sounds like a good idea to me. Instead of having to split my hatred in two directions I can now aim it all firmly at just one team again.

Shleck getting some race smarts into him from the old dudes and also some ITT skills by Bruyneel, Levi and Kloden. He also has to win the ToC before he can be guaranteed leadership status at the TDF.

Makes sense, both economically and from a sporting perspective.

Anyway the priority of the Schlecks should be to separate into different teams. I do not like Bruynnel, RS, and the Schlecks, so it would be good for me

Great move for the Schlecks.
The consistent crapness will become a thing of the past and they will immediately find 5 minutes, once they are under Johan's..................er............wing.
