A very good summation, I agree totally.......Cav will be gone from Sky and Sky will dominate in the tours nonetheless and Cav will be successful no matter where he is!Afrank said:Agree, With Wiggins, Froome, Henao, Uran, and others they have more than enough to challenge for each grand tour plus the smaller tours. Sky is a grand tour team, and as long as they are a grand tour team Cav will not get nearly as much opportunities to win like he would at a team like OPQS or Greenedge.
+1Mr Pumpy said:I thought Cav's wins this year were some of the most exciting of the whole tour. It was great to see him scrap for it, rather than just 'finish off' a la HTC. Lack of a dominant train for Cav definitely makes for more exciting viewing, especially up against an ascendant Greipel with better backing behind him than Cav.
In fairness to Cav (well someone has to) he was always the first to attribute his dominance to the efforts of his HTC team.
OPQS, Atstana, BMC and Katusha.avanti said:Perhaps Cav will have to stay with Sky:
(1) Two years remaining on his Sky contract
(2) release fee up to $ million pounds
(3) His current salary estimated at 2 million pounds per year
What team can offer that money at this time?
Cav should hire a better manager/negotiator/contract-writer next time.
Yep. I guess he'll just have to make do with being the most success sprinter in Tour history.El Pistolero said:Theyoullneverbeanolympicchampioncaveceptinyourdreamswhereyouthinkyoucouldvewonthebunchsprintifeverythingcamebacktogethertoobaditdidnt spot
