Santos González negotiates with Karpin Galicia

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Spanish rider Santos González is negotiating with the with the emerging Karpin Galicia team for 2007. He has already had discussions with the Andalucía-Paul Versan and Astana teams.

The Spaniard won Murcia in 2006, but was later stripped of his overall victory because he tested positive for a substance that was not documented on his health record (see First Edition Cycling News for October 6, 2005), yet he was not otherwise sanctioned. González' performances during the first part of the season showed that despite his years in the sport, he has not lost his ability to win races. Unfortunately at an early Spring Classic, González suffered mononucleosis, which put him out of competition for rest of the season.
