Sure, there is some violence, but that's mainly limited to drugs militia and certain remote areas.
Colombia is one of the most dangerous countries to live in.

He better improves last year's performance. It cost Basso a Giro podium and Nibali a TdF victory.

Other than shooting Scarponi, De Gendt, Hesjedal, Rodriguez, Froome and Wiggins I don't see what Szmyd could have done to help Nibali and Basso.

lol, yeah Wiggins and Froome were untouchable in the Tour. Basso's own performance in the Giro was borderline embarrassing, if he had a train like Sky the captain himself would have been dropped on the climbs. Prepare for a response in this years Giro.

What are you on about What the actual hell ...

Anyway, Durbridge had a bad fall today. Wonder how much that effects him for the TT.
