Comunidad Valenciana likely to lose Tour spot

procycling.com | Comunidad Valenciana for Tour chop

Procycling quotes this article at AS which suggests Tour organizers will kick 2006 Tour wildcard Comunidad Valenciana out of the race by Friday. Their director, Ignacio Laberta, is reportedly implicated in the ongoing investigation of blood doping in Spain.

ASO, which runs the Tour, has the authority to remove CV because they're a wildcard, but would need cooperation from the UCI to remove the Würth (formerly Liberty Seguros-Würth) squad, because they're entered under the auspices of the Pro Tour.
