wondering when will we see another USA based world tour team? I can't see it happening in next few years unless TJVG can podium ToF, even with that he will just be a happy BMC team leader. After LA scandal, most USA sponsors will keep a distance from cycling. Well I guess you can count BMC as a half American team, I think BMC is actually registered in America.

The USA is a good place to base a company (including a cycling team) due to its business friendly climate. I often wondered if that is the reason BMC is based in the USA.

No, there won't be a big public presentation in Lux like the two previous years.

The 2013 team presentation will be held during their next training camp starting next week in Spain (as far as I remember).
Run (for media) like for most other teams.

I don't think so from all I've read so far. It seems like they will do a day for the press in Benidorm (Spain) on 18th of January
