    St. Felice speaks of Clown Prince Marco's chances of joining Bianchi. From today's CyclingNews

    Marco Pantani's dreams of a ride in the Centenary Tour this year will likely remain exactly that,
    after the possibility of riding with the new Team Bianchi was knocked on the head by the sponsors.
    "There was never a meeting between the directors of Bianchi and the directors of Mercatone Uno to
    plan for the next Tour," said long time Bianchi associate Felice Gimondi. "There was only a meeting
    in view of a reunification in 2004-2005."

    Gimondi added, "The regulations allow for the transfer of a contract to another team, so technically
    it could be done. But the team already has two leaders (Ullrich and Casero), and to introduce a
    third one is improbable."

    Thanks, nobody here reads CN, that was very helpful.

    >leaders (Ullrich and Casero)

    I don't see Casero on http://www.uci.ch/data_2003/road/teams/TT1/tbi.htm

    And the team is German after all, but still with a Dutch address.

    The UCI only lists 16 riders, where there are in fact 19 (unless some slipped through the cracks
    last week)... Casero is on the Bianchi roster for the Tour of Germany.

    cheers, Jeff
