3/10 for effort my friend. Rujano is Venezuelan. You fail.

If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we?

1) Rujano isn't Colombian (as pointed out here above)

but more importantly, 2:
16. (45) [COL] URAN URAN Rigoberto SKY 26/01/1987 1162
19. (347) [COL] HENAO MONTOYA Sergio Luis SKY 10/12/1987 1136
60. (851) [COL] QUINTANA ROJAS Nairo Alexander MOV 04/02/1990 707
62. (22) [USA] LEIPHEIMER Levi - 24/10/1973 694
67. (207) [COL] BETANCUR GOMEZ Carlos Alberto ASA 13/10/1989 669

Thats 3 colombians who outperformed Leipheimer last year...all 3 of them at the age of 25 or younger.
And a 4th one (also younger than 25) just behind.

I think you'll find that those 'colombian prospects' do just fine..

I think you'll find Leipheimer has a better palmares than all of them combined.

Uran became pro before Leipheimer was born.

Well duh, because he is a gazillion years older and had ample time to build a honour list. I'll think you'll find Leipheimers honour roll at age 25 wasn't exactly on the same level as the Colombians. On the contrary in fact...
Also his first year in Europe was not exactly as impressing as Quintana and Henao for instance.

They've got more pro seasons combined. ;)

These Colombians have already been riding since forever. Has Uran really grown over the last 5 years? Yeah, barely. And I know what happened to him.

Most of which never happened now.

You keep focussing on Uran (who btw had his best season to date last year). Yet no answer at all to Henao (1st season), Quintana (1st season) and Betancourt (2nd season)

Too bad you are running out of arguments so fast, again, and start repeating the only bad one you have left over and over again. Just like always, you're a broken record, you always do the same. Without ever giving a satisfactory, well reasoned answer, just to get out of the real discussion.
Lame :)

I'm not really impressed by Henao. Quintana is very talented yes.

And Henao first season? Has been riding like a pro in South-America and you know it.

And what's so special about Betancurt? I can probably find a dozen youngsters with similar seasons in their second year as a pro.

Fact of the matter is that this bad cyclist Leipheimer has a better palmares than all 4 Colombians combined. :o

Of course just like we can't count Contador's 2010 Tour and 2011 Giro (among other races) we have to eliminate all of Leipheimer's races during his admitted period of shame.

Even with those results scrapped, it's still better. :o

You either eliminate everything from that period or you don't anyway. I watch cycling, not USADA's revisionist history book.

Give the Colombians time, by the time some of them get to the age Levi is now their palmares will have surpassed his. ;)

Andy Schleck, Joe Dombrowski, Nairo Quintana, and Vincenzo Nibali will break away from the pack with 25 km to go. Schleck will attack his breakaway companions with 2 km to go and solo in to win the 2016 LBL. Dombrowski will just beat Nibali in the sprint for 2nd wile Quintana takes 4th. ;)
