Langeveld is more than good enough to lead in the cobbled classics.

As much as I like Langeveld, I think he would fit better as a co-leader than the only team leader.

Libertine Seguros wil dislike GE even more after this as his 'fears' will be confirmed.

I did not suggest that, or imply it in any way. Thank you.

What i said was, after the pegasus situation, where they had no sponsor, after the astana sponsor situation where apparently riders werent getting paid, and after the leopard situation where they had no sponsor and ended up taking another teams sponsor, that the auditors, deloitte, may not take such a relaxed attitude with privately funded teams as they had in the past.

I nowhere suggested that GE was a shakey operation like Pegasus.

You have either misunderstood what I was saying (and were the only one who misunderstood) or you have deliberately mis read.

Pegasus did have a sponsor, who pulled out, thus why they weren't awarded a license.

If it was privately funded it would be up and running.

Yeah, but wasn't the sponsor conditional on the achievement of WT status? Surely this, in itself would be seen almost as blackmail by the auditors..?

That video says 'Uploaded by 618PRODUCTIONS1 on 3 Mar 2011'

It was uploaded 7 months ago and mentions riders who have now joined the team, but were racing with other teams then. Isn't that a bit fishy/weird?

They've been on the case for 20 years, so surely they have covered all potential outcomes.
