Damn, he can climb, I can't belive no Divison I team is trying to get him.. also Panaria with all kinds of drug problems. Need him in the TdF at least...

His contract is up this year and he said there was a foriegn team interested in him but they didn't say if Div. 1 or not. He said he wanted to stay in Italy though!
Why leave Panaria?mr_spin

He seems to excel as a stage winner rather than a GC guy, so that limits his options. Any team that has GC aspirations isn't a good fit because working for the team leader doesn't allow him to do his thing.

If he is smart, he will stay on one of the smaller Italian teams that only care about stage wins in the Giro. Panaria seems to be a good fit. Why mess that up?
