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 :p)!

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! :D

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.

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

No no, you don't understand it, Vino's awesomness is better than Frandy's lameness. Vino will force them to do descend Monte Crostis on a TT bike everytime Frandy doesn't attack more than 5km from the finish on a MTF.

Unfortunately, for Astana it would be a good marketing ploy among the casual fans if they had the Shrek brothers... (puking)

No ****. When someone mentioned Katusha as a team they could go to, I immediately thought of 2 pairs of bibs and 3 shirts I'd have to throw out

Just wait, very soon they will realize that Menchov is done and they already know Purito cant win GT ... therefore Schlechkovich bros are perfect fit for Katusha :eek:

Yeah, could be good for them both. Fuglsang could be the Captain in one of the stage races in the spring, ride as a lieutenant/captain in the ardennes, help contador in the tour and Maybe in the vuelta and then ride the worlds and Maybe lombardia.
And when Riis manages to unfold some of fulgsangs potential, he will be a great domestique for contador too :)

Personally I believe they will go to Champion System, Andy already had a meeting with Chinese investors a couple of months ago
