    This thread is for the Rider transfers.

    So far reports coming out of Columbia is that Bernard Eisel is looking to go back to FDJ.

    Pozzato has signed with Katusha

    Also, I have heard word from a source that a few teams are interested in Patrik Sinkewitz whose race ban has been ended. Astana and Katusha aswell as Rock and Milram and believe it or not, Columbia are thinking about him. Bob hinted it many months ago that if he is prepared to do the right thing, they will consider taking him back. But there is still a lot of water to go under the bridge. So the other 3 teams are front runners. Milram, however, with the pending retirement of Erik Zabel are also looking at Patrik as a German who confessed using ban substances and want to enhance their German reputation by giving another German a second chance. With Gerolsteiner leaving the sport and Columbia now a US team, Milram wants to enhance cycling in Germany and they believe this is the way of doing it. They have also been in contact with Jaksche but Jaksche has had enough of the sport. Watch this story very closely.

    Thats awesome. Chavanel is a little bit of legend in my book. Without having to ride 200 French races a year the guy will be very good. He was crying after winning the stage yesterday.

    Other transfers: Stegmans to the new Tinkoff.

    To race in France was very good for his sponsor, that was the ground of his good salary.

    Former teammate Mayo loses CAS case, he is from a country that frankly is in a shit storm of doping scandals, and he is going to be riding for who? Just seems funny.

    Who wants to bet that next year Zubeldia amazingly "re-discovers" his top-5 Tour form?

    Brunyeel is an amazing man motivator, that's all, you cynic. :D He just scares his riders up the training climbs by making his wife ride behind them on a scooter.

    Within the team... they call this Eva-pacing. Your life may be in danger Rolfy for letting this secret out.

    Cavendish has a new lead out man in Renshaw.

    Rogers is staying with Columbia - so is Hansen.

    Ciolek will be on the move if the right deal comes up for him which will be good because Cavendish will finally have competition.
