The worst thing about the demise of Caisse d'Epargne is that we won't see that spectacularly awesome Spanish champion's jersey anymore.

Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) became a father for the second time around. This week Elsa Rodríguez (3150 g) saw the world. The baby and mother are both doing good.

Great rider, has had a great year-he's doing the Vuelta right? Hope so, the field this year might give him his best chance at ever getting on the podium at a GT.

He's not Portuguese, he's Catalan, so his name is Joaquim Rodríguez. :p

Sometimes he get very understimated, but this year he's showing more than ever that he can be up there when in good form.

He was a bit underrated as Caisse kept screwing up his preparations time after time by forcing insane demands on him (2008, anyone?). At 31, he doesn't have long left, so it's good he's taking advantage of the freedom he's getting this year :)

That is Joaquim Rodríguez, check his face.

It's the Volta a Catalunya leader's jersey.

...that and the fact that it will be the end of one of my favorite teams I believe starting as far back as Reynolds with Pedro Delgado. I hope the rumours I've been hearing are true about Telefonica coming in as a primary sponsor.
