What's going on with them. No program yet? sure are running light on the palmares this season so far. JB's whining about "trolls", wonder how bad it's going to get once they do win a race or two.

Well they are not doing awful, getting riders in good places on classifications but not really winning. They had Cancellara's multiple problems, and their spring campaign was obviously not going to work then because he was the only leader. Bennati has become famous for never winning etc. Horner's chances are sabotaged by the apparent depreciation of his TT skills. Jens could have won a stage, lost it in the sprint. Some of the youngsters seem to have problems adapting maybe (Sergent). Fuglsang crashed. And the rest are so GT-oriented (the brothers for example) that they are not a factor yet.

All in all they are far from the levels of fail of some other teams.

Alas you never know. Come July Andy will be winning time trials.
Yeah, Pinhead Pat's a bit ****y with JB right about now due to the break away league thing. I can imagine that he's not going to let the guys juice up.

It will be interesting in July. Andy Pandy will go from not even finishing races to placing in the TTs! Honestly, the only performer thus far (for stage races) is Horner.

If this team suddenly starts destroying the field, then this thread will make more sense.

Till July ...
