Colombian cycling back on the rise.
Almost three full decades after Colombian riders started their eighties blitz on the Tour de France, beginning a time when riders such as Lucho Herrera and Fabio Parra were amongst the most feared climbers in the sport, the country has moved a step closer to fielding another team in Grand Tours. The Colombia Coldeportes Pro Continental team is a full colombian team including former Tour de France yellow jersey wearer Victor Hugo Peña and the 2008 under 23 world road race champion Fabio Duarte. The sponsored bikes are from Bianchi and I really like the colour scheme reflecting the country's flag. Its very tastefully done. Too bad they didn't have the budget for the Oltre's, but still a nice choice.
