    Haedo

    From the mouth of McCormack, "Haedo will be winning stages in Grand Tours in 2-3 years." The boy seems to have impressed a hell of a lot of people recently, so screw Landis and Levi, what about our Latin sensation?
    Side note: With Rujano still garnering attention (Quick-Step though?!?) is South America the next place for cycling to start fishing for talent.

    I believe it. Saw what he did in California and on Sunday in Georgia.

    He's fast. And he's one of the nicest guys. Great sense of humor.

    Haedo is fast and strong. Neg word on him is that he needs to get lighter so he can ride 200+ klicks and still be there for the sprint. And as far as South America goes, what about all the Colombians who've been racing in Europe for the last two decades?

    Forgive my ignorance (seriously) but other than Penna what other Columbians have been riding in Europe? I know there's a Brazilian on one of the DII teams (bright orange jerseys) but who else?

    Maybe Ivan Parra?
    How long do you give Haedo, before he's snatched from Toyota/United Pro? Will he last the season with them?
    If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, then come sit next to me.

    Off the top of my head, in addition to Parra:

    Santiago Botero, 2002 world tt champ, 2001 world tt bronze medalist, TDF polka dot jersey wearer, 3 TDF stage wins

    Victor Hugo Pena, former teammate of LA, wore yellow jersey in '03

    Martin Rodriguez, world pursuit champ around 1970

    Samuel Cabrera, finished high in TDF in 80s (10th-12th, I think)

    Edgar Corredor, also top 20 TDF finisher in the 80s

    Perhaps the greatest: Luis Herrera, polka dot jersey winner in TDF

    Most of these guys were great climbers -- Spanish teams began signing these guys after seeing them just ride off in the mountains in amateur races. The original question, though, is a good one: will the next big wave come from Brazil and Argentina, great international sporting nations in soccer, motor racing, basketball, etc.?

    leipheimer thinks so too, "[ToC] It's a great opportunity for them to improve their game and to show if they've got what it takes to move up, and in my opinion, there's really only [Juan Jose] Haedo who showed he's worthy of moving on to the ProTour."

    Maurilo Fischer is Brazilian and would be with Rujano, the two best talents in SA cycling, taking into accoutn Ardila, Botero, Pena.
