Crappy news to hear and a crappy way to end such a great career, maybe he was too close to Filip Meirheng... whatever it's spelled. Is it the big pressure cyclists have in Belgium? Or maybe he's right and didn't take the stuff knowingly?
Anyway, Cannondale is changing a lot these days, the bikes, the buisness... The team can reflect that with Martin Gujan who can improve, Fumic is a good racer (although with a shady patch of a career) but eliflap, you surprise me, Fontana? He's italian, he's a nice funny guy with much more personality than Roel... I love Marco! He's fast but he's more than fast, he always seems to want to have fun on the bike, he's one of the few that seems to not have forgotten that he became a pro mountain biker because he actually loves riding the bike and has much better technical skills.
Roel was on his way down from the top, Fontana is on the rise... And he has a moustache, what's not to like? Look ahead... if you guys want to see a lifetime of performance on a Cannondale, look at Tinker!
