I like the fact that Bradley Wiggins managed to stay in the Pro tour. And he's finally left the French teams! 8)

I thought that Adam represented well in '07. He battled a hand injury and came back to ride the entire Vuelta. A lot of guys don't make it through their first grand tour.

I was at the worlds when they named the team in a press release meeting thingie and I was invited by the team to go. I thought it would be pretty funny to rock up and once I head my name to yell out with my hands in the air "Yes, yes! I made it"............ But I was training before and got lost finding the hotel and couldnt make it in time. But Im sure I would have chickened out anyway. :lol:

Are you sure? I havent been told that. I was told at the meeting we will use Shimano. I was told a few days ago at the bike Expo that T-Mobile just signed a contract with PRO.

Currently we have no contract with gear(shim/campy/sram). We only use shimano because thats what comes with our bikes, Giant. who has a contract with shimano.

No. just a rumour from a Pro Tour mech. According to him SD, Astana and T-mobile should be on SRAM next year. CSC is testing it, too.

That I dont know. We are the last to find out. They make it public first to the media, then us. So if your quicker on the web then I am checking my work phone, you will find out first.

I heard a rumor too. but it seems we are going with shimano, but it can change because of no contract.

Hi Adam, I'm told your team would choose for Zipp wheels... In that case chances of being on Sram go up, but still Shimano will be Giant's first option.

Hey man! Yeah I heard those rumors too. But from what I know, we arnt sponsored by Zipp either. We might use there wheels but at the moment we are not sponsored by them. We have NO wheel sponsor, just to make that clear as everyone thinks we are sponsored by shimano.
