this seems pretty serious and was held very quiet for a long time. coldeportes is talking about having a pct team, a ct team and 2 more satellite teams in colombia. also having corti is manager is excellent as he was great director of barloworld and saeco in their strong years and he knows contacts and what it takes to make it in europe.

i definitely look forward to this.
man i'm sorry to say it but i think colombia es pasion came to europe as sacrificial lambs,to beat those europeans you need a strong manager to take care of things and corti is one of those indeed.
can't wait to see them riding in italy.
will gobernacion let acevedo go?

That'll teach me for being too lazy to start a new thread (see 'General news' section). One correction: they will have a pro conti and a conti team and "with the support of these two teams" will set up a cycling school for youngsters.

They did struggle a bit, although part of the problem is that their most talented riders are very young. Also, being pro-conti means they haven't been allowed to ride important Colombian races like Clasico RCN, which I think explains the decision to go with two teams.

thisd totally. they were illrepared and left without money by their sponsors, especially coldeportes and now we know why. but it is better to indeed have european experienced manager.

other good news is that from next year on the vuelta colombia will be broadcasted live in it's entirety after colombian viewers were quite annoyed by the coverage of the past 2 years especially.
