    I was thinking recently about Tinkoff signing/talking/offering deals with a bunch of these big name riders. What was the last team to do that? To try and have a bunch of leaders? Oh yeah. T-Mobile, and where did it leave them? Does anyone else have an interesting feeling about this new team? I do

    It's not a new team.

    I am also so excited about this new team. What new methods and drugs will they discover on their addled rampage across the Pro-Continental circuit?! All they need is a Basso/Ullrich double-headed Tour team. Just think, they could room together so the doc would only have to sneak blood bags into one room in the dead of night. Why do cycling fans have to be blind idiots? If I wanted to detach my brain before watching my sport I'd stick to soccer. Tyler Hamilton needs a second chance like Pantani (god rest his soul) needs more coke.

    No just more money and a new license (the license of Swiss LPR team). The old Tinkoff team is not a pro continental team like LPR but a continental team (the old GS3 license). They also have a website:
