As ever with anything to do with Sky, 2 possible explanations (at least!)

#1 Poor recovery from head injury; not wishing to travel so much etc

#2 Moving to track away from road provides more protection for News International if the rumours of drug taking in the 80's turn into allegations

Believe what you like!

Yep Sutton is Britain/Australia's Valverde. Placing highly in such races as the Norwich Spring Classic, Sealink International and the Mazda Alpine tour. Questions need to be answered.

SKY is just making some room for Greg Lemond to come aboard.
There are still a lot of details to be worked out though.

Man, I really wish Sky would hire Greg Lemond is some capacity.
Any capacity. Even for a couple of days. "

Are you sure you don't know Sean or Shane personally ?

Does Greg know about Sutton's past or that of Rob Hayles, or was that kept from him during the negotiations ?
