I've heard nothing so far. I wonder if they have the balls to try him out in the Tour (with the risk of him not finishing after the first mountains)

The Tour would be a mistake I think, he would get killed in those hectic and fast finales. Then again, the Giro has barely 2 or 3 stages that would suit him. The Vuelta is probably the best bet?

Last year they brought Renshaw, they might as well bring Bos.

Well then you might as well go for broke and re-hire Hans Dekkers to be the main sprinter :o

Honestly I don't think Renshaw is much faster than Brown. I really don't know what they see in him, other than a leadout which he doesn't want to be.

Maybe, although none of the guys currently at the team had anything to do with signing him. They didn't even know about it until after the fact.
