Regarding Rodriguez's move to Ineos (Automatic translation)

“It is a source of pride for us that one of the most powerful structures in cycling today is one of our riders, because it comes to reward the great work that is being done in the youth category and, in addition, the importance of an initiative such as the Campus Selection that we organize annually. At the Foundation we have set ourselves the objective of training good cyclists and we continue to work. Personally, I would have liked to have been able to count on Carlos for more time in the Foundation’s teams, and that he would have faced some season with our U23 structure, but these are not decisions that are in our hands. For our part, it only remains to wish him the best for his career,” says Francisco Javier Contador, general manager of the sports structures of the Alberto Contador Foundation.

Sounds like the team has some doubts about this move as well

Which Kometa rider(s) could get good results this year? Dina and Puppio i guess?
Pretty much. Dina is the safest bet. Puppio should be able to get results in TTs. Fancellu is an obvious talent as well, but still very young. Ropero did really well on the U23 scene in Spain last year and he's pretty allround but I don't expect a big breakthrough. The team expects a lot from Sergio Garcia is what I read in an interview a couple days ago. I don't know enough about the new Italian signings to properly judge them.
