B. Cooke on Horner's Lampre contract
Giro + Vuelta for the old man. Horner would be riding in support of Niemiec and whomever else is the designated leader for Giro, but I find it hard to believe. Poor Niemiec, though. The guy has been riding for Conti teams most of his career (he's 33 now), he finally lands a WT deal, shines in Giro with a sixth place while riding for a former doper and a proven Ferrari client and now it looks like more gregario duties for him in May.
