On a sidenote; I do believe that it'd still be better to have a Gilbert or Hushovd that both go for stages and work for the team than a crappy domestique. I mean, the former was positively attacking on every hill and finish in the first 2 weeks of the Tour and almost seemed tireless. If he doesn't go in as wild as this year, I don't see why he wouldn't be more useful than a Morabito (or whoever). But yeah, where's the mountain support?

I agree with your post, but highlighted this section. The problem with BMC is they have no mountain goats.

I suppose Porte might still be added to the team, but he doesn't bring in the qualities that Evans could actually use on the Tour squad - someone who can actually lead the peloton on the steep climbs.

Come to think of it, it makes sense.
Lefevre likes a GC guy who can get results with absolutely zero support and RS is disbanding.

Has he had a fallout with Flavio Becca?

Lars Michaelsen (DS) admits that the rumors are beginning to get on his nerves, and that he would like to have some clarity.
Hmm... even if nothing comes of it, there must surely be something going on here. When was the last time that there was this much smoke without a fire?

In some instances, silence is the sign of a very astute PR man

Another rumor is Goss to Sky, which I don't like if Cav is really headed to Sky.
Agreed. Goss should be his own leader.
