LEOPARD TREK announces squad for SkodaTour de Luxembourg:

Fabian CANCELLARA
Fränk SCHLECK
Jens VOIGT
Martin MORTENSEN
Maxime MONFORT
Robert WAGNER
Stuart O'GRADY
Will CLARKE

Overall it's not the strongest possible squad but still pretty good. Too bad Posthuma isn't there, otherwise they'd had three past winners in the same team.

I thought Voigt was injured?

Gilbert has offers from al World tour teams (except Euskaltel & Lampre), but would prefer a Belgian project. So biggest chance for Quickstep, Lotto & Omega Pharma (OPL will split next year)

Boonen has offers from 5 different team, but would prefer to stay with QS.
Too bad, I think a chance of team would be good for Boonen...
I personally don't think it is a good idea that Boonen is considering staying at QS. Personally I think a change would do good to him personally. Also, Lefevre and him always seem to be going at each other in the media so it seems they don't get along.

That's Lefevere's way of "motivating" his riders. It didn't work for Devolder, and it has effectively destroyed Seeldraeyers, but ik doesn't seem to affect Boonen.

personally think personally think personally seem seems :D

Eddy Merckx has been given a honorary degree by the University of Brussels, basically "for riding his bicycle and making people happy". He was a little embarrassed about the whole thing and thought he did not deserve the title, but accepted nonetheless.

dr. h. c. Eddy Merckx. Only in Belgium :)

He already underwent an operation in Berlin during one of the final days of the AToC. He sent a text message to the Uli Jansch, the commentator of German Eurosport, and said it all went well and he is planning to race in Luxembourg. I think it was just a minor operation

I think famous people get honorary degrees over here too sometimes.

Gilbert and Boonen in one team would be awesome. It would be Bettini/Boonen all over again. Although Gilbert is better than Bettini though(in the sense that he can win RVV while Bettini never got close there), so it would be a little bit different.

Devolder is doubtful about riding the Tour.
He only wants to go if he's 100%, says he still suffers from Wouter Weylandt's death...
