Soler to Caisse d'Epargne

So says EFE, who should know. Maybe Soler, the 2007 Tour King of the Mountains and main protagonist in the Alps that year, will get his career back on track in a secondary role. for Cd'E, Soler joins incomers Maurizio Bruseghin and Christophe Moreau, and a host of existing talent, alongside (or in support of) Luis Leon Sanchez and Alejandro Valverde. Should Contador come home, the Maillot Jaune can expect a ton of support in the mountains. As for Soler, at least he knows his team will be invited to the party every time. Barloworld obviously didn't enjoy that luxury. Much has been made of Soler's ineffectiveness (or bad luck) since the '07 Tour, but the guy is only 26, and before he crashed out of the Giro he was climbing alongside the Leipheimers and Bassos. This looks like his big, big chance. Hope he knows what to make of it.
