Indeed. For example, Nordhaug wanted to keep Julich as his coach, but the Rabobank management wouldn't let him. Instead they force him to use one of their "successful" internal coaches...

Marcel Wintels is the head of the Dutch cycling union, he doesn't work for the Rabo team. So these two issues are unrelated.

I believe Nordhaug's trainer is Mathieu Heijboer? He has mostly trained the espoirs so far, and he didn't do that bad. That's why they moved him to the pros in the first place, I reckon.

Oh ok, I thought you were talking about Rabo for some reason

Yes, that's right. I don't know much about him. But the espoirs have been rather successful of course, so he might be decent.

i agree

just read this:"Riis confessed in 2007 to having doped when he was a rider. He has since been named as providing doping advice, if not more, in various books and doping confessions from recent riders. The Saxo-Tinkoff team owner has consistently refused to comment on such matters."
WTF?

the Frank Schleck case is the another proof, he will race in 2013, i am sure

Plagued by back problems, quit cycling after 3 years as a pro.

Jose Luis López Cerrón has been elected president of the RFEC (Spanish Cycling Federation)

López Cerrón was a pro in the early 80's, sports director in Banesto in the 90's and is currently the organizer of Vuelta a Castilla y León. In his spare time he visits his friends at pro races and brings them steaks. The song remains the same at RFEC.

Program of Betancur for 2013:

Tour de San Luis
Milan San Remo
Amstel Gold
Flèche Wallonne
Liège-Bastogne-Liège
Giro d'Italia

I suspect there must be a few races missing though between San Luis and MSR
