Yup, assuming that Kruopis wasn't lying when he was quoted as saying he'll be with GreenEdge next year. There's still some doubt over whether or not Tekle will count as a neo-pro next year (might be too old). If he doesn't count then the final two spots have to be filled with neo-pro's. Hepburn and Durbridge most likely.

official launch: a bit late? usually the teams launch happen before the first race
I mean, when will the team kit and riders be officially presented?

european base: i know it's Varese, and it's a bit cold for a training camp in January (what about valencia or mallorca?)

We've been told jersey's will be embargoed till the Friday night launch. SA shops will get them to retail on the Saturday morning with Santini organising everything themselves.

Why would he lie? Very strange if he did.
Teklehaimanot is too old under the rule quoted in this thread, I don't think there is any doubt about that.

Obviously I don't believe he was lying, it was just my way of expressing that he's as good as confirmed to be with GreenEdge next year.

It's a disgrace if those kangaroos will get the ProTour license without any demonstration of their abilities as a team. Yes, I know the rules and conventions by which those licenses are appropriated and they are disgraceful aswell.

If they are world tour, I estimate 10 wins in world tour events. That seems enough to be worthy of world tour status.
