|Proving that I do post thoughts of interest. Apperently this guy shares the same interest. Or could it be Ron posting under another name? I guess you will never know, but I did post that Once was pulling out about ten post ago.|

|The good thing about it is that by next year your Team ONCE jersey "Fred" look will be "Retro".|

|Looks like they won't be able to hang on to Mayo even.
I'm guessing one of the bigger teams will pick up Beloki. Maybe Cofidis or Domo?

|I would love to see him rejoin if they could afford him. They have their own budget woes that may see Mayo go elsewhere. Did i see on cyclingnews that he (+Mayo) were talking to Rabobank?|
|Read that E-E got boosted budget||TWD|

|Can't remember if it was on Cyclingnews or Velonews but I read that Euskaltel-Euskadi got their budget upped to $6 Million for next year. Don't know what it was before, or how that even compares to what some of the top Div. I teams, but I doubt they could keep Mayo, Zubledia, and pick up Beloki. They've got a couple of other decent riders that probably draw some pretty good $$ like Extabarria and Laiseka.
There are a lot of Spanish riders looking for a home right now though, so I would expect if E-E does some smart shopping they should remain pretty strong for next year.
Maybe Eroski should combine forces with Euskaltel-Euskadi. How would that be for a tongue twister.....Eustaltel-Euskadi-Eroski. E-E-E.
