Unlikely, Cadel's not that into selfpromoting full stop, whether via Twitter or website. To his credit (in my books anyway).

what he does do, that i don't like, is constantly sound like he is making excuses for his performance

Wow. Harsh. The guy just rode 4 consecutive GT's: wins le Tour, 3rd in the Vuelta, 3rd (now) in the Giro... and one bad showing means the end of his GC days? I wouldn't write Carlos off yet.

Same with Cadel... 2nd at 2008 tdf, 4th at 2007 Vuelta, 2nd at 2007 tdf. Same with Menchov as well. Thsoe guys will come back stronger than ever i believe

Cadel would be an excellent addition to Garmin's tour team if it is a supporting roll or as the team leader. Wish him the best.

Still wants TDF, and should. If armstrong is anything to go by he has another 4 years at least to try. So much for being past it.
As for the team I doubt he will want to share leadership but want the backing of a strong team.
Katusha, want a GC contender, noone to split duties with or upset and on paper a very strong team.

Sounds good but where does that leave McEwan and Steegmans. I think AG2R might be also a good choice IF thier is no ttt as they have riders who can ride very high in the overall

After Silence, I'd say Columbia is most likely. Perhaps that team should have been in the poll.

evans has ridden with a mcewan and had no problems...he said at the time that he only needed one maybe 2 riders who could really help in the high mountains

Again, I can't see Garmin wanting Evans. His talent, sure, but not at the expense of team dynamics.

HE wanted a whole team behind him. Look what happened with Sastre and Hushovd. Hushovd was great but Sastre was terrible as their was a conflict of intersts. It would be nice to see 2 of australia's greatest tour de france cyclists riding on the same team again.

...That's why he has finished twice in second place before at the tour... makes sense (not)

and i won the sack race at shool in 1976... history counts for absolutely nowt.. its what your doing now that gets you signed, and cadel, frankly has been pi55 poor for a while.. (although he has at least gfained some sense of humour.. when he got to the C-E on sunday and the fans all shouted for charlie - nope, not a single person calling cadels name - he joined in and started chanting charlies name as well.. - and sorry, yes really, not a single person was shouting cadels name on sunday, his popularity is that low.. ) but anyway...

history counts for nothing.. hes come second twice, so what... ? i honestly think if he wants a team leaders job at another team, hes going to be looking at one of the smaller, non pro tour teams, and hoping to get an invite. . or domestique under a top rider..

frankly has been pi55 poor for a while.

Bit harsh, didn't he finish 2nd in the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré beating Contador??

I admit he's not the most popular guy out there & is prone to whining but he's still a pretty good rider.

Doh I'd always thought that the tour was a bike race not a popularity contest.:eek:

I would have said that about Sastre a year and a month ago. Cadel might be like Hincapie and Paris-Roubaix. Hincapie could win P-R if everything fell into place, but it is not likely to ever happen.

Evans might benefit a lot from a change. A new team might adjust his training or simply put him in a situation where he has a better mental outlook.

History in a sack race and histroy in a tour de france are completely 2 differnet things. I was not at the tour but i say numerous bunches of aussie fans their supporting mainly Cadel. I saw this and their was even a bunch of cadel fans wrote a song about. Their was many supporters for him there. History means nothing statement is bs. Look at Lance Armstrong he proved your statement was bs.

+1
Change could and should help Cadel if he makes the choice to move. Look at the change from T-Mobile to Lotto did for him. It rejuvanated his career. But a rider of his calibre deserves better support crew and team around him to give him what he needs.

I am not saying he will win the tour but i am saying is that you shoulf never write off guys like Evans, Sastre and Menchov just because of 1 bad tour.
