The penultimate stage is underway, but first of all more drama from yesterday.http://ve.ciclismototal.net/noticias/item/3663-fabian-uquillas-saboteo-la-carrera
The president of the Sports Institute of Táchira and Sport Táchira, responsible bodies of four teams (including the leader's team - Kino Tachira) in competition of the Vuelta al Táchira, again enters the controversy, this time for obstructing the action of the cyclist Roniel Campos in the eighth stage (his white-colored vehicle hindered the mechanical assistance to the rider Roniel Campos so that he could not change the wheel of his bicycle) and also having four Runners expelled from the competition for being "towed" on the ascent to Casa del Padre
The four expelled riders were Pedro Gutiérrez, Jesús Pérez, Juan Ruiz y Carlos Molina (three from Kino), but what difference will it make when you have four teams riding for you?
Also hit with 20 second time penalties were Yonathan Monsalve, Jhorman Flores, Jimmy Briceño, Luis Díaz, Jackson Rodríguez and Roniel Campos. Reasons unknown - possibly just for being rivals of Salinas.
