I'm not surprised to see Sevilla go to T-Moibile - they have been after him for years. I guess a year at Phonak has convinced him he can ride on a non-Spanish team, but you are right, at least he had some Spanish teammates there.

It does looks like T-Mob has real difficulty integrating new non-northern European riders into the team. They've signed a few Italian riders over the years, but Guerini is the the only one to get any results (and I've wondered how much more he might have done elsewhere). They didn't take full advantage of Fagnini and, had no clue what to do with Savoldelli once he recovered from this year's early crash. Evans is another underused talent. When leaving T-Mob, he mentioned riders who'd befriended him, and it was the non-Germans.

Maybe they ought to look to sign a Spanish or Italian DS as well as another Spanish climber or two.
