Ok GT team speculation if Saxo get WT/wild card.

Giro will be Majka and N Sorensen I think that rules them out for le Tour, I think also Bennati, maybe he will do Giro-Vuelta double?

Alberto, Kreuziger and Roche and of course Jesus and Benja methinks. Then maybe Paulinho and Morkov (and CAS?) and I hope Breschel

and then maybe Alberto in vuelta (?) with Majka as support, otherwise Kreuziger gets the chance I think.

Haha, I just went and Google: 'How much does Alberto Contador earn' and the first web page answer (as net worth) was $15 Million but I don't know how accurate it is, still I believe before the ban he made about 5 million. In the same web page I looked up BW and his net worth was of $3 Million

Net worth isn't salary I think

Astana offered him a four year contract in 2009 worth 8 million a year but Alberto refused because he didn't want a four year contract. His salary at that point was 4.5 million per year

No, I believe you are right, it isn't. But it was mostly to highlight Contador's income or wealth (I think) though like I said before, its probably not even an accurate number, therefore not meaning much Sorry if I mislead anyone, just wanted to throw this "fun statistic" out there

Net worth is actually an estimate of what they have in total, not annual salary

Yea but I do believe he has a bit more than that, it is "only" 10 million euros

that number is imo far from being accurate he prolly made that in 08 and 09 alone, add sponsors and investments and he his very likely worth twice or more then that and could be worth twice as much as what he is prolly worth if not for the doping ban.

he lost a 25 mil over 5 years deal with armani thanks to that just as an example of he lost with his ban
