    Wouldn't look out of place on our midweek pensioners' cafe ride.

    If I was Etixx-Quick Step I wouldn't go near him. Far too much of a risk with his going missing, his weight/outlook and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he got busted at some point. I enjoy watching him when he's on song, but hey!

    Quintana and Uran seem a different breed, Betancur reminds me of Rujano, great talent but totally unprofessional

    I hope he gets things together. Don't want to look back and end up comparing him to Colymore

    He's going for the wooden spoon.

    Apparently he'll be allowed to lick the chocolate off it.

    I hope he can get himself together or it would be a sad demise and a waste of talent.

    He is now the lanterne as Pelucchi has abandoned.
  • all calm again

    These signs of improvement, a clarification of his future in the team - "In the end, we had a good talk. They wanted to keep me and I think you need to appreciate a team that wants you to stay," he says about his decision to stay with Ag2r-La Mondiale - and his parenthood, have changed the prospects for the Colombian who expects to be a protagonist in the biggest races in 2015.

    Good to see he's still carrying his signature 'pooch' :P

    Stat update per procycling - He has been in the team for 9 of Movistar's wins this season, as well as winning two himself

    He's down to ride Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday. Maybe that's why he's bulked up.

    Now it explains why Carlos has got large.... he is turning into a cobble classic rider. But is only available for the first 130km of Flanders before the cobbles start and he abandoned before the race went up hill.

    He's looking forward to the Ardennes.



















    Fantastic paté.

    He stepped off before the pave. People suspect to have lunch, which no, he probably hasn't finished yet :)

    In seriousness, how long will Movistar's patience last? How does he keep getting starts? Even though they're not a classics team!
