Coast Confirmed as Top Ten D1 Team(6 posts)

Coast Confirmed as Top Ten D1 TeamEl Guapo

I read recently that Team Coast's ability to sign Ullrich was based on their status as a TDF team. It seems they are now not only D1, but also a TopTen. This would mean a guaranteed TDF berth. I wonder if Coast will get Ullrich now. I guess they'll have to actually pay HIM, though. That should be interesting.
Why does it seem Ullrich = tour team Cipo = non tour team?PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

The stupid politics of the Tour de France. Now its obvious that not having Ullrich in the Tour would make the fight for the yellow jersey less interesting but Cipo definitely adds flair which you can't undermine.

... that COAST doesn't seem to have the money for the three years to pay Jan "I had no clue what those pills were" Ullrich!
So now they ask him to ask for less ...

I see a lot of fun stuff coming out of this in the next few weeks!
