And then, how does the rest of this year transpire? I'm assuming that we've seen the last of Lance for the year. Do Johan and his riders immediately quit? His (Johan's) contract contained a clause that he didn't have to accept Vino as a rider, didn't it? If the Kazak's break that clause, does he have the option of walking with his contracted riders? Who exactly is signed to Johan as opposed to Astana?

Just wondering if we'll see Johan and his riders at all, for the rest of 2009. Or will it be, power down reboot for 2010?
