    Will there be a US based team next season?

    With the end of the Discovery Channel sponsorship, will there be another US based team next year? And now that Levi and Contador have moved on, anyone know what will become of Hincapie? I haven't heard anything yet.

    Slipstream will

    probably get an invite. They should be there since they signed some big names and the ASO will like their anti-doping stance. I'll bet they have already been promised a place.

    I believe Hincapie signed with T-mobile.

    Yes, Hincapie is with T-mobile.

    Team Slipstream is US based and they are planning on running the whole UCI Pro Tour next year along with hopeful wildcard entries to the three grand tours. They have some real good time trialist in Dave Zabriskie, David Millar, and Danny Pate, but they have also solid all-around riders in Christian Vandevelde, Magnus Bäckstedt, Tom Danielson, and Will Frishkorn. I'm real eager to see how they do next year.
