by the way, Katusha has been screwed badly, both from Uci and now not getting a Giro spot.
it reminds me of Unibet's bad luck

farnese said that his financial demands were too big. anyway there is a very high possibility he will sign with farnese or bardiani. he can't afford to miss il giro this year.
