If Nibali goes to BMC i'll be the full on anti-supporter once again

If he goes to the team of brute heroes Astana (except kreuziger the loser), then that's fine with me, he'd belong there.

I agree - he won't find a better family atmos' elsewhere - and big brother Basso is moving over - and all the young ragazzi would be at his service at Liquigas. What's a few MEuro more really worth.

He could become a squalo out of water.

Sad if he goes to BMC or Astana.

Should go to another team that actually needs a GC rider or just a high quality rider.

If BMC, does it mean Evans to GreenEDGE?

If Astana, does it mean Vino finally retire?

Not a mystery to me: ASTANA is the proper team for Vincenzo-there is the clear need for a worthy GC rider & the help is there for his entire disposal.
BMC is still figuring out who's going to ride for who, when & where.

Nibali to ASTANA

If I were Nibali I'd choose the one team with the best reputation.
