A New Carrot in the bunch: Pello Bilbao

20

Called up from Orbea to mix it up in the sprints...apart from having a cool name, he was Basque U-23 champ but he never raced outside of Iberia. Had a 6th place in a Ruta del Sol stage. First race will be Catalunya.

Rasmus Guldhammer to leave HTC-Columbia for Team Concordia

21

Rather shocking news. The uber-talented Dane almost quit riding bikes all together; he didn't have the "family" aspect at HTC that he had on his Danish squads. He hopes that the spark will return in a more comfortable environment.

Two Portuguese riders, Rui and Mario Costa, positive

153

This will be the 3rd positive this year in Portugal with Joao Benta admitting to doping 10 days ago.Infractioned occured during the Portuguese TT champs. So there is Mosquera, Contador, Garcia Dapena in the Vuelta...Sevilla was positive in Colombia...Valverde and Serrano were suspended...Rosendo Prado had abnormal findings in his blood passport but cleared...Toni Tauler, former Caisse rider, was positive for EPO...Manuel Vazquez was positive for EPO. So it could of been a better year for the Iberian peninsula.
