Is that the teams that got an invite or the ones you would like to?

JECR?

Stick with Chaves dude. You've been spending too much time on CQ ;)

Great to see Colombia invited :cool:
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. 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? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

It does concern me a bit that they may save Chaves and Atapuma for the Tour, if that happens.

well I didn't see that coming. I really thought Bardiani were hopeless.

Excellent :D

by the way, Katusha has been screwed badly, both from Uci and now not getting a Giro spot.
it reminds me of Unibet's bad luck

farnese said that his financial demands were too big. anyway there is a very high possibility he will sign with farnese or bardiani. he can't afford to miss il giro this year.
