I'm going to be half way around the world for a wedding in Italy next year which I will follow up with some riding, looking to do some of the big Giro climbs (Stelvio etc) so thought if the GiroBio is in the area at the same time and doing similar climbs to last year I might as well ride up beforehand and watch the future stars go by.

Cheers
I don't remember exactly, probably they'll be published around April. When it happens, anyway, you'll find the details here

Rodriguez has assured he'll stay with KAT. Acquarone was at at KAT's team presentation. Will RCS Sport invite KAT to the Giro? IMO If Giro big boss was there, then KAT will get invited.

Purito's interview at the presentation.

But first things first, they need to get a pro conti license.

Acquarone said that until the situation of KAT isn't clear, the decision of the wildcards will be postponed.

I know, I'm talking about 'body language'.

I know I was just adding that news. I, too, believe KAT has it in the bag.

Purito to focus on the TDF as expected. Will leave Katusha if WT issue doesn't get resolved...

He's always wanted to go to next year's Tour. But, few days ago he said he will not change teams.

"Nada ha cambiado para mí, yo no voy a cambiar de equipo porque aquí estoy bien. Con el Katusha llegué a la cima del mundo y parece extraño que este equipo no esté incluido en la élite del ciclismo."
