Left off Tirreno-Adriatico as well by RCS so Giro isn't a certainty for Geox.

(were invited by RCS to Montepaschi Strade Bianchie though)

Rumor mill has it if Contador is suspended then Menchov could well go to Saxobank.

Good for Pure Black... They've made some impressive progress, starting from scratch and getting established in such a short period.

Man that pisses us off! Then sponsors think they don't need to fund us since mainstream media look to be picking up their game. Sigh!

I was all for the radio ban until Jens put his points across. http://www.lagazzettadellabici.com/2011/03/jens-voigt-open-letter-to-cycling-fans.html

You gotta respect anything that Jens says - he's like the paragon of what cycling is all about.

I think his last comment is a good compromise as well - if the communication is open to everyone to hear, then it will be used for safety and logistics, not for any secret team strategy planning (not saying that happens, I wouldn't have a clue, but I think the basis of the anti-radio feeling is the idea that with radios the riders are reduced to chess pieces that the directors manipulate around the course).

You can certainly Jen's point of view. However, I thought the ban on radios was just to stop the relay of break information so the bunch had to think about the time gap? They still had access to race information with regards to the safety on the roads? I may be wrong!
