From ivanbasso.net

Ivan Basso hopes that he will have the opportunity to return to Team CSC in the future.


and I parted as friends,? the former Team CSC star states in a recent

interview with Danish daily Politiken. ?And I hope that I will be able

to return. We concluded that it would be best to part for the moment,

but there is nothing that rules out that we may pick up our cooperation

at a latter date.?

Ivan Basso also expresses understanding for

the conduct of Bjarne Riis over the past couple of months. ?I do not

believe that Bjarne wanted to treat me poorly. He was forced to act as

he had done. I know and understand that he has the well-being of the

whole team to think off,? Basso comments. Basso admits that right after

the suspension from the Tour de France, he felt very unfairly treated.

?I feel that at the very least we (the riders accused) should have had

the chance to let our lawyers review the case, before a decision of

such significance for a rider be taken.?

Ivan Basso confirmed

that he is still looking for a team, although he noted that if he were

only interested in money, he would already have signed a contract.

However, he is delaying the decision while studying the circumstances

of the various teams he is considering.

Giovanni Lombardi,

Basso?s teammate at Team CSC who is retiring after this season, has

confirmed that he intends to start working as an rider agent in the

future. Among the riders that he is likely to be representing are, in

addition to Ivan Basso, also Franck and Andy Schleck.

I would like to see him at Barloworld ..But a proffesional cyclist has a relatively short career which could be over in one fall....so my head says Discovery,cause they have the financial back up to treat Ivan they way Lance was treated and build a team around him,

What on earth is Lombardi doing acting as an agent.  He has consistently said that when he retires from cycling he wants to focus on his shoe shop in Madrid.
