    From the top leadership of the ATC it was said that they have already specified the presence of runners from Switzerland, Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, while the ratification of Costa Rica, Gianni Savio Androni Giocattoli is expected and three Colombian teams, highlighting the almost certain presence of Manzana Postobón and JB Ropa.

    Potentially nine foreign teams! Make that eight when the Swiss cry off again.

    *ch Ballet's allegations/accusations/report from the Vuelta a Colombia were lent additional credence by the recent 'octopus positive' ... ;)

    ... so I guess that a race that doesn't want to attract scandal wouldn't want them there. :shh

    Salinas should be back to defend the title he won earlier on this year, this time with the other Tachira team - Loteria del Tachira (they ride under the same umbrella anyway). However due to the parlous existence of the teams and let's be honest the parlous state of Venezuelan Cycling or just Venezuela in general, nothing is guaranteed. The teams missed Venezuela the other month and from what Chacon says it seems a very hand to mouth existence.

    Quote
    "The team was dismantled and is getting up again," the director said. "We request some bicycles and sports equipment. We know that with the dollar as it is, it is difficult, but there is a commitment from the board and the government of Táchira to make that effort.

    If he gets there though, he should have two very strong teams to help him and a potential rival. :shh

    Loteria:

    Jonathan Salinas
    Yimmi Briceno
    Roniel Campos (5th this year)
    Jorge Abreu (2nd in 2016)
    Eduin Becerra (6th this year)
    Gabriel Mendoza

    Kino:

    Luis Mora (has ridden Sibiu)
    Freddy Vargas
    Nelson Camargo (4th in 2015)
    Daniel Abreu

    Probably the same story as last year. No Venezuelan team in Costa Rica = no Costa Rican one in Tachira.
