Rigoberto Urán must count on his Sky team-mates to win the Giro d'Italia, not his compatriots, according to Team Colombia General Manager Claudio Corti.

"We've got different sponsors, and I've got to honour my sponsors," Corti told Cycling Weekly. "We can't have our riders being domestiques for Urán. I'd be happy to see Urán win the Giro, but 99 per cent of it he has to do, one per cent may come from friendship."
