However they indeed improved. Should get most wins next year by a margin with Cav on the team. I am looking forward to Serry riding Ardennes a lot too.
Uhm, that's why they bought Cavendish.

That's what I thought too. Since Nibali was the only real GC contender up for grabs it was a smart signing.

He said they lost Levi, so I suspect he meant GC in GT's.

But I do agree, Cav is a very good buy for them, with him they can get wins throughout the entire season.

Ofc its an entirely different team in 2013 than this year, no matter what he did it couldnīt get worse.
Whoa calm down buddy!!! It just sounded like you weren't happy with the team or it's budget. That's why I pointed out that it will be MUCH stronger next year

If I knew all you were worried about was Rasmussen I would have said so.

I know what he meant, but with Cavendish you have the potential to win a lot of stages. I don't know of a lot of good GC contenders that were available this year. Nibali is one, but he was never going to sign for OPQS and Cav's probably a better investment.

Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank change their name to Team Saxo-Tinkoff

New name: Team Saxo-Tinkoff

[20.11 16:28] With immediate effect, Riis Cycling and its two Co-Title sponsors, Saxo Bank and Tinkoff Bank, have agreed to change the name of the cycling team to "Team Saxo-Tinkoff."

Since Russian company Tinkoff Bank came onboard prior to the Tour de France 2012, the name of the team had been Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank. Going forward the new name will be Team Saxo-Tinkoff.
I hope next year's jersey looks like the new logo Crotch eagle 2.0

I'd wish they would go back to the '11 jersey. By far the best of the Saxo jerseys
