    Tinkov buys team from Riis for 6 million Euro
    Oleg Tinkov is said to be buying Team Saxo-Tinkoff for six million Euros, with Bjarne Riis staying on to run the team for a salary of one million Euros annually, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Tinkov and Riis have called a press conference Monday in London to announce the team's future.
    According to the Italian newspaper, Tinkov will invest from 11 to 13 million Euros per-season into the team. He will own the team but Riis will remain as team manager.
