Serrano leaves Karpin-Galicia

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Spaniard Marcos Serrano will no longer be a part of the Karpin-Galicia team. The contract linking the veteran rider with the Professional Continental squad for the season 2008 has been mutually terminated. The 35-year-old had signed a two year contract at the end of the 2006 season, but carried around the baggage of the Operación Puerto affair by virtue of being part of the Liberty Seguros/Astana Würth team which was excluded from the 2006 Tour de France.
