I don't get this invitation argument. Saxo will get invitations to any event Contador's interested in as well should they not make the cut.

same for argos with degenkolb and kittel, the thing is if argos is WT there are some very important races where no1 on their roster can perform at any decent level which isn't the case of saxo.

doesn't matter how much you dislike riis and contador, against cold hard facts you can't do anything. argos may get the wt spot but doesn't mean they are the better team for it.

The hardest fact for all of us is that UCI ranked Argos' "sporting value" higher than Saxo's.

"Or we would prefer, see Samuel [Sánchez ] in the Tour of Portugal instead of the Tour de France?"

The thruth is that he can only win one, and it's not the one throw France. My point is: I'm an official Euskaltel hater now

Hate the rules, not the people following them.
