    Please no!!!!

    http://www.ciclo21.com/chris-horner-negocia-para-fichar-por-el-caja-rural-rga/

    I want to see LLS, Arroyo, Manzano, Txurruka and co attack anything that moves, not tow a MAMIL around Europe all year :(

    Vivelo is a Bulgarian bike company who sponsor Caja Rural and CCC Polsat
    http://www.vivelo-bikes.com/teams

    The company was founded by Damyan Nikolov who is an ex-pro but I can't find any information about his career.

    It seems that Matthew Bright is the USA distributor based in Utah who I can't find any information about either.

    It all seems very strange, but then again nothing more about the Chris Horner story would surprise me.

    Rujano in talks with a team to compete at the Tour of Colombia.

    http://elimpulso.com/articulo/rujano-me-queda-mucho-en-el-ciclismo#.UtMKs_RdXXo

    However later on in the article it also says "He also plans to return to Europe and take part in the Tour of Spain this year".

    All very confusing.  :S

    Could be Team Colombia maybe?

    in theory, yeh, Team Colombia is the only team that would be allowed to do both races. But it's not necessary to do both races for the same team afaik, so in theory it could be every team. Europcar could make sense for example

    Good for Pujol that he gets a ride, and even one that I personally think will turn into a much bigger team for 2015 ...

    An Post-Chainreaction are currently on a training camp in Calpe. Guess who's there as well? Bobbie Traksel.
    He's not wearing team kit or anything, but I think he's an #anpost rider in all but name already. They're just looking for a bit of cash to sign him for.

    No decision yet on whether Ballan’s vacant slot on BMC Racing Team will be filled by another rider


    If I was BMC I wouldn't want to swap one dodgy rider for another, so Samu may be the safer choice over Horner. Emphasis on er though.

    true, except of cause for that rumor Tinkov made happen that Sanchez didn't get on Saxo Tinkoff because of doubtful passport.

    Brent Copeland told VeloNews that, if the team can find the budget, he hopes to have Horner’s signature by Friday, January 24.
    Why is all this discussed in public? Not very usual for a cycling transfer.

    There was a bit of disagreement about this late yesterday on Twitter.

    I won't look for the sources now but there was an open question about why VN's version of the news (Copeland hopes to sign Horner by Jan 24) was so different to everyone else's version (Copeland among others has been contacted by Horner's agent).

    All VN's Neal Rogers would say was that he stood by his story but it remains considerably more detailed and more optimistic than the other, more limited versions online.
