It isn't a crime at all. It's so lame when it has to be some big story when a mediocre Anglo-Saxon rider cannot get a new contract. It was the same with James Shaw who also had nothing to show for himself.I don't know the circumstances, and i know Lefevere can be a dck, but his contract was up, and the team wasn't convinced so they didn't renew the contract. I don't really see how that's some horrible unethical crime. He was a domestique in smaller races. If there is any team that usually knows the value of a good domestique, it's QuickStep. I'm sure if they thought he could be the next Declerq or Steimle, they would have extended the contract without a moment's thought.
