Serrano will lead Karpin Galicia

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Marcos Serrano has finally reached a contractual agreement with the Karpin Galicia squad for the next two seasons. After signing his contract, Serrano stressed that he did not feel the necessity "to wash my public and sporting image" from his supposed implication in Operación Puerto, "because I do not have any pending case with justice." While not naming names, Serrano accused some media "to have created a novel." The Spaniard, who has raced in Manolo Saiz's team, reiterated that, "I believe in my innocence."

Serrano thanked the team for its confidence in him. The local cyclist, who gained a stage in the Tour de France in 2005, does not think that at his age of 34 years will prevent him from being a leader. "If I could win a stage in the Tour at 33 years, why not now?," Serrano concluded.
