Why would any team sign him?

Nice job by Lavenu to not fire him when he had the chance.
For the very very very very very very very remote chance that they could get him cheaply and he'd actually lose weight and win a major race? :eek:

Yeah, probably not gonna happen.

I don't think that he'll demand a big contract, so signing him wouldn't be a high risk, he could do well in a team with a few other Colombian riders. The best thing for his career would be to move to Italy or Spain with his family and signing with a team that gives him the opportunity to ride many races in that country and Giro and/or Vuelta, he could ride many races and still have his family close to him.
 
Ryo predicted this, "AG2R shouldnt let him go back to Colombia, he will go out of shape again." Or probably his post went something like: "AG2R are *** morons for letting this fat piece of *** go back to Colombia to fill his gut with burrito's every *** day."

Ryo was right. Ryo is always right.

Does anybody know why he wouldn't start tomorrow?

There was rumour he was sick and he posted some pictures from Europe? To me this all makes no sense at all. :D

Was that so hard to predict? The difference, I suspect, is that, to Ryo, AG2R is to blame.

This brat deserves no respect as a 'rider' whatsoever, in my opinion. I seriously don't know what's cruisin' his mind to act this way. Does he think fortune will eventually seek him out of nowhere? Does he want the best of both worlds whilst doing nothing to deserve it? If he just wants to live life and eat saturated fats when he feels like it why doesn't he man up and just quit the sport? No, he likes the paycheck at the end of the month when he didn't work for it. Nah, can't have my sympathy.

He does live in Italy with his wife and son during the season as far as I know.

Also all the "too fat" *** is so 2014 by the way...physically he looked relatively good all year. It's a matter of motivation I think - or really a severe disease, if those "Angina" rumors are true

Según explica el conjunto francés a BiciCiclismo, el colombiano llegó a Europa la pasada semana pero "demasiado tarde" para estar en Polonia y Burgos "no estaba en su programa". "Ahora no está en buena forma para competir en el Tour de l'Ain", afirman.

Ahora bien, cuando solo quedan 12 días para la salida en Puerto Banús sostienen que "él está en grupo de 11 corredores para la Vuelta a España" y que "la decisión se tomará en los próximos días, según sea su forma".

Lo cierto es que se ha quedado sin días para competir antes de la Vuelta, salvo el Tour de Limousin pero acaba un día antes de la ronda española.
