Unzúe thankful for Valverde support

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Caisse d'Epargne's Eusebio Unzue felt "immense joy" when hearing of CAS' ruling to allow the ProTour squad's rider Alejandro Valverde to contest this weeks World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. "It is the right decision, after the nonsense things of the last few days" Unzue told EFE. The Spaniard pointed to the bad relationship between the UCI and the RFEC, which described as an "incomprehensible situation". "I prefer not to add more to this valuation," said Unzue. "At the moment, any differences between our cycling team and the UCI have not taken place." The Caisse d'Epargne director stressed he was surprised when the UCI, which he described as a excellent organisation, moved to prevent his rider from participating in the World Championships. Unzue was thankful for all the support given to Valverde, "[by] the Spanish federation and also to all people who has been around him during these so complex moments".
