It started an opinion article in the main Colombian newspaper, where the writer presented parts of the reality from the Team. Then Hector Urrego, a lead cycling journo, who actually benefits from the team attacked the article in his radio program.
So many people from La Ruta del Escarabajo and Altimetrías de Colombia put something longer together.
The hosting for La Ruta is not reliable and they are looking into alternatives.
Regarding the article it says:
Team budget gets 3M from the Colombian Government. (slosada: I read 3.8M is total budget including Italian sponsors and other Colombian institutions) and compares the results with Caja Rural running on a smaller budget.
Later it goes to reveal how the changed the goals of the team (to return to the highest level in cycling) to promote young talents (but 12 out of 19 riders are over 26 years old)
Then it mentions all the victories in 3 years and ZERO in 2015.
After that, the article analyses the calendar and says it doesn't go beyond 4 months and more than 50% were on "Waiting for invitation" state.
The team look amateurish the way they manage many things, like when they sent 6 riders to Trentino, and how the calendar doesn't fit the characteristics of the riders or simply they select the wrong type of riders because the goal is not to win, just to show the maillot and the bike brand.
Next paragraph explores constant delays in rider wages and how cyclists look to escape from the team even if that means to return to Colombia.
The Team management is stingy, it took too long to buy powermeters and they are one of the cheapest and really unreliable (ibike)
Same goes for the the plane tickets, and they are forced to stay in Italy paying rent from their own pocket, and losing the benefits of altitude training at home. This even goes from January and February when they can't ride outdoors. If riders want to train in Colombia they should pay their own tickets.
