Manzana Postobon can beef up their roster for next year if they get Betancur.

They used to ride on Scott, but these days they use Gios.

Just like that, they're in the Vuelta. How I don't know, but just a few months as a PCT seem to be enough.

Doubt any first year PCT should receive an invitation to a GT - It's a strange world.

I have a strong feeling that they bought themselves in.

I know its early, but a possible line-up for the Vuelta? I don't know nearly enough about this awesome looking team (constantly reminding me about Beloki..) Especially Aldemar Reyes on PCS, 2003 Joseba nostalgia deluxe.

Barring injuries: Aguirre, Reyes, Molano, Vilela, Bol, Bohorquez, JF Osorio, Piedra. Last spot up for grabs, probably between Paredes, Suaza and perhaps Orjuela. Higuita and Jhojan are too young me thinks, latter hasn't even ridden anything yet.

In past weeks:
º 2nd in Klasika Primavera (Paredes)
º 3rd in GP de Denain (Molano)
º 7th in GC in Circuit de Sarthe (Bol)

Things are starting to look better and the riders seem to be growing more and more accustomed to Europe with the day. Jhojan Garcia (19) and Juan José Amador (18) made their debuts as well. It's all good so far and a big win might be just around the corner. Their program for the following weeks:

º 15.04 Tour du Finistère
º 17.04 Tro-Bro Léon
º 29.04 Vuelta Asturias Julio Alvarez Mendo
º 05.05 Vuelta Ciclista Comunidad de Madrid
º 17.05 Tour of Norway
º 23.05 Tour des Fjords
º 14.06 Tour de Costa Rica

Molano is really impressive. Good to see Colombians are producing all types of riders these days.

Here is an article of a few weeks ago from El País about Saldarriaga and Manzana Postobon: http://deportes.elpais.com/deportes/2017/03/28/actualidad/1490724297_173243.html (Spanish, will translate later)

What a great Vuelta they're having. Bol came close to the red jersey twice and Aldemar and Aguirre are already showing they have improved massively from only one week of racing. I'm hoping to see some more from the latter two in the break in the mountain stages, because a very nice result seems to be looming. Molano also doesn't seem to have much trouble finishing the harder stages, and I hope he can show his speed later on in the Vuelta after an unlucky start with a crash.

I agree 100%. I love seeing these small teams, who doesn't get much TV time elsewhere. Obviously it will be extremely difficult for them to get a stage win, but what an achievement it would be for the team!

Huh? A 7th as the best stage result with 5 stages going to breaks is now a "great" Vuelta?

They haven't been bad, but certainly not great.
