I know it's strange to have a nice Colombian attacker with a Sky jersey.

Sky minus Wiggins is a pretty spectacular team. The bad aura comes from 2012 TDF style that was required to make Wiggins a TDF champ.

on this pages anything has a bad aura when it comes to Sky.
that's why seeing a Colombian guy riding for them is nice. imagine how much more praise he would get if he rode for Ag2r or Cofidis

Maybe that makes some sense to you but as an answer to the question I asked it doesn't serve much or a purpose. Broken down what you have said is
A)you liked Henao
B)he rides for sky
C) that's funny.

Wtf is that supposed to mean. The 3 points together don't paint much of a picture and they certainly don't answer my question.

You suggesting I don't like Henao anymore or don't consider him promising anymore? And where did you get that idea from. Certainly not from my posts.

Sky fan or not, you got to love Henao. He rides on pure intuition instead of boring calculated effort.

Basically you mean he is the most unlike Wiggins


He has flair and style and looks at odds with all the other robots in Sky. Wiggins, Thomas, Porte, Froome etc all have a horrid by the numbers style even Roach now looks like he's had a Sky chip inserted in his brain.
Henao more of a Bertie, Quintana, Purito type...he should leave before they chip him :D

Don't worry they stopped with the Wiggins chip in 2012, he should be safe.

People who attack Sky but praise a wheelsucker like Matthews for "hanging on" are indeed hypocritical.

With Nieve riding Il Giro for Porte, I'm pretty sure that Sergio will ride TdF.I hope he will impress.

Thought I'd read something about it a while ago but didn't know if I was imagining things, Pretty sure he mentioned it in an interview last year didn't he?

Thought when I seen that big front group Henao would have finished in there, even though AGR isn't really suited to him.

Yep...I read it was Sergio a few months ago but it is obviously Seb.
Matt Rendall was saying recently that Seb is a major talent ....

He was impressive in the 3rd week of the Giro last year as a neo-pro.
