why signing Di Luca, after what we know about him, and after the last Cipo problems here in Italy?

what problems,what do you know about him that makes him so special in pro peloton? he's a fuoriclasse winning races since he was in diapers,killing guys in juniors, u23 and pro. a pro rider must be professional enough if he wants to win the big races league. and he should have done that way before 2005, he wasted lot of time until he became Killer.

and unlike much of his peers, unfortunately he also served a sentence when he still was at the peak of his power. many dozens got away,i don't complain though.
he returned and still won races not in dominant fashion but age is a factor

i really,really think he can do something at firenze for italia. in il giro, i don't know maybe stage wins but the worlds i still think are in his reach.


luca scinto was sincere and said he doesn't want to take di luca because it's all about the youngsters even if he respects him as a rider. but he said he will accept him if the abruzzese sponsors decide to take him. and i hope that will happen.

one more year of killer awesomeness please. grinta abruzzese FTW!

If Gerdemann doesn´t find a team the next 8 days, he´ll sign Stölting, according to which the team announced (though they didn´t name the name Gerdemann). Deadline March 1st.

Scarponi will race on Lampre for the rest of the year, but not any further.

I don't know if it's mentioned in the article but deal with Lampre is that he will resign if further damaging details will emerge during the year.
