Tinkov seems to be a man of his words.

Said that he will build a super team like SKY and completes his roster by signing SkY's road captain

Respect for that!

He wants to dismantle the 2012 train of UK postal by taking one of the base wagons of the Wiggo/Froome train.

Hey Hitch.. They didn't really "arrest" Roger they enlisted him instead. There may be thousands who can replace him on the SKY line, but Saxo still get him, his talent, and his inside knowledge of their opponent. The DEA should try hiring some of the cartel middle men and see if that help us get the thousands who might replace them. (just joking )

I doubt that, since he was not part of the team building on Gran Canaria.

Contador isnt even going to face wiggins. The year youd want to have something against the sky train was 2012. Froome aint gonna role that way, not entirely anyway.

Maybe that was a part of the tactic from Saxo-Tinkoff playing cat and mouse with Sky.
But only UCI, Rogers and Riis know for sure :-)
