Liberty Seguros have for the past few months been setting up their new team for 2011 and signing several riders.
After all this time, now they've suddenly decided they don't want to have a team because of the doping positives they had last time around. Team's dead in the water.

Wait, what?

They surely win this month's WTF award. That is truly baffling.

Then how about sharing your source with us, please?

This is a recurring problem you have, I would hate to have to warn or sanction you again.

Susan
always will if ... and most times I do Susan you know that ... don't play that
childish game with people who got the intel ... like the saying 'don't kill the messenger'.

sometimes I can't for the same nn journo reason par example when it is m to m ...

But in this case it is also a little payback for "sporting suicide" pulled over EE in 2009, and for the sake of it Mikel Astarloza will start in the damn 2011 Vuelta, as for that the Vuelta route might been leaked in advance.


Your e-mail would be handy to trow you a line or some excl. stuff before as to some other respected outlets.

Then at least say something like "my sources tell me". Otherwise it leads to the impression that you are making this stuff up.

If anything leaves the impression you're making stuff up, it's saying that your sources told you so ;)
 
Daotec seems to be right most of the time though, so I think he deserves more respect than a "I need a source or I will ban you", which seems a bit childish to me.

Anyway, Euskaltel Euskadi is, contrary to earlier reports, planning on participating in the Giro next year. My sources say. Actually it was Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano.

And we don't need Euskatel in the WorldTour! They don't have to ride Paris-Roubaix, Tour de Pologne and Beijing etc ... .

ProTour failed, this will fail too, mark my words.

The only team in this list that we really don't need, is that one with just 4 wins in 2010 season :rolleyes:

First try to spell the name correctly.

And then, I promise you teams like Euskaltel and the rejected Cofidis will be of much, much more value to the ProTour than a HTC, Luxembourg or BMC, to name a few.

If you find a spelling mistake ... you may keep it.

Anywho I'm not too bummed about Cofidis missing out. As someone said earlier, this will spare them from having to race in Beijing and Canada and so on. That way they can focus more on the European scene and hopefully make a bigger impact. And I hope they'll get a wildcard for the Tour!
