Astana the new Team Discovery?

Astana has signed SRAM as its groupo, has Johan Bruyneel, Contador and who else?

Rumours around Trek also say that Astana is gonna sign Trek to be their bike for the 08 season.

G’damn, the 08 Tour is gonna be fricken amazing!

Anybody know for sure is Slipstream is racing 08 TdF?


Since they aren’t lining up for a ProTour license this year (which, looking at the state of the protour is a really good idea) it won’t be for sure until they announce the wildcards in…whenever they do that. But unless Slipstream absolutly sucks from the ToC onwards I would be really really surprised if we don’t see the argyle lining up in Brittany in July.

I think Vaughters has made his intention very public but I wonder if they can get a wildcard spot. They are hard to comeby and often go (at least one) to a french team.

Twould be really cool though
