At least he's still :grope:.

The other day Renshaw tweeted that he and Cav were skyping about next season. I was highly amused because in my mind, this is exactly how their relationship goes. Apparently Cav wants it to be just like 2009.

Top race official Jean-Francois Pescheux said after the race: "Renshaw was declassified immediately but we have decided to also throw him off the race. We've only seen the pictures once, but his actions are plain for all to see. This is a bike race, not a gladiator's arena."


Hmmmm.....(thinking of clever "Spartacus" pun)

Interesting article about the negotiations between Saxo and Rasmussen. (http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/11/news/michael-rasmussen-stung-by-saxo-bank-snub_151334?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter)

ETA: Poor Thor, life at Garmin-Cervelo may be a little different than what he's used to - at least based on this tweet from Zabriskie:


Going to miss the Pinkfloyd concert tomorrow...wonder if my roomate Thor is up for a deep dark Wall session... :lol:

Maybe that's why everybody on Saxo bailed. Team Luxembourg will probably have a nice tropical spa camp.

Wheee, Cipo trash talking for no apparent reason (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cipollini-decries-modern-cyclings-lack-of-machismo?ns_campaign=news&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_sourc e=cyclingnews&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0). :lol:


Nor did Alberto Contador escape Cipollini’s criticism. “Machismo is disappearing, I can’t find it in Contador,” he complained. “Contador has the anonymous face of a surveyor or an accountant.”

Cav sizes up the competition (http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/12/news/mark-cavendish-sizes-up-the-competition-for-2011_152387?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter), but is remarkably circumspect about Greipel

I was worried that it didn't seem like Cav was going to say anything like "Who is Tyler Farrar? I only know the names of people who have won TDF stages." but luckily he came through with "Hopefully Garmin will start to ride now."

I remember getting the impression that Thor was hoping not to be doing the big stage races much any more. But I could could be misremembering.

Team Leopard (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/luxembourg-team-to-be-called-team-leopard?ns_campaign=news&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_source =cyclingnews&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0)? Why are they going for a classic look, I want to see Fabian in leopard print!! :mitchell:

Meanwhile the new Aussie team Pegasus (http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/6703/Pegasus-Sports-fighting-to-get-back-on-track-after-loss-of-big-backer.aspx)is looking for sponsors and I fear that 25 riders will be looking for jobs soon.
