Galdeano on earpieces and breakaway league

Igor González de Galdeano discussed two contentious issues with El Correo yesterday: the use (or rather non-use) of earpieces, and the rumours of a separate professional league being set up. Galdeano was rather straightforward on the former, saying: "I advocate the use of earpieces. The management of a company pays it's employees and therefore has the right to lead them. In the Vuelta a Murcia, Mikel Landa crashed into a tree as we couldn't warn him over the radio that there had been a crash in front of him". On the latter topic, the team head remained coy however. "It's obvious that we must respect the decisions of the UCI", he said, perhaps saying that Euskaltel are not among the 11 teams planning to break away from the UCI. "We're in the teams' association as well and can voice our opinion there."
