team musical chairs

With the demise of HTC and condolidation of RS/leopard, seems that there are bound to be a high number of riders that get left without a protour team contract at end of this year. This might be somewhat offset by emergance of greenedge and possible status upgrade of a continental teams like GEOX but any continental team likely will bring up most of thier own existing rides (like Cobo and Sastre). Seems like quickstep, Sky and BMC have both been on binges acquiring riders for next year. I am curious to know if any notable 2011 riders are likely to get left out in the cold without a 2012 contract.

One good interview along these lines regarding Sky's Russell Downing today at;
