Valverde not sure about Vuelta

Alejandro Valverde told the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo that he is not sure if he will participate at the Vuelta a España 2007. It will depend on his performance at the Tour de France and he will decide after the Tour whether he will ride the Vuelta. "This year I had not thought in riding the Vuelta, and after my abandon of the Tour, caused by my fall, everything had to be re-organized, so it is still very early to say if I'll be at the start of the Vuelta", confirmed the cyclist.

Valverde said that he feels content about his results this year, because "I was the first in the UCI- ProTour and, in addition I won really prestigious competitions." He wishes 2007 to "be a good season and that cycling will not be polluted by scandals like the Operación Puerto".
