he has all the characteristics for doing great gc though. but he's not a winner, totally different from guys like henao or duarte, who are winners. they have a greater future.

anyway to be honest i expected uran to already be a top rider by now but he still hasn't delivered, the talent appears to be there but something must be missing


Talented enough to get Olympic Silver though

that silver medal is a clear testament to his physical talent and mental lack of talent/winner mentality

I rewatched the race recently and the way he was caught napping by Vino was rather hilarious.

In the interview he says vino was stronger anyway.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

Interview with Rigoberto ahead of the giro.

Seems fully committed to supporting Wiggins.

On another note, is he the landlord for Henao and Quintana, and that it is easy getting the rent of Sergio but hard of Nairo?

Sounds like he is expecting something big from Colombians in Worlds.

You miss-understood him. He is planning to leave the apartment, so he is negotiating with Henao and Quintana their new rent. So he says that Henao is easy to negotiate with. Quintana is harder to negotiate with. That's all.

Google's translation seems confusing, am I right to understand that the thee are currently sharing an apartment in Pamplona but Uran is leaving them to move to Monaco?

Hope he visits MC and smacks some sense into her....

Yes, he said that in the interview, but he was joking about to rise rent to Quintana, becouse he is more difficult to convence than Henao...:D

Anyway, I know Quintana is thinking about to buy a House in a village in Navarra, rather cheap.
I am a big fan of Rigo since he was 20... but he dissapoint me day by day.
I hope anyway he win something importante this year: Suisse, Vuelta, Worlds or Lombardie, becouse he has a lot of potential.

It would be a good new, but I can`t believe till see it. Verona will be a GC contender, but he is 20, there is time for that
