  • As good a time as any to kick this off..

    And no better way to start with Sky's new squad pictures.. As camp as a row of pink tents

  • It's all about greenedgecycling.com/

  • and

  • Sky team PR gig this morning so should see some more camp pics later :)

    I'm looking forward to:

    Cuddles rising for Phil in the Ardennes.
    Griepel making (and taking) some exiting sprints.

    I am disappoint with Onega Pharma Quickstep not sticking with Canyon though. The bikes last year looked great but the Katusha ones look sh*t.

  • ^iphone typos.

  • It's all about greenedgecycling.com/

    fucking rank kit.

    Let's have a bet Hippo. I say Sky get more wins this term than Greenedge. £5 of a strong beer?

  • It's rare for a new team to do well in their first season. I think Green Edge's recruitment policy has been sensible as they've gone for a sprint heavy line up which should see them earn a fair few wins.

    All the marketing guff can fuck right off though.

  • And Aussies. They recruited a load of them fuckers too

  • Lots of dopers too. Dirty, cheating Aussies.

  • Dirty, cheating, Aussie, doping, dirty, cheaters™

  • fucking rank kit.

    Ok. Fiver worth of Belgian beer, pub or shop your call. No lager.

    runs of to see who's *actually riding for GE*

  • Lots of Aussies too. Fast, naturally gifted, wonderful, loved-by-all, sexy Aussies.
    ftfy :-*

  • Roster is here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GreenEDGE_C­ycling but not on their team website.

  • Lazy bloody web devs..

  • Glad to see Valverde is returning bravely to the pro ranks with whiter-than-white Movistar.

    He boldly declared that he has done nothing wrong, and that he doesn't know why he was suspended.

    Personally, if I was suspended from work I'd want a fucking good reason or I'd be screaming tribunal, and if I earned a million quid a year I'd certainly be bawling about loss of earnings, but I'm impressed to see that Valverde has the dignity to take these things on the chin without kicking up a stink.

    Good for him.

    I hope his surprisingly mediocre results in the coming season won't put him off.

    Just made the same bet with workmate.. but he's so confident he's going for 2:1 Sky:GE

  • I'd love to see McEwan nick a win or two but it's more likely the wins will come from Bobridge, Goss and Dean

  • Cav aside, Kittel is the man to watch this year in the bunch sprints by the look of it.

  • This Caleb Ewan kid sounds a bit sharp. Maybe GreenEdge should sign him up.

    Looks like Cav is going to have it tougher altogether.

  • If I know Israeli's they won't give two sweet fucks about it.

  • I'd love him to get a suspension for this season, I really would.

  • He'll get a two year ban as his defence has provided no evidence of contamination, which is his only explanation to explain how clenbuterol entered his system.
