Floyd Landis didn't break the top 10 at Redlands. Got 20th in the TT @34seconds. Bahati dropped and DNF'd on first stage. Flying V in the lead. For a country of 20 million(way smaller than California) how can Australia keeping handing us our *** in US cycling?

Lampre are now officially a ProTour team....

.....

....or ARE THEY?

Of course they are, but it would be pretty funny if it turned out to be the UCI playing a prank on Lampre (which is of course impossible)

Last year it was reported that Fuglsang had signed for a few more years with Riis, now it turns out that nothing was confirmed on paper, and Fuglsang is not satisfied with the offer he has received from Saxo. He mentions that there are other teams who are interested in him. Riis thinks he's slightly overestimating himself:

A new contract with Riis is not going to be much use if Riis does not have a new sponsor for next season. Do any of our Danish friends have any rumours if any new sponsors are being lined up?

Mr Fuglsang would be more than welcome to help cadel at bmc and help him win the tour next year so he can get back to back!:D

I have it on good authority that it's always been Fuglsang's dream to help Cadel Evans win the Tour.

They have LuxAir. But it is only a small sponsor.

The team says they're talking to a potential Danish sponsor, but no names have been named save as pure speculation and there's no real confirmation.

I doubt anybody is happy there. Gilbert will be hoping to do something this weekend. Gent was a big embarrassment for them.

He's stepping up as we speak, in Pais Vasco. He was strong in the first stage, and he'll probably be able to finish top-10 today.
