that doesn't mean anything. sojasun aslo isn't invited to dauphinee. it's more likely that sojasun adn colombia will get invited but therefore won't get dauphinee wildcard.

they have more than 9 riders of course and those coming out of the giro would be in excellent shape

I don't think they have the depth for it. Maybe I'm wrong though but I have troubles looking past Atapuma, Duarte and Chaves as riders that can have some sucess at the moment at the highest level.

they have more better riders, but they should step up this year. atapuma definitely isn't in their top 5 biggest talents imo. he only rode so well because he stayed in colombia longer to train. still they should be getting riders throughout the season that can add a lot. for instance their ct team is almost better than pct team but there's a lot of political games as always in colombian cycling teams...

Seems that next week's Tour of Qatar will not be covered by Eurosport, live or otherwise.
Some contractual cock up.
Al Jazeera anyone?

too bad, but perhaps ASO thought the whole thing was a charity scheme.
