Koldo Gil and Alberto Fernández head west

By Monika Prell

Koldo Gil will change teams for the 2008 season. According to El Correo he signed a contract with the Portuguese Continental team Liberty Seguros, and will leave current team Saunier Duval-Prodir. Gil, who has been allegedly implicated in Operación Puerto, signed a one-year contract.

The rider from Pamplona had a great first half of this year's season – he won the Subida al Naranco and the Vuelta a Asturias. However, due to Puerto suspicions and problems with his knee, he was not able to participate in many races of the second half of the year.

Amateur Alberto Fernández, who has competed this year in the ranks of Supermercado Froiz, signed a contract with the Professional Continental Team Karpin-Galicia. The 26 years-old Spaniard will make his professional debut on the Galician team along with previous signings Jesús Cobelo, Delio Fernández and Alejandro Paleo.
