Bruyneel is irrelevent.
Has been.

LeOpard made this deal to get their hands on Horner and Busche.
That is why Alberto was scared....
 
But what about JB himself?...No mention in the PR is not a good sign for him, is it...looks like he's going away like Guimard, another "magician"...

this is a disaster. now they will have like 10 GC guys?? that's not going to work.
Well the Schlecks are only interested in the TDF and RS really didn't have any TDF contender to speak of so that shouldn't be a big problem. Kloden can focus on Paris-Nice and the like and Horner on the ToC and if he stays healthy, a big if, he'll be invited to help the Schlecks on the TDF.

and also Trek has played a big role in all this.
It is a continuation of their distancing them selves from Armstrong.

Don't see the word "Merger" anywhere in the press release. Also don't see Johan's name

The headline to the press release:


Isn't that very nice of Radioshack and Nissan to sponsor another team.....
and the word merger doesn't appear, it reads more like Radioshack jumped ship doesn't it?

I am sure Jani would like to have another shot at the TDF. But yeah I guess the TDF will be for the Schlecks.

I'm thinking they needed to keep JB's name off the press release so the mob doesn't come to his door looking for blood.

He will appear in time....

Sure looks like Andy & Frank dropped all their mates into it..... what a mess but I'm sure it will be sweet by Tour time.... it will be just like 2004 again when they have to amp back the power so it still looks real....

Time for Riis to sign Jens and Fus-a-lung again......

I need to find the post I made about a year ago when i suggested that Trek would jump off of the Bruyneel ship and set Andy up as their new idol.

Considering that there are 5 riders from the Shack and a couple of them wouldn't have been of interest to Leopard otherwise it is very much a merger.
merger or take-over?

Also no mention of Bruyneel in the PR, which is interesting to me.

Who knows? As for the "merger"...looks more like RS sponsoring another team and bringing some guys along...thing is, hadn't they renewed their contract with JB recently? Is he the owner of the licence of the current RS team?

I bet the Schlecks are absolutely thrilled that Kim Andersen is likely to be kicked out of the important positions... :rolleyes:
My thought exactly.

Either they to are in the dark (Implying, that they have lost influence on "their" team, or perhaps never had as much as speculated) or they are throwing him under bus (unlikely).

Or he is still staying, which seems rather doubtfull.

it sucks that the leopard riders riding the vuelta hear this news at this moment. Especially the ones that have no idea about their future.
