Mauri to lead Andorra-Grandvalira

By Antonio J. Salmerón

The Government of Andorra and Grandvalira, a local company that operates one of the largest ski stations of Europe in the Pyrenees, are the main sponsors of a new continental team who will be lead by the former professional cyclist Melchor Mauri and Domènec Carbonell, called Andorra Grandvalira.

A team of 16 riders will be built soon, and will include the neo-professional Egoitz Garcia (Seguros Bilbao) and Francisco Javier Carrasco (SPIUK). The team will be led by Carles Torrent and Jaume Rovira (both Extremadura), Angel Vallejo (Loulé) and Raul Garcia de Mateos (Super Froiz); the latter two are returning to the professional peloton after being part of the defunct Relax GAM squad.

Among the beginners will include Dmitri Chuzdha (Cosaor), Eduard Prades (Aluminis Sant Jordi) Vicente Garcia de Mateos (Aluminis Sant Jordi), Aitor Aznar (Aluminis Sant Jordi) and Arnau Mendez (Aluminis Sant Jordi).
