Luis León Sánchez believes in Tour participation

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Young cycling talent Luis León Sánchez of the Spanish team Würth is quietly preparing his possible second Tour de France participation. His next competition will be the team time trial in Eindhoven on June 18, as he is not riding either the Dauphiné Libéré nor the Tour de Suisse. The 23 year-old still believes in the inclusion of his team in the next edition of Tour, "because I do not understand why not Astana-Würth", although he also confessed that, he felt "a certain disagreement by the news that seem to assure the opposite. I worked very hard for a serious podium contender such as Vinokourov, although I would also like to show myself."

Sánchez also revealed that he other teams - T-Mobile and Discovery Channel - had shown interest in signing him, but that he rejected the offers. "I will finish my agreement at the end of 2008," the Spaniard commented.
