Team bikes transfers or rumours 2013?

nice! thanks for opening the thread


there's Focus for Ag2r in 2013

Pinarello for 1 more year for SKY

but the most important question is: will Merida replace Specialized for Astana, as i've read here in the riders transfer thread?

According to Ralph Denk (Team NetApp) they will ride on Fuji-Bikes in 2013 for their new formed team NetApp-Endura (fusion with british Continental-Team Endura).

Rai's Radiocorsa said that Colnago is leaving Reverberi's team and Wilier would possibly step in as main sponsor.

At the same time Wilier would be replaced at Lampre by Merida.

Cannondale will probably be main sponsor at actual Liquigas and they already requested some riders (see transfers 2012-2013).

So what's happening to the Ukrainians?

(Sorry, not a bike transfer).
It seems that we are going to leave Lampre , italians do not give any opportunities to our riders to rider for their own results . Contract with Lampre will be terminated ahead of schedule .

Interesting if Merida sponsors Lampre. There will then be two Taiwanese bike companies in the pro peleton.

They still can't compete with Giant though.

According to Tuttobiciweb, the Reverberi team (now called Colnago and sponsored by Colnago) will ride on MCipollini bikes for 2013; they don't mention how long is the deal.

I wonder if that means Farnese Vini will change. Could they go to Focus if Aqua e Sapone are due to stop?
