Big News from Bjarne Riis and Team Saxo Bank
Cyclingnews.com is reporting (here) that Saxo Bank will not be discontinuing as title sponsor (along with Sungard) of Bjarne Riis's team next season, as previously announced, and the team will be led in the grant tours by none other than Alberto Contador. Contador will replace Andy and Frank Schleck, who are moving to a new team headquartered in their native Luxembourg. Rumors have already been circulating that Stuart O'Grady will be moving with the Schlecks. I am very interested to see whether Fabian Cancellara and Jens Voigt will stay with Saxo Bank, transfer to the Schlecks' new team, or move elsewhere.
