Astana????
Vino seemed interested in them in the dauphine.
But they have nibali going there.
But of course vino will prefer schlecks over nibali.

OPQS maybe too since they can't get contador.

I don't think they 'could'. I think they are forced to..

According to Danish media Astana is a likely destination after Saxo resigned Contador.

Btw remember an article a few weeks backs in relation to the rumours that Schlecks were going Back to Riis and Contador to JB. In an interview JB said he hadnt talked to Contador and as far as he knew the was nothing to the rumours. However, he did imply that the Schlecks might have contacted Riis. Obviously Riis have turned them downed (since he signed Berto) but still interesting that JB implies that the bros might have been talking to Riis.

At least Vino will make Andy a proper rider and force him to ride hard in every race.
It could be fun to see schlecks at astana.
But nibali would be there too

And they seem to have a good relationship too.

The idea of Vino being in charge of the Schlecks does entertain me

Schlecks at Astana would certainly cause a temporary brain meltdown for some users here, including myself

Im pretty sure that Jakob fuglsang will be looking for another team too. Everytime he has been asked If he is looking for another team, he has been unable to refuse. Would like to see him back at Saxo
