I don't know, but Quintana disappearing in Colombia for 3 months and smashing at the Tour, or Nibali winning the Giro with one leg are also some kind of wonder.
no?

At least Caju Rural will not get diluted further.

Hopefully Ulissi and Costa will leave Lampre as soon as possible.

:rolleyes:
don't worry, fans view of the pro-cycling teams, are not the same view as the pro-riders of those teams
Costa and Horner have just signed a 1 year deal
If Ulissi does not like the smell of Horner Big Macs, he'll just have to wait the end of the season

Unlike Horner, Costa has actually had some clinic-related problems in the past...

there's is nothing wondering about quintana training like a madman at home at 3000+ metres and then coming back to europe in extreme form. training hard on such altitude(which happens to be your home all your life) is better than having a gt in your legs.

Such great news to see Horner sign a deal. I can't wait to see him dancing on the pedals again riding away from guys half his age. :)
