Saxo Bank

Ended their relationship with Tinkhoff. Danish bank and with Riis out of the picture, it makes sense. Of course the bombastic Tinkhoff had things to say, something about "real money"...so Oleg will be funding it himself.

Tinkhoff and Mike Sinyard make quite a pair.

Tinkoff is such an a-hole. I really wish Sagan wasn't on his team.

I wish he was back with his old team...but money talks. Oleg believes, I think, that negative reinforcement is motivating.

I'm guessing they either get along famously or you could sell tickets to their meetings
