webvan said:What a poor year this has been for Uran. It looks like he never got over losing the 2014 Giro to Quintana. Not sure what his prospects are at leading another top level team now...
Vaughters seems to agree:SergeDeM said:He messed up this year but only because he went to the Tour. Nobody wants to get sick, and that killed his Giro, but he should've quit the Giro halfway through if he wanted to do the Tour, or he should've not gone to the Tour and prepped for the Vuelta instead.
Now the terrible decision of going to the Tour is going to cost him big bucks next year, as his market value must have dropped considerably. Without the Tour, and considering the Vuelta parcours, he would've been a real contender. I believe he will find a WT team that will offer him GC leadership, but it won't be a top team (Lampre? IAM?). His best bet for 2016 is to do Giro-Vuelta and forget about the Tour, considering the big four will all surely be there again and none of them will do the Giro.
CyclingNews said:“Rigo is a leader not just for his excellent skills on the road, but for his charisma," said Cannondale-Garmin CEO Jonathan Vaughters. "He brings style and passion to racing and he will be a huge asset to the team. Rigo has one more step to climb in the Giro and I will put my heart into helping make that happen. We are very excited to add him to our 2016 line up.”

Are those their new helmets?!?
I feel so sorry for those riders...they look horrible.
Isn't he riding the Giro? Jonathan Vaughters said that they signed him as a leader for the Giro. A giro team with Uran, Dombrowski, Formolo and Simon Clark would be really strong, add a few of the other Italian riders that they also have (Moser and Villella) and you have a pretty good team for the Giro.Taxus4a said:IMO Rigo this year should focus in the spring, with Lieja and Romandia at the end, later the Tour, and if he has bad luck in le Tour, forget it and in the Vuelta, and of course the Olimpics. Lombardia it depens...
Dombrowski should be the man for the Giro, and Talanky should be with Rigo in le Tour, and if he is not stronger, to help. People as Navardauskas, King, or Craddock must be always protecting him on the plane and hilly stages.
Escarabajo said:He is looking very skinny. Well, that could be the picture anyway.
