Very interesting if true.The team claims to have been assured of participation in the October 16 event, the ‘race of the falling leaves’ and the final one-day classic of the cycling season.
However earlier this week organizer RCS Sport issued a list of participating teams that did not feature RadioShack. It is the second major snub of the season for the American outfit, which was not invited to the Vuelta a Espana. The team itself surprised some by opting not to send a squad to May’s Giro d’Italia
A statement from the team on Friday read: “In January 2010, an agreement was reached between Team RadioShack and RCS Sport regarding the participation of the US Team at the Giro di Lombardia (Tour of Lombardy) 2010.
“Totally surprised, Team RadioShack learned through the press, on September 6, that it was not included in the list of teams participating at the Italian event.
