henao will be leader at the vuelta, confirmed by sky. I hope this will leave some problems this year as I think uran really doesn't want to work for others, see also vuelta last year. so next year both can leave to coldeportes

I thought Uran didn't really care about Coldeportes

Doubt it. Sky will not want to let him go.

That's why they given him Vuelta lead partially. They will offer him contract he will not refuse I am pretty sure of that.

At the end of the year, Uran is more likely to leave than Henao. STill think Henao will not move though.

henao doesn't care about money so much, he cares about the role he gets and colombia, that's why he gave chaves that win in burgos. in sky he knows he will ride with froome and wiggins and henao's goal is to win the tour ultimately, so he needs to leave.

Sky wouldn't sign him pointlessly to leave after 2 years though... just doesn't make any sense to put money and effort for him to leave after 2 years of the project.

I know few talented riders left Sky. But not any of them really proved their expectations. Henao does. And they will net let him leave lightly I believe.

Wiggins should retire in 1/2 years or will be past his best. Froome will not always target Tour imo. Henao will have a shot at Tour next year imo.

However he might leave as you say, Sky will try to obviously keep him a lot.

Henao should stay where he is for as long as he can.
He might get leading role elsewhere, but I don't think he'll advance.
Lots of examples of regression after leaving big, organized, team.

Who's better for GTs, Henao or Uran ? Close call it seems ! Not sure either of them will ever win one though...

henao imo is better then uran.

i know he was already 24 but the giro was still his first GT and he was already pretty much equal to uran who was on his (5?) GT.

Uran was already great in 2007. We don't really know whether Henao will grow a lot or stay at more or less at the same level for the next few years.

Just look at Uran...
