Just been checking transfers for 2013 little bit, and really surprised why Movistar didnīt renew Sergio Pardilla, whoīll join MTN... He got WT rider 2011, aged 27, and look at his results in his 2 years at Movistar... Not too bad!
Pardilla had to go, and they sign Eloy Teruel... Useful maybe in Spetember, in the TTT worlds, but strange transfer, nonetheless. Maybe to show the "Movistar" letters on at least one skinsuit in the Track World Cups.
What else is to say? Quite a lot, too much for one quick post. Too bad Rafaa Chtioiu didnīt have his breakthrough with Europcar...
Vogondy leaves Cofidis, maybe even end of career?
Valentin Iglinsky to Ag2R is strange, I think Vino made this happen, heīs still a good friend of his former chief Lavenu.
Devolder to RadioShack, OK, I think this was being put up by Bruyneel, who might now be out of the team.
Cameron Wurf leaves Liquigas/Cannondale, joins, leaves, and so on...
Pauriol to Saur... So if he joins Bretagne one day, heīll have been at really every French WT and PCT team.
Menchov gets Kozonchuk back, maybe that helps to do better in the Tour, probably not.
Rujano to Vacansoleil - he will feel left alone there, luckily he does anything on his own mind, anyways.
Jimmy Casper leaves Ag2R, hope this doesnīt mean end of career.
Androni will have a very nice line-up, Giro wildcard guaranteed anyways.
Morajko lucky to be able to return to CCC, regarding his 2012 season.
Di Gregorio out of Cofidis, and still no trial on him in France...
Pozzato three years to Lampre is great, I just think top riders should be on top teams.
Leipheimer clearly has a problem, donīt see a real chance for him to stay WorldTour.
Gerdemann still without a contract, I think maybe IAM or NetApp will be an option.
