I'm guessing IAM, Katusha and Vini will take it.

Colombia Coldeportes & Vini Fantini are a MUST!!
If KATUSHA does not get granted its licence-then Purito will be gone & who's going to be sent to ride? Moreno for Stages?

Interestingly Novo Nordisk is registered as an US team.

There's still Denis Mentsjov on the team, altough he's obviously not on top level anymore. But you never know .....

At least he's still a former Giro winner. Same reason why CCC got an invite 10 years ago with Pavel Tonkov.

Is there a sign where Di Luca could move to (maybe IAM or Bardiani for example?)?

I don't think so. Maybe CCC is an option or another third tier team.

KAT will not likely be invited if they don't get a WT license, since Purito will change teams. But if KAT does get one, Purito will not ride the Giro since he wants to ride the Tour anyway.
