Personally I would have liked to see him riding already next year in some Continental team or anyway a minor racing schedule.

I believe Henao has the physical talent to become a great professional. I hope a great pro team will give him a chance in 2012.

I think Henao not going too win a GT he is overestimate. It exist alot of better colombian riders. Winning volta colombia isn't a really big thing. Yes it has alot of mountain stages. But the opponents in that race is not that hard. Henao has just turn 23 and by then you must have shown more talant too win a GT.

Sarmiento, Quintana, Beltran, Betancour, Duarte, Uran Uran and Rubiano have all alot bigger chance too be new colombian star rider.

I read on this same forum that a couple of pro-tour teams tried to sign him and he refused. It looks like he did not feel was the right time to make the switch. Go figure. Now that we have a Continental Colombian team he might not even ride with a European team in the near future after all.

Maybe we will have the good all days from the 80's.

Hey Hitch I do hope you are not going to have an ACF style man crush on this poor boy?

Sounds like a rider to watch if we could ever see any of his races...
Perhaps a spot at the Giro would be good. Rujano sure shone there.

Henao will succeed-perhaps not to the level of a TdF GT contender, but certainly a top 5 is reachable- IF he's supported by a Colombian Team- otherwise he'll never get the chance in an environment where European interests are prioritized. Also-as some folk here already stated- the "clinic" factor will play out in his goals-since the colombians aren't that keen to get into those methods (of course excluding Santiago Botero-- which belongs to a different breed)
