Did everyone know that Heras has left USPS?

Seems like quite a blow given his strength in dragging LA up mountains.

At times Roberto can be a huge help, but its not that he NEEDS him. Roberto wasn't in form in 03 and it didn't make a big difference in the mountain tactics. (Armstrong was only on form to attack in one mountain stage anyway)
Mostly I'll just miss seeing him ride the Vuelta with USPS.

and they replaced him the day after it was announced. as soon as it became public knowledge, the line to get on postal began to form.

Jose Azevedo...who is a better time trialer and will be better in the TTT and can climb..and has a fifth and sixth in grand tours (if my memory is ok)
