i'd say wiggins is significantly more likely than cavendish. he could race for national pride, be a clear team leader, and help the team with their stated goal of winning the TdF with a Brit within 5 years.Wolfpengap said:Anyone have any rumor knowledge on who may join this team?
Are they going after Wiggins and/or Cavendish?
Who may be team leaders on this squad?
i'd say cavendish would be 1) more expensive, 2) less willing to leave his leadout train 3) less in the direction of the team's mission statement than wiggo.
additionally, it's difficult to build a team built around a high placing in the GC while also providing your world-class sprinter with a great leadout train. garmin, this year, i guess did ok, but didn't really dominate either.
just my $.02
