which is as bad as it can gets. I had once been infected with mono but didn't notice it. until I prepared for a match a few months later and went so deep in my training that I became so sick I could only lay in bed and could barely eat. it scared me and I decided to wait many months to get it out of my system for good(imagine this for a endurance sport like cycling!). same happened to rujano and if the doctor doesn't understand it he's even more of an idiot.

Excuse me, but I am sorry to have to say this Ryo, but I think you are full of **** saying that Gianni Savio "treating riders from southamerica as ****".
To my knowledge the most of the southamerican (beside Rujano) like Gianni a lot. I know that all of the guys are greatful to get the chance to prove / show / race in Europe. Gianni Savio is (and have since ages ago) always looked for talens in South America to let them get the chance in major European races. How many other Team Managers does that???

With José Rujano itīs a pretty different question, if you have read all the interviews with Gianni and other you should know that Rujano was the captain of this years Giro, he got the question everyday how he felt and Gianni attached 1-2 riders every day to protect him and help him. And as Gianni said in several interviews if Rujano just have fullfilled the Giro, to honour the race, they wouldnīt had been a problem, the problem is that Rujano choose to leave the race before the last stage.
You should also know that it was Gianni Savio who "found" Rujano in the beginning, you know what happened after that. When José rejoined the Team in 2010 (for the season 2011). Gianni said in several interviews that "this is the last chance for Rujano, any problems and he is out of the Team".

I should recommend you to read little more about Gianni Savio/Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela before you say and makes such statements.

Fritz

he is not well liked at all in south america. in fact he is disliked in colombia a lot for having swerved the national federation and many riders by lieing to them or screwing them. he would accept their money and never get them to europe or not give them any races or put them in an apartment in italy alone with nothing to do and no races to give. I suggest you talk to guys like fabio duarte and alexis castro what they think about savio, or so many other colombians over the years. the national federation cut all ties to him many years ago and savio via, via being the con-man that he is, got to national fed of venezuela, which is his last string he has in south america. he's a born bull****er and a liar. every year we have to hear how savio supposedly found rujano in a coffee plantation and how he nurtured him to a cyclist, while rujano was whipping everybodies *** in south america for years before savio ever noticed him(same with duarte). I suggest you do more research here as I know very well what I'm talking about, knowing stories first hand.

many things you wrote here are truth-but then Rujano himself didn't help the situation either- He had a good chance to shine at Caisse & he blew it. then what he did afterwards? went back to Savio? The ups & downs of his career are as similar as Andy Schleck's approach to cycling- with only few wins you cannot live up to high expectations, even if the talent is there. I do wish Rujano the best & hope he gets his last years straighten out at VC, because this is it-either he makes it-or he's done for good....

despite rujano underperforming at caisse. he still had some good results and caisse wanted to renew him but rujano wanted to go back to venezuela and since then unzue has tried a few times to get him back actually with movistar. it isn't as black and white as is often portraid. rujano 100% screwed up in his earlier years after savio when he and his manager filled their pockets and rujano has admitted this as well. rujano is now a millionaire and he changed his mentality when he went back to south america again in 2009 and he won the vuelta colombia in the strongest showing I've seen of any human being since pantani. since then he doesn't ride for money clearly and nor does he the coming year at vacansoleil.

I hope you're right. He's an intriguing and exciting rider when everything falls into place. A huge talent but one that fits the stereotype of the fragile pure climber. Hard to say when you'll get him performing at his best. I guess all we can do is enjoy him when he's focused and riding well but not set our expectations too high.

don;'t get me wrong. I'm one the last persons who expects anything from him in this giro. but not because of motivation. but because of his fragile body in the italian rain and cold.

I do know stories from first hand, as you should also know is that in some of the riders you are mentioning was very young when they got the chance with Androni (and the names the team had then). I think itīs very good of Gianni to find riders in Southamerica and letting them have the opportunity to "grow" among other well experienced riders. But soem of them didnīt get a new contract, and you should know that in ALL CASES the Team and the sponsors comes first, itīs always the best rider of the day who get the chance to race.
But still you doesnīt comment the fact that itīs Gianni Savio who has for several years looking and find strong riders in Southamerice, and the "excuse" you use that Rujano was "whipping everybodies asses for years" before Gianni contacted him do I think is a lame excuse, you should also look at the facts what happened with José after he left Androni in the first place, how many team did he join, and what happened after that all Team got tired of him? Who got him back to the races in Europe?

I agree that José Rujano is a great rider ( I have meet him a couple of times) but itīs not the races, teams, manager who is his greates enemy itīs himself.

And if Gianni Savio and Androni is so "unliked" as you say, why does the Team had two riders from Colombia this year - Serpa and Rubiano, and one next year - Rubiano and donīt forget the riders from Venezuela!

One more thing who anoys me when I read you statements, is that when you write s**t about Gianni, you makes it sound that Gianni should be the South American CONTINENTs soloution when it comes to bicycling, Southamerica is a BIG continent, and to my knowledge the countries there is pretty big and Gianni Savio is resident i Italy, he canīt be all the time in Venezuela or other southamerican countries, he has to be where the riders are Italy, Malaysia, Taiwan, Colombia, Venezuela, Spain and France.

So my suggestion, think again before you write such bad things about a person you doesnīknow. I am happy and honoured to say that I atleast know Gianni Savio a little bit and the things you say about him is totally incorrect.

Regards,
Fritz

basically you use lots of words and say nothing.

" and the "excuse" you use that Rujano was "whipping everybodies asses for years" before Gianni contacted him do I think is a lame excuse, you should also look at the facts what happened with José after he left Androni in the first place, how many team did he join, and what happened after that all Team got tired of him? Who got him back to the races in Europe? "


this doesn't make any sense, did you even read what I said?

and who got him back to europe? how about isd, who got him back in 2010, and movistar who were first to offer him contract after isd in 2010. rujano wisely (then) choose a good team (his buddies jackson and ochoa) over money of movistar, who were offering him more.

if rujano next year is kicking everybody's *** in the giro and or vuelta. savio looks like a total idiot, like he did with duarte.


and about the colombians thing. he only got serpa because he rode in venezuela for years before savio got him and rubiano had been racing in italy for almost 10 years before savio got him. nobody in colombia takes him serious anymore and he hasn't been able to sign any colombian since duarte in 2007 because of it. and that while the colombian rider market and hype is storming and many teams are getting them.

Good post Fritz! Ryo might know few things here and there but he's been wrong countless times.

Not really (see bolded above), it'd mean Rujanito has matured.
