very interesting rumours:
seems like katusha and colombia coldeportes will get invited
and farnese and bardiani were asked by rcs to form a single team for il giro...does that sound plausible?

It's happened before but dunno if it's allowable now.

****ing great news, if true. Di Luca will probably be on that single Italian wildcard team... gotta be. Ever since he was at that Miami Gran Fondo, cheesing next to Acquarone I've had high hopes. Did RCS finally come to their got damn senses? It appears so.

Chaves and Atapuma will be great additions, as well.

I'll be the first one to ask this question then, who gives a crap about Di Luca and his mediocrity?

We might actually get a decent rider in the Giro instead of Di Luca.

Who do you mean, Stybar? Did you really tell people he could score upwards of 900 CQ points this year?

I see I've hurt the first fanboy already.

I mean just about any cyclist who doesn't need ten pounds of kidney as breakfast in the morning to finish a race.
