"Continuing my weekly-ish transfer-and-other-news from the women’s peloton….. Do you want the good news or the bad news first? If I start with the bad, we’ll know it can only get better - and I promise, it DOES get better… The women’s transfer news has generally, in the last couple of years, been full of really great teams disappearing - and sadly this year is no exception, as this week we’ve heard that American-Italian team Colavita-Forno d’Asolo is folding."

Good news, bad news and interesting commentary on women’s cycling…. - Podium Cafe

This has some bad news (Colavita-Forno d’Asolo folding), semi-good news (Kelly Benefits taking over some of the team, & Colavita staying on as sponsors) & some good signs about Diadora Pasta Zara possibly continuing - and the full 2012 rosters for GSD Gestion and Vaiano Solaristech.  All that and some comedy tweets about news from riders - with reasons to hate the UCI and discovering dead bodies!  I wrote this, so if you click on it, I’ll love you forever
