This team-issue jersey by Etxeondo was only in the peloton a few months due to Operacion Puerto - what a shame.
Associated Bike Brand: BH Bikes
On 25th May 2006, Liberty Mutual (Seguros means insurance) pulled out of primary sponsorship due to the infamous doping scandal "Operacion Puerto" involving Eufemiano Fuentes who provided some team members with systematic doping programmes.
Etxeondo subsequently provided a number of different kit designs to the team due to various sponsors pulling out. It`s a real shame for Etxeondo as I think they provided the team with some of the best clothing in the world. They also supplied Euskaltel at the time too.
Hopefully by sponsoring the reformed "Blanco" team, they will have some better luck!
