    Came here to post that link and you beat me to it. RS-Nissan-Trek has the people to get the job done as long as Bruyneel can keep them in line.

    I even waited two hours before i posted ( I have a google news search for "bicycle" and "Tour de France"

    Including Lance the 2011 Radioshack Team had 29.

    Where did Levi Leipheimer end up?

    I would like to see Bruyneel go after everything. Just like they do in stock car racing ( Hee Hee)

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this super team does. Either explosion or implosion is my guess. I wonder if Levi's leaving had anything to do with Chris Honer's Tour of California win?

    Doubt it. Chris and Levi are good friends, professional, and are both California residents to boot. Im betting it had much more to do with available slots, and budget. Levi had probably his best year ever last year. Since he got so many UCI points, he was much more valuable to Quickstep/Omega-Pharma so they offered him more money.

    On the road, they will be competitors, but off it, I still think we will see the friendly banter from these "old" guys

    They're loaded with second rate GC contenders, who can't win a GT thanks to ITTs, and Cancellara, who can't win an ITT anymore thanks to Tony Martin. Not looking good, especially if Cancellara can't come up with tactics for the classics other than "ride of the front and TT to victory".

    It's probably unfair to call Andy "a second rate GC contender"- if someone who can finish 2nd in the Tour for 3 years in a row is 2nd rate, then everyone apart from Contador is. Many DSes would kill for a rider who can do that. And while there are few guys better than Frank, he's still a better GC contender than many teams' first guy. Plus they can actually win smaller races with at least two other riders, it's not bad to have someone who can win Pais Vasco (or Tour of California if your sponsor is American). Don't get me wrong, I think this merger is a marriage between the devil and Voldemort but on paper their perspectives look far from bad.

    Pretty sad though that Bruyneel says Andy most likely won't even bother with Liege since it would interrupt his Tour preparation. Seriously? And they ruled out the Giro with Andy saying "Giro is a nice race but it's not the Tour and never will be". If that's all he can think about, I hope he retires without a GT win (unless he gets it from CAS...). By the way, during team presentation Chris Horner said "Nothing is quite like the Tour but Tour of California is just below it". I almost puked.
