    Im not sure how this team is going to work out in the long run, those seem to be all fairly big dollar names with big goals that in no way can be achieved with those teammates.

    So they're gonna have half a dozen second-rate GC contenders, and still no shot at winning sprint stages?

    They do have Bennati, but they don't give him any support.

    Yeah. Even with Farrar and Cav out of the Vuelta, he struggles to get in the top five in sprint stages.

    What about Jens?
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    The rumor mill has Levi headed to Quickstep. Take it for what it's worth, but it's the same rumor mill that said Radioshack and Leopard-Trek were going to merge, and look how that turned out.

    I can absolutely see Levi at QS
    He can win stage races, while the rest of the team keeps on winning one-days and stages
    Plus, he needs a serious change in scenery in order to keep the juices flowing

    I was there in '95 when he won a big amateur stage race in Belgium called the Ronde van Namen
    I'm sure he'll get a kick out of coming full circle

    Must feel like deja vu all over again for Gregory Rast.

    Levi's move has been announced. I don't want to be mean . . . he had a great 2nd-tier tour year . . . but you've got to wonder if he's still got a major tour win in him. That's especially true with a non-tour team like QS-Omega-Pharma-Whoever Else.
