This rumor has been going around since the Tour and is again picking up steam.
Nygaard out. Johan in. Becca not happy that a marketing guy like Nygaard cannot get a title sponser

So the Shack remain committed, as title sponsor? Trek consolidating into one team, and Becca filling up the tank if required?

(If this were to happen)

So Andy wants to be Americas next darling with his own private jet. Selling his soul to Johan Bruyneel. Disgusting.

No one is going to be Americas next darling by riding a bike, especially no foreigner and I don't quite see why he has to hook up with brunyeel to have a private jet.

Maybe he just received a good offer and didnt refuse?

Well, this would be enough to push me definitively over to Contador's side for the next Tour.

Andy is going to have to find a new team, he is too young to be a Radioshack GT contender.

sounds like a good idea to me. Instead of having to split my hatred in two directions I can now aim it all firmly at just one team again. :D

Shleck getting some race smarts into him from the old dudes and also some ITT skills by Bruyneel, Levi and Kloden. He also has to win the ToC before he can be guaranteed leadership status at the TDF.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

Could be a good thing for andy shleck in his quest to win TDF.

Makes sense, both economically and from a sporting perspective.

Anyway the priority of the Schlecks should be to separate into different teams. I do not like Bruynnel, RS, and the Schlecks, so it would be good for me
