Bold career choice by MAL if he has priced himself out of staying at the team. No-one leaves Astana and becomes better, especially not GC specialists.
It is rumored that he is going to Bora. I guess Lopez was already asking for a pay raise and Vino is having money issues and had to let him go. This rumor has been going on even before the Tour started anyway. I am surprised it was public so late.

This sounds strange but Lopez for Movistar!!


I don't know why. Don't understand. Could be the sponsors who have to push for a Colombian GT rider. They are big in Colombia.

My only guess would be that (if I remember correctly) the team is required to have 3 Colombians on the roster and after letting Betancur go they only have 2 on their roster for next year. Otherwise this makes no sense at all. With Mas and Soler the only GT Lopez would be given leadership of is the Giro.
