Phinney To Join Armstrong!

Taylor Phinney is joining Armstrong's U-23 team and leaving Garmin-Chipotle.

Armstrong is also starting an anti-doping program similar to Vaughter's.

Full details here.

I hope its what Taylor wants to do and not just what his Daddy (Large Trek Dealer) wants him to do.

It seems like they have such a good thing going with the Garmin/Chipotle development squads and I am sad to see it breaking up.

Just another shot in the back to Vaughters by Lance.

Another strong US U23 development team is a great thing, assuming Garmin/Chipotle keeps its development squad going.

Well, this also means that Lance is starting his own team for the Tour and not going to join Astana, right?

I wonder if he'll be invited, heh.
