Pereiro to Illes Balears

Although several other "contractually freed" Phonak riders, including Floyd Landis, Victor Peña and Santiago Botero, have renewed their contracts with the Swiss team recently, Spaniard Oscar Pereiro will be changing squads next year. The Illes Balears-Caisse d'Epargne team has announced that it has signed Pereiro for the next two seasons, as it continues to strengthen its roster. Pereiro, a winner of a Tour stage this year, joins Francisco Pérez, Joaquín Rodríguez (Saunier Duval), Tino Zaballa (Saunier Duval), Florent Brard (Agritubel), Nicolas Portal (FDJ) and Mathieu Perget (Neo-pro).
