the lure of large GBP contracts and Sky's teat, will be too difficult to resist imo.

The lesson these guys learned from Armstrong is don't be too greedy and don't push your luck.

It will be interesting to see which race Porte and Rogers ride.

I also agree with BMW. Lance never won an Olympic TT gold

One thing Wiggins has in common with Armstrong, neither one can resist the temptation to say something stupid when the smart move is to be quiet.
