...has left Landbouwkrediet to ride for the new Gruppo Santoni team under former Domina Vacanza DS Vincenzo Santoni. This guy is a big bruiser of a sprinter:

You're welcome.

I'm guessing Santoni's new squad will be Div2, but that hasn't been announced yet that I know of. Landbouwkrediet was Div1.

For all his size and intimidating looks, Metal-shenko is at best a 2nd tier sprinter, who will lose most of the time to the likes of Freire, McEwen, Zabel, and even an aging Tom Steels, who he was a teammate with last year. But he sure is powerful looking. He may have more success on a Div2 team, in the smaller races.
