I would be all for the Schlecks to Astana! Vino AND Nibali could teach them a thing or two (like how to go downhill, perhaps )!

Of course, right now, just getting off the Titanic is the main priority for the Schlecks. They'll go to anyone who will take them.

That would be good for him. He deserves a leadership role!
Of course, he'd probably get there and then have Alberto go for the triple!

He'd get plenty of opportunities at Saxo. And he could learn a thing or two from Alberto.

Why is everyone around here assuming that the Schlecks would go to Astana? There are other teams that would make room for them.

How about?

Vacon?
Rabo?
Argos?
GreenEdge?
Ag2R?

or even Katusha, Garmin or Leakygas

after all Astana was involved with the Hog too ...

Rabo wont make room, that would be throwing Mollema, Kruijswijk & Gesink, all youth products, away. Not going to happen.

I would love to see the Schleck's (and Cancellara too, for that matter) move to Garmin.

OR should they go to two different teams, maybe. They are brothers, not siamesic twins.

Sclecks to OPQS if they had problems with Bruyneel i guess they will have them with Lefevere as well, see end them at Greenedge or BMC...

Shh, don't cry, don't worry, Vino wants real bike riders, not prima donnas on bikes
