Looks like he spoke out of turn... in the end the team will decide, it seems.

No Cancellara at Omloop again. Shame. Radioshack not even invited. Given they've got Devolder as well I'd assume the team said not interested rather than the race snubbing them (and having FDJ there for example), but maybe I'm wrong.

this exactly. he's f;n annoyed by them and that is pretty clear by now, he bascially hates all the management in the team as well and he's been trying to get out of the team since 2011. cancellara will only ride for cancellara in 2013

what is ironic about cancellara's situation is that in 2010 after his stellar spring campaign riis offered him a new contract and told him he would build the entire saxo bank team around him because the schlecks were he leaving, and cancellara refused so he could stay on the same team as his buddies.

is it more because of bruyneel than it is of the schlecks that he wanted to leave at the end of last season? He wasn't getting paid and bruyneel's involvement in the lance armstrong affair.

And he paid for his treachery by missing out on a monument win in the last two years. Saxo won a bonus with Nuyens.

karma is a *****.

If only Baden Cooke won P-R out of that big breakaway instead of Van Summeren

I;m sure he got paid or he could've just left the team.
