Sevilla re-ups with Rock Racing

Spaniard Oscar Sevilla will stay with the Rock Racing team for another two years, the Spanish daily Marca reported Wednesday. Sevilla, 32, was given a lifeline by the California team this year after he plunged into obscurity after being named in the Operación Puerto doping scandal in 2006.

Sevilla is rumoured by Marca to be joined on the team by Francesco "Paco" Mancebo and Jose Enrique Gutierrez, both of whom were also implicated in the same scandal.

In 2008, Sevilla scored two victories, one at the Commerce Bank Reading Classic in June, and a stage of the Vuelta a Colombia.
