If this is it for KAT, I surely hope he moves to another team, even if it means he'd ride the Tour.

J-Rod and Moreno should join Argos and give them a bit of GC capability.

holczer is a complete idiot, stupid enough to have misjudged all of his riders doping in the past and trust, me he really didn't know about it. that's how much of an idiot he is. I will never forget him on ard with sinkewitz. how anyone like him could have any managerial function is beyond me. I don't think it's ethical or they would not have advised to go pct to them.

He needs help if he goes there.

Maybe OPQS?

Rodriguez fits perfectly at Movistar, where valverde can work for him instead of the other way around

Interesting news. Would like to see him at Euskaltel now that they have relaxed their all basque policy, but I don't think they have the funds to sign him.

Lampre have been looking for a GC candidate ever since Cunego the GC candidate effectively retired, so he might be a fit there.

The timing of this is not great for Purito because many rosters are just about full by now. Maybe he takes a 1 year contract somewhere for now and then explores the market in full next year.

No way man,there is Piti and Quintana.

I would say Euskaltel,but there is a lack of money,so my bet is BMC

Or maybe he won't leave at all ?

Katusha pays him great amount and they'll be invited to most races.

If he can get Moreno with him, it should be enough. J-Rod is not the type of rider who "defines" races. Needs to go with the favorites and strike in the end of key stages.

Canondale could be a good fit. Basso is there only real GT leader and he is in final stages of his career. They don't have an obvious leader for the TDF next year, so Purito could be a good fit for them?
