Latasa retires

By Monika Prell

After nine seasons as professional, David Latasa decided to end his cycling career, according to the Spanish newspaper Gara. The 32-year-old turned pro in 1998 with the Banesto Team, for whom he rode for five years. In 2003, he signed with Kelme, and he later rode for Comunidad Valenciana. At the end of the 2006 season, he did not get a serious offer, due to the Operación Puerto and the difficult situation of many Spanish cyclists, so he decided to stop racing. In his palmarès figures one victory, the win of a stage in the Tour del Porvenir in 1999.
