There a tons of football players without goals who get a contract, just like there a hundreds of cyclists without points who get a contract.
If Radioshack was satisfied with him, he would have gotten a contract extension. Radioshack wasn't looking for points; they hired Devolder, for crying out loud.
He's BFF with Bruyneel and De Mol just wants someone for the classics. He's still a little bit annoyed that Boonen left him in 2003 lol.
Will be interesting next year, will Cancellara be screwed by one of his teammates for a change?
Devolder should be a cheap rider by now. And like it or not, he has talent, so he's worth the risk.
Posthuma had an awful year, I only brought him up because Ryo said Jrod was talking about his helpers while in fact he was talking about Posthuma. Subtle difference.
