    I have no idea how BMC is going to handle all of their riders at this point!

    Some amazing pics from Vuelta's Sunday stage up Angliru

    Lots of rumors of Radio Shack and Leopard Trek merging - but it appears negotiations are ongoing and nothing is settled.

    Apparently the Leopard-Shack merger is official:

    http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/leop...ith-radioshack

    "RadioShack-Nissan-Trek Professional Cycling Team" is quite a long name. I wonder if they'll just go by Radioshack.

    Time trial world champion Fabian Cancellara as well as Andy and Fränk Schleck will continue to lead the team in its plans for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. While the complete roster has not been announced, they will be joined by Amgen Tour of California champion Chris Horner, two-time Tour de France runner-up Andreas Klöden, and national champions Matthew Busche, Jani Brajkovic and Nelson Oliveira from RadioShack as well as Robert Wagner from Leopard Trek. The team will continue to be based in Luxembourg.
    No JENS?!?!

    I'm sure they'd want Jens! but maybe Jens isn't sure about this new team. I wonder if Bruyneel will be involved with management?

    Andy, Frank, Chris Horner, Andreas Kloden, and Jani Brajkovic?

    That sounds like a cooperation nightmare waiting to happen!

    Is it wrong of me to hope Conta gets off his drug charge? The idea that Bruyneel will manage Andy and Riis will manage Bert in the TdF is so ironically compelling that I want to see it happen.

    Funny parody of Johan's first memo to Frank and Andy - except a lot of it sounds like pretty good advice.

    Jens! signs with RaNT for next year (yay!)

    Jeannie Longo facing 2 year suspension for missed doping controls. This could be the end of her long career.

    And the Vuelta wraps up this weekend - with the two leaders only 13 seconds apart, tomorrow could be fun.

    Now Longo's husband facing charges over claims he purchased EPO. Supposedly the info came out as part of the Joe Papp investigation.

    And the world championships are showing on my tivo so they seem real now.

    I don't want to spoil the elite men's ITT in case anyone is planning to watch it tonight on Universal (so I'll put the result in a linked picture). Congrats to the World Champion

    And Richmond, Virginia gets the 2015 Worlds after Oman withdraws its bid.

    Now that it's aired in the US, I'm going to feel free to celebrate.


    TONY! What the h*ll was that? Can't wait to see him riding time trials in rainbow!


    Sad for Spartacus, though. What a rough day for him!

    SPOILER FROM THE WOMEN'S ROAD RACE The pain of getting the silver for the 5th straight year

    And at this tweet from David Millar who is rooming with Cav at worlds:

    Watching documentary on ancient Egypt. @MarkCavendish pleased to learn he'd be considered tall 4000yrs ago, but now angered with evolution.

    Congrats to the new World Champion

    Looking good in stripes

    I wonder if Goss could have pulled off the upset if Renshaw had been picked for the team and was there as a leadout for him? And what about Fabian losing third in a photo finish on a real sprinters' finish - very impressive.

    Looks like Team GB enjoyed celebrating the Worlds win:

    Jeremy Hunt on the flight home

    Tweet from Millar: "Oh. My. God. I think a pig has shit in my head."

    And from Wiggins: "Balls! Sore head missed my flight”

    Geraint Thomas tweet: "Passionate fans at the airport!! Stannard just got kissed... By a bloke"

    FINALLY got to watch the race and ! I can't even stop smiling, I'm so excited to see him wearing rainbow all year! : Loved seeing Goss and Cav celebrate together. I still can't believe that Australia left Renshaw of the team for a sprint finish.

    I can't believe that HTC could very well have had both the Time Trial and Road Race World Champions this year and they couldn't find a sponsor.

    I though the same thing (and not to mention the silver medalist as well!). It's sad to see such a powerful team disbanded. Although, I'm interested in seeing what it'll be like if Renshaw and Cavendish separate.

    Is it safe to assume that the Manx Missile is going to Sky?
    Sometimes I think I lost something really important to me, and it turns out I already ate it.

    That seems to be the prevailing opinion. In any event, he and Renshaw will separate since Mark Renshaw has signed with Rabobank. Poor Cav, he'll have to stare at someone else butt for weeks on end. I doubt it will be nearly as exciting.
