    ... Rumoured to be joining Riis at whatever Saxo will become.

    This is good news, Riis should be able to put a decent team together to support him.

    Before the tour i would have said if he was going to go anywhere it'd be with Riis, brailsford of bruyneel again.

    Riis... A good fit.
    Brailsford - skys tour was a flop.
    Bruyneel - he's got brajkovic and the very very fast phinney. Phinney has already won the amateur Paris roubaix twice in a row and time trials like a mofo. Will braj progress from the dauphine winner that beat contador to a tour racer that can challenge the spaniard?

    Yeah, sure. Suuuuure. Contador would go back to the team manager who left him at the team hotel without a vehicle to get to the day's time trial? Maybe the new contract could come with enough cab fare for each stage of the TdF.
