Daniel Felipe Martinez has also signed for the team according to: http://revistamundociclistico.com/ruta/17605-el-futuro-de-daniel-felipe-martinez-sigue-ligado-a-colombia.html

THis part of the article makes no sense to me

Daniel Martínez, quien tuvo el placer de entrenar en el velódromo en el que el jueves el austriaco Matthias Brändle superó la marca de la hora, tiene claro que por su juventud (20 años), en el Team Colombia su tarea será de aprendizaje y aporte de gregario, "a semejanza de lo que hizo Rigoberto Urán en sus primeros años en Europa", le dijo en exclusiva a

Can someone translate that? I dont understand the 20 years and the part about Uran.


The transfers is a little strange as Martinez is currently still a junior! very talented rider though!

That because of his young age, he will have to go through a learning process and ride in a supporting role, similar to what Uran had to do when he came to Europe.

they are just bs'ing about him having to work himself up as a helper like uran (never) did (btw) and that he trains in same track as brandle rode hour record in aigle. martinez is kind of the uci sensation of this year as he was riding as a 17 year old junior among pro's and elite's because he was that strong

by the way martinez is part of the group of alex carera , manager well known in italy.
martinez is talented , even if at the worlds in ponferrada he did not perform well ( i do not remember if he fell but i am pretty sure that the colombian that fell was superman lopez , the winner of the avenir..).

i do not think that going with corti is a good thing for him.
team colombia is very bad in preparing and developing rider.
team colombiai is expected to come in italy in january again, so they gonne miss a good preparation again.
corti is continuing to do the same mistake.
team colombia will not be a good opportunity for martinez , unless he follows some other kind of preparation different from the team, arranged by carera that maybe wants to keep him close under his wings, in europe.
maybe carera does not want to leave martinez in colombia, where a rider run a logical risk of taking the wrong road.

Duarte will leave the team, he says he needs to train better and harder and improve his mentality but he still has big ambitions.

Martinez did get ill before this years worlds which was his biggest target this year.
In the 2013 Worlds Martinez was very strong though!

Don't blame him at all- He really failed to achieve what it has been expected from him after an early success in his career. The problem is which will be willing to "re launch" him? Lampre? - he'd be stuck there too.....

I'd say Garmin or IAM....
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?

you are right, martinez had an rinary tract infection before the words.
he has a big engine , i still think that team colombia , unless a big change happens, is the worst choice.

duarte is very talented, he has big numbers , but all along his career he struggled with consistency.
i do not think that lampre that is very badly organized is the right choice for him.
i hope he will go to another team. he need to be very strictly followed because his motivation and his training ethics are very doubtful.
only salda the great was able to really motivate him, but at the end even salda was deceived by duarte.
i think he has the skill too win hilly classics ( liege, lombardy) and beautiful mountain stages in big tour.
i think he will always suck in GC in GT, because of his lack of consistency.
in his career he has always had very bad days in stage races, remember especially what happened in vuelta colombia.

So what's up with this team?

Seems to be the embarrasment of Colombian cycling.

What are they waiting to fire the coach and Fabio Duarte together!!!!
