Publicus said:Why does everyone keep focusing on whether a team is English/American? His problems didn't stem from language, they stemmed from the relationship between Armstrong and JB. He communicated just fine and I've heard that he speaks much better English than folks realize--he just didn't do English media this year for obvious reasons.
I may give too much importance to that, but in short my impression is that nationality still means quite a bit in cycling team. But maybe I am dead wrong, and I do not claim to be an expert in cycling.
There are other elements, as how Contador cooperated with Caisse at the Dauphine, and how Valverde said he would help Contador on TdF if he could. Favours are common in cycling, but such public display looks kinda like an hint.
I do not rule out that he could join Garmin or other teams, but the most probable guess to me is Caisse.
