They "hired" Marco Corti instead.

With this quality staff of 15 riders doing a GT? Ridiculous. And where's Duarte? Atapuma?

They have 18 riders, which is very common in the Pro Continetal teams.
I canīt see anything ridiculous about that.

The point is that this team does not have nine riders for a GT.

In the best case they have:

Atapuma
Chalapud
Chaves
Duarte
Duque
Pantano
Romero
Suarez
Valencia

While these are some nice names I barely can see only half of them finish a GT.

c'mon, for one gt is ok. they just have to deliver action in the hilly/mountain stages. they don't have gc ambitions or anything like that. i've seen thousands of teams weaker than coldeportes in il giro.remember the french ones?yep me neither

i just wish they will arrive in good form. i've heard that they will begin the season training in hottish trentino?what kind of idea is that?
seems like they didn't learn a thing from last year....ever heard of tenerife or i don't know...colombia?

BMC probably had a worse team in the Giro 2010 with the exception of Evans

They should be fine for the Giro, I don't foresee them having too much trouble being competitive in it. And with Atapuma, Duarte, and Chaves they have a much better team then many other teams that have gotten GT wildcards. And if they get a wildcard to the Vuelta they can send the Giro team there as well. The Tour is the only race I could see them having a slight disadvantage in, since it is after the Giro.

They can't do as bad as Bonjour back in the '01 Giro when stagiere Voeckler was their only finisher.

they will train in trentino from next week, exactly in arco, on the coast of garda lake..
it seems that they are doing the same mistake of last year

i do not understand why they don't keep on altitude training in colombia, where the weather is warm and they go in chilly northern ital.

probably corti want to keep the riders under is direct control and he does not want to stay in colombia...

very sad for osorio, he had a great potential.

They have to get their experience at some point somewhere and this is it. I think you may be discounting their resolve though.
