Looks like Fränk is already training for the Vuelta, he posted a picture from Granada on twitter, saying he was training there. Best of luck - this week is supposed to be a very hot one. I assume he is reconnoitring some passages of stages 9 and 10? RSLT Vuelta line-up has the potential to be very good - both Schlecks, Horner and Cancellara all seem very likely. But then again their teams are often good on paper but suck on the road.

Devolder meanwhile has told Het Nieuwsblad that he was surprised of his non-selection for the Tour. The team had more or less told him it was a done deal apparently. His wife had already booked a hotel room in Nice, so now they will still go, just as tourists. He lost his spot to Laurent Didier. I assume he really lost it because of Cancellara, he must want him by his side later in the season.

Contador and Kreuziger are going to end very close to the winner every stage to Paris. And the 3rd rider could be Roche, Rogers or even Hernandez.

Face to face they can't win the team classification. Unless they go by breaks...

Becca limiting the teams budget for the remainder of the season, so they won't be able to compete in some races.
As a result the team will compete in the remaining WorldTour events; the in-progress Vuelta a España, plus the GP Ouest France in Plouay (September 1st), the GP Cycliste de Québec, the GP Cycliste de Montréal (September 13th and 15th respectively), Il Lombardia (October 6th) and the Tour of Beijing (Oct 11th – 15th).

Another classy move.
"I was excited to pass Rui Costa in front of me. I never thought that would be possible in my life."
Tour de France almost-winner, Andy Schleck acknowledges Rui Costa's awesomeness.

"58x11. I do not often use it, but when you need it, it is always there."
Why the hell would you need that Tony?

Yes you are correct

Further more the top ten TTT ProTeams get points towards their rankings so this event would be important for low ranked teams.

yea, the whole thing has been a disaster. No "winners" emerging.

However the likes of Gallopin, Nizzolo, Jungels etc have gotten some experience to move forward.

They do seem to finally have found their stride this season though, which is very good to see. Hopefully they will be able to carry it over to the new Trek team. And they'll definitely be better off and in a better position once their done with Becca.

It's good that they are investing in some talented young guys for the new team as well.

I'm surprised at how many neo pro's they are taking on. They are all very interesting riders but we must be realistic - they will most likely not get many results.

I don't think the young guys will be under too much pressure for results. The experienced guys should get enough. If Horner stays, and the Schlecks refind something of their former selves this is looking like a well balanced team in terms of classics, stage races, youth and experience(lol voight, horner(if he signs)). Maybe just looking for a stronger sprinter.

Nizzolo has the potential to win big races - not against Cavendish, Kittel and Greipel on a normal day, but still - and I hope that they will give him more support next year. This year he had Hondo who is a beast but he will not get a new contract. Next year they have a lot of fast men with Felline, Alafaci, Silvestre, Stuyven, possibly the Van Poppels... it could be a real force in smaller races

I agree with this, that's why I said they are looking for a "stronger" sprinter. Off the top of my head, Viviani, Demare, Bouhanni, Degenkolb, Kristoff...actually probably not Demare.
