Mexicans probably think Colombia is a good place for a holiday.

Szmyd focusing on the Tour. One more climber to make it harder for everyone
Long time since he has showed much form but was probably the best mountain domestique around.

Vacansoleil and DCM are reconsidering their sponsorship for 2014 and beyond. Meaning that there's a reasonable chance that next year Argos will be the only Dutch WT team.

So what, cycling is dead in the Netherlands now (apart from us hardcore fans). They are reacting like Germans after Ullrich here since USADA-gate.

Soon we can't even go cycling outside on a racebike anymore without getting booed or attacked by your average Dutch man or woman...cyclists are outcasts

Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb will be the leaders of Dutch cycling

But yeah you're right, somehow the cycling crisis is hitting Holland the hardest atm, it seems. I'm not sure why, it's probably the Dutch holier than thou-attitude. I don't see anything on Sporza, for instance.

When people hear crime in Colombia they immediately think drugs because of the sensationalised Hollywood portrayals. They now.also think drugs when they hear.Mexico.so.he was saying that Mexico is more.dangerous than Colombia.

Of course in both Colombia and Mexico the violence is strictly limited to certain areas so its wrong to immediately link anything one hears to.some nationwide problem. Either way getting assaulted for a bicycle is hardly indicative of a war zone. It can happen and does happen anywhere. Happened to me.once in west London as i took myself on a tour de local housing projects. - though fortunately the 15 year old closest to me narrowly missed the punch and all i was left with was a reminder never again to take a left after the post office.
