I'd be fully expecting Geraint Thomas to be racing for Barloworld as well. Hopefully Tinkoff will let either Hamilton or Jaksche race, but it's probably beneath them.

scores and dozens, real friends
when you're winning, never lonely
when you keep winning
Another Astana rider positive and the Germans do not want the tour winner...Just what the bloody hell is going on? Don't they know they are going to get caught with modern sophistication or are they so bloody arrogant thinking they will get away with it sic doping

Given that's the 3rd in the last couple of months, i can't really see them being allowed to go to the Vuelta myself.
The whole thing is a load of bull**** and Contador wasn't even got to race in Hamburg anyway
On a brighter note at least the Tour of Germany is starting and (IMO) Deutschland-Tour >>> Vuelta for at least for interest and crowds. How many turn up and see a Vuelta stage? I'm going for Leiphemier to win the overall even if Jens Voigt will be motivated to get victory in his home race while I think Paolo Bettini will get a stage (so will Ciolek IMO), I don't think he will go too hard and look to use it as training for the World which are held in Stuttgart.
Cancellara is confirmed for the Tour of Britain.
And Discovery Channel is no more. If they can not find a new sponsor then who can?
David Millar picked up 2nd overall in the ENECO Tour, ended up only 11 seconds adrift. In a good week for British cycling, Mark Cavendish picked up the points jersey in the same tour.
Heard that Cadel Evans could be getting a super-domestique in the form of Levi Leiphemier.
Bradley Wiggins is moving to T Mobile next year.
Cadel Evans as already got a stronger squad fornext year with the signing of Yaroslav Popovych who finished 8th this year and a stage winner from last year.
