judged in late summer, was able to return to racing.
