Valverde likely to miss Vuelta
Spain's budding superstar, Alejandro Valverde, expected to be a favorite at next month's Vuelta a España, may have to miss his national tour.
Valverde is still recovering from tendinitis that forced him out of the 2005 Tour during Stage 13.
Valverde and his team are reportedly refocusing their late-season goals on the world championships in Madrid, despite the race profile, which is expected to favor full-on sprinters.
Valverde has finished 3rd and 4th in two Vueltas.
