José Rujano (Selle Italia), the Venezuelan climber which impressed the cycling scene at this year's Giro d'Italia, where he won the mountains and combativity jerseys as well as stage 19 to Sestrière, will change to Quick.Step during next season. The emphasis is on 'during', as the 23 year-old is still tied to his team until the Giro 2006. As the Belgian team's manager Patrick Lefévère told Het Laatste Nieuws, "I'm all set with Rujano, but he still has a contract with Selle Italia which need him to get a wildcard for the Giro d'Italia. That's why he'll be free only after the Giro - then he can still ride the Tour or the Vuelta for us."
