Mentioned a few days ago about Sky training with a Saxo bloke and people thought it was Johnny Bellis - now i look at his face it was Porte...heard nowt about Svitsov but Sky are getting rid of 11 and only signed 4 so far.

If as expected they sign Cav, I wonder what the timing of that might be? Day after the TOB ends? On the plus side, everyone is in London, on the minus side, it could distract from the Worlds. So after Copenhagen, then? Come to think of it, would make sense from Cav's point of view not to sign anything till after that, and if he's won the rainbow jersey, slap on another x% to his salary  3

Should go for Taaramae, probably one of the best up and coming kids on the block IMHO.  39

He's still under contract, the others they are signing aren't, think that tells you something, they are not going to fork out for riders

Either that or they are respecting other teams and not trying to unsettle their riders ?
