Absolutely no news about Garzelli since ages; I fear he's retiring.

It's a bit sad really, Liquigas used to be the team that was really great at rallying around their GT leader. Relatively average riders outdoing themselves.

Yea. Next year is a big contrast to '10, where they had Basso (still being good), Nibali, Kreuziger and Pellizotti.

Gerdemann possibly joining German Continental team Stölting, according to a German forum.

But that's just a wild guess. Stölting is planning to sign a WT rider, and Gerdemann comes to mind as fitting the criteria. That's all. I heavily doubt that he ends up at this notoriously underfinanced squad.

good to see that boavista will stick around. daniel silva could get them a good result at the volta for sure. other then that i don't know. . . domingos gonçalves doesn't appear to be as talented as his brother and virgilio gonçalves is pretty old so the team will prolly end up being the weakest pro team on the national scene next year i guess.

There's still a couple of roster spots available though (only 5 pros listed), and João Cabreira has been there and isn't confirmed anywhere else yet.

Still, I'd expect them to be weakest.

I think I read somewhere that Cabreira will ride for Valongo team. I may be wrong though.
