The guy is not bad at all, the main problem with almost all of the euskatel team is that their performances were so erratic that it was a gamble due to lack of consistency. Hope works out because every year BMC becomes a strong team in medals and tittles but not in performances. The good news is that Sanchez can climb a lot. Wish him luck.
IMO what the team needs is to find another "Big George," w/o a guy like that no matter how many world champions you have, probably the team will succumb to egos you know. "Too many crackers, tiny little noise."
