from My Point Rory Sutherland and Matt Lloyd should have been signed to fill the mountain stage hunter roles/KOM with Weening but

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/suth...thcare-in-2012

and Matt Lloyd is ment to have signed for another team but not announced yet - 1 rumor a french team as he has good points from 2010
the other BMC

Climb GC wise sure - but as a stage hunter KOM guy can climb very well and that would be his role @ Greenedge.

In a team with a GC Guy then he can support and get into breaks to help the team very well as well.

Put him up against the Top GC climber types not great but there are different roles to be filled by different types of climbers

GreenEdge is already failing, so far only 10/18 riders are not inferior foreigners. That's 56% not 75% True Blue, sort it out!

Can't be too many more to announce though? A Kiwi or two (they hardly count as the flag is confusing for El Pistolero ). Can't be more than 3 internationals to come I say. For a squad of 30 that's 63% pure. 67% for 2 more internationals and 70% for only 1 more.

The golden level is 70-80% isn't it?

I don't really care tbh but you would think they would try and nab some of the riders on the market at the moment. Can't miss out on both HTC and ex-RANT riders...

Do you know what's the main business of the Australian distributor of the Scott bikes GreenEdge wil be riding is? Clue, starts with A and ends with the letters vanti.

Avanti are way too small a brand to be a sponsor at the global level.

Just thinking of what GreenEdge's cobbled classics team will be like!

Cooke, Vaitkus, Tuft, O'Grady, Mouris, Langeveld, Goss, Keukeleire and possibly Hayman.

btw, CQ seems to jump the gun with announcing riders as being confirmed to ride a team.

They have Docker and Davis already confirmed to GreenEdge.

Davis confirmed himself by mistake via twitter
