This is quickly turning into a clinic-related discussion so I'll get my word in before this all gets moved ... IMO Andersen's however many positive tests just show that he was really, really stupid about it... and there was some controversy about some of them as has been pointed out, though I don't remember the exact story.

So anyways even though he was the first to be honoured with a lifetime ban, in my book he is still a big step up from Bruyneel and even from Riis ...

But I also agree that he does not seem fit for the general manager position, he should stick with DS'ing and leave the rest to someone else

I agree with that albeit the reason for that is he's incapable of just about anything and especially a leading role

Any news on what happens to the team in 2013, with Radioshack pulling sponsorship?

Since yesterday RSNT is on their first camp of the season in Clervaux (Luxembourg). Fränk Schleck also participates. They apparently have also signed a new DS: Josu Larrazabal, former Euskaltel.

Another camp will be in Spain, from the 10th to the 18th of December

Also confirmation that Devolder and Hondo are present, and that Gerdemann is no longer part of the team

So Gerdemann, Fugslang and Posthuma are out and Kiserlovski is the Giro man. If Frank is banned Andy still has a good team but nothing special and very freak characters as helpers (Kloden, Horner etc). However Fabian can lead a very nice team at the classics.


It's clear to me tha team has changed his focus to Fabian a more reliable leader than Andy.

Horner was a monster in last years Tour though. If he can get somewhere near that level again he can be a great helper IMO. There are also Zubeldia and Monfort, so IMO it would still be a pretty good team.

I agree that Cancellara's squad also looks nice

Kiserlovski will give us some nice moments in the next Giro D'Italia. I think he'll be able to do the GC and achieve stage win through breakways. Expect big things from him in spite of there will be too climbers like Pellizzoti, Rujano, the local fighters Sella, Brambilla or Rabottini and maybe the colombians.

Looking at the way in which he has directed Andy, I don't think Andersen is a good choice.
