BBC Sport: Heras to leave USPS?

BBC SPORT | Heras 'set for US Postal exit'

Tour of Spain winner Roberto Heras wants to leave US Postal and head a new team in next year's Tour de France, according to reports.

Heras is said to have been sounded out by the manager of the new Spanish-based Liberty Seguros outfit, Manolo Saiz.

US Postal director Johan Bruyneel told Spanish sports daily Marca that Heras had begun moves to negotiate his exit from the American team.

The 29-year-old Spaniard has a year left on his current contract.

Heras's exit would make Armstrong's run at a 6th Tour much more difficult...
