Wiggins will be out of shape and lacking motivation, Froome will be overmatched facing a hungry Contador who will be bringing the pain and Purito will hopefully maintain his senses and sign with some other team.

I doubt Sky could offer Purito the thing required for him to join Sky, (the race leadership, not the money) if they did I am sure he would jump at the chance.

I am not sure Sky would want another leader to, for me they primarily want to develop you British talent, and he would just close doors to this, the type of riders Sky want are road leaders who can pass on experience and young talent

2012's best rider and second best team now in the 2nd division.

Rules are gone. UCI members' personal opinions decide the World Tour teams?

And Argos-Shimano.... as sponsor of UCI - of course they would be selected. I'm sure UCI got a great Christmas gift from Shimano?

Cycling is screwed - we have to do something.

our only hope is that cobra di formigine will be cleared by cas and he will go head to head against mcquaid and lemond at the next uci elections

Purito will wait until Dec. 19, and then he will make a decision. He had some good offers but wants to remain with KAT. He's been getting along well with Eki.
