Team Sky

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/oth...Cavendish.html

So...more transfer rumors.

Cavendish: Will want a good train, and possibly Mark Renshaw to come with him. Thing is Renshaw might want to take the chance to headline Columbia himself now. Cav has to consider this carefully: can Sky provide him with the perfect train?

Wiggins: Clearly a yes for him. Britain's #1 rider leading a British team. Nuff said.

Issue: Is cycling splitting along national lines? Caisse (Spain), TRS (US), Sky (British)

It's always been somewhat split. FDJ has typically had more French riders. Caisse has trypically had more spanish riders. Euskatel has all Basque riders.

Nothing new here.

Liquigas is heavily Italian. Rabobank (supposedly) the low countries. Katusha Ruskies. Astana Khazaks
