With the announcements by Discovery and Unibet and the probability that Astana is now out of the UCI Pro Tour this means that it's likely/possible that the UCI Pro Tour may invite three additional teams into the Pro Tour fold. Who are the likely teams? Barloworld? Skil-Shimano? any others? Does this mean Slipstream could possibly enter the Pro Tour a year earlier than they were originally planning? In the $cheme of things you know the UCI needs a US team in the tour to keep selling merch and t.v. coverage to the US. It's early yet and there may be other teams/sponsors that decide to fold teams up as well. Your thoughts.
