Only 1 new team next year can aim at riding Grand Tours and I dont think its this one. :p

On a serious note, next year probably it would be too early; Id already be glad to see them with a pretty decent calendar.

i hope they can get rafael infantino.
he has completed his maturation and in utah and rcn he has accomplished the consistency he always lacked.
more than that, he has already lived in italy in his under season and he already had a pro season in europe ( mainly in italy) with amica chips , a weak and badly organized team.
so his adjustement to european racing and living can be easy.
duarte for instance , this year did well, but first time he came to italy, two years ago with savio, completely failed because was not to able to cope with the situation.
profff

If they do get a GT invitation, they'd probably end up in the Vuelta. Although, I would like to see them ride the Giro.

They couldn't do any worse than Andalucía-Caja Granada IMO.

Nope. Seeing as how the Colombian teams rode during Utah and Colorado, they'll surely race better than them.

When the road goes uphill. I think any TTT or hard flat stages with some serious cross winds could be their undoing I would think. But I would give them a ride, I mean why not?

Looking good for them. Imagine them challenging Rujanos', Sellas' and Serpas' team at the Giro. That would be epic and wishful thinking for next year.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

It still rankles that they got invited when Caja Rural didn't. Next year they start in Navarre though, so good chance for Caja to get the ride.
