Untrue I believe. Isn't that website full of made-up news?
Well if that's the case, do they have any just reason to be making a joke about a deceased cyclist?

Apparently they were trying to emphasize how inhumanly the UCI treats it’s cyclists...

That would explain it. Though the feelings of disgust would just have to shift towards the website in that case.
They clearly went too far. I’m sure they'll be scorned for this.

Apparently Langeveld will leave Rabobank and will move to Sky next year.

According to the Telegraaf.

More cobbled riders for Sky please!
Too bad he leaves Rabo though. I think together with Boom and Breschel they would be an interesting force next year.
Just a small nitpick, but they don't say he is going to Sky. He is going to leave Rabobank, and has a good offer from Team Sky (De Jongh really wants him to come), but it's not certain he is going to ride for them.

Quite funny though that with Breschel rivalling Boom for leadership the only one to take a victory in a classic was Langeveld. Why Sky, though? What can he do that Flecha can't? They could more do with climbers or puncheurs than rouleurs IMO. They're stacked with sprinters and rouleurs.

How ironic.

'The course was known since October, bla-bla-bla'.

Amateur.

I've been reading Manolo Saiz twitter and He said several times that Il Giro is the worst organized race in the whole calendar! :eek:

Gilbert has offers from al World tour teams (except Euskaltel & Lampre), but would prefer a Belgian project. So biggest chance for Quickstep, Lotto & Omega Pharma (OPL will split next year)

Boonen has offers from 5 different team, but would prefer to stay with QS.
Too bad, I think a change of team would be good for Boonen...
