“We have been talking with Alexis, and after experiencing European cycling, he did not feel he could give the team the contribution he wished to,” – General Manager Claudio Corti said. “Moving to Europe is a big jump, so he chose to race in Colombia next year, where he will be able to grow in technical and physical terms with less pressure on him.”
“Alexis is a nice guy, and we loved working with him in 2013. Hopefully he can work hard and we will see him back in Europe at some point – we wish him all the very best.”
Team Colombia’s technical staff will evaluate the signing of another valuable piece to restock the roster in the next few days.
