The Banesto team, which numbers the three-time Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain, Pedro Delgado and Jean-Francois Bernard among a 26-rider squad, will be in existence for at least another two years despite the financial problems of the Spanish bank that backs it. Jose Miguel Echavarri, the team chief, has received news that Banesto will continue its involvement, safeguarding the contracts of all the riders.
