    Hm. McEwen must be worried, his team won't be working for him any more.

    Either that or he's retiring on us after attempting to win some classic.

    Interesting what will happen in 2009 when this Australian team finally gets going and at the rate sponsors are leaving (Gerolsteiner are another leaving next year) it shouldn´t be too hard to get in because McEwen has said he would like to race for them.

    Popo is a great signing for Lotto, leadership in the Giro and super helper at the Tour. Doubt they would have the cash to sign Levi as well(i guess depends what happens with Horner.
    Also Craig, any help for Hoste next season?

    Nobody major at this stage but not getting Stjin Devolder is a big blow for P/L and a good coup for Quick Step.

    Interesting news that T-Mobile have signed Swede Thomas Lovkvist (the computer doesn't speak Swedish), he has finished all three Tours he has done and was the youngest rider in the 2005 race. I think he has a lot of talent but needs to improve on his mid-60s overall that he has recorded, but he is only 23 so he has plenty of time. A good signing.

    Cavendish takes the prolouge in the Tour of Britian, Leonardo Piepoli takes the stage in the Vuelta while Denis Menchov takes the Golden Jersey and has over 2 minutes on Vladimir Efimkin and 2.27 on Cadel Evans while Oscar Pererio called it a day. So last year is looking like a one off? I say so...

    Meanwhile in the Tour of Poland Lampre win a 3km TTT, WTF is the point

    Mind you the race shouldn't be in the Pro Tour anyway.

    I was at the finish of Stage Two of the Tour of Britain today in Taunton.

    There was a good atmosphere there and a big turnout. Phil Liggett was commentating over the PA, with reports being telephoned to him from the front of the race. The stage route took the riders over Exmoor, including the infamously steep Porlock Hill, where I would have preferred to watch. The peleton split into two large groups, Cavendish and all of T-Mobile being unable to stay with the lead group, led by the Russian Tursov, and he became leader on the road.

    10km from the finish, Kenyan Froome made a lone bid for glory- he stayed out front for about 5 kms, but they caught him. Coming into the finishing straight, there was a big right-hand turn where the High Street crosses the River Tone. There was a big pile up, ruining the sprint, but Tursov escaped harm and took the stage and the yellow jersey. Riders hobbled or were pushed home, applauded by the large crowd, and the other half of the peleton arrived about six minutes later. It was a really good day, and a lot of fun.

    Steve Cummings to ride for Barloworld next year. Should be useful for the classics and any GT Barloworld are invited to.

    Landis should be getting a two-year ban now.

    Denis Menchov, unless he explodes today should get his first proper Vuelta win, not counting his 2005 one where he got by default.

    Imagine if Rasumussen wasn't a lying SOB

    That said Paolo Bettini wins the words for a second time as a **** you to the Suttgart Mayor and the Council. Look I am all for clean cycling but I am sick of this houlier-then-thou hypocritical attitude that comes from Germany.

    On a more positive note we will see the Tour Down Under in the ProTour or whatever it is next year. Well deserved IMO.

    While this will be T-Mobile's squad for next year: Michael Barry, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Marcus Burghardt, Mark Cavendish, Gerald Ciolek, Scott Davis, John Devine, Bernhard Eisel, Linus Gerdemann, Bert Grabsch, Andre Greipel, Roger Hammond, Adam Hansen, Greg Henderson, George Hincapie, Kim Kirchen, Andreas Klier, Servais Knaven, Craig Lewis, Thomas Lövkvist, Tony Martin, Marco Pinotti, Morris Possoni, Vicente Reynes, Michael Rogers, Kanstantsin Siutsou and Bradley Wiggins.

    Pretty strong IMO and Tony Martin is German not British BTW. While there is still a chance for Erik Zabel to still join if he can get out of his contract for Milram next year. Would be itstl.
