Filippo Colombo on the road! Or not?

Filippo Colombo signs for the Q36.5, Professional road team and therefore leaves Julien Absalon's BMC Racing Team.

Here are the first details on Doug Ryder's team with Vincenzo Nibali as consultant: 23 riders in the squad with partner Scott for bikes.

The team will have a Professional license for 2023 and will have affiliation in Switzerland: Q36.5 is a brand of the Q&E company from Bolzano, which will be the main sponsor of the team. Filippo Colombo this year made a significant leap in quality with the victory in the Short Track A Mont Sainte Anne and many top 10 performances in the World Cup.

Some time ago we had talked about a probable passage of Columbus to Scott because of Forster's contract expiration but we were wrong, even if the new team uses Scott: is it possible a new trend where road teams (see Pidcock, Koretkzy and others) give their athletes carte blanche to race off-road? We hope so because the loss of Columbus is a shame given his growth over the years.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
