that would mean Nozal (sp?) is da man for the team formerly known as Once'? They are supposedly going to be announcing a new sponsor?

I thought Beloki was going to stay faithful with ONCE unless they couldn't find a sponser. Does that mean ONCE didn't find a sponser??

From DP

On ullrich but shows info on ONCE

He will stay with Bianchi with whatever new sponsor they find.

He will go to CSC, because Jens Voigt and Jörg Jaksche are transferring there.

There will be a merger of Bianchi and CSC.

He will return to Telekom a.k.a. T-Mobile.

He will go to Quickstep.

He will accept the "offer from a foreign team," whose name he neglected to mention.

There will be a merger of Bianchi and Saeco.

He will stay with Team Bianchi-Volkswagen.

He will stay with Team Bianchi-Deutsche Bank.

He will accept an offer "from Spain," which can only be Kelme (no money), Euskaltel (he's not Basque), Banesto (no sponsor for next year) or ONCE (no sponsor for next year).....

Or has someone confused Spain and Italy? This brings up the name Vini Caldirola, a currently-Italian team which is going to be a Spanish team next season.

He will go to CSC, because in an interview Jens Voigt said that another German would be joining the team.

He will join Team Balarean Islas, which will take over Banesto.

No, he is definitely going back to Telekom, becase Ruday Pevenage has declared himself ready to kiss and make up with Walter Godefroot (whose reaction to this announcement is unknown).

He will go to Banesto which will be sponsored by a to-date-unnamed Italian company.

Or will Specialized Bikes take over Team Bianchi and presumably Bianchi would disappear entirely -- whose bikes would the team ride?

Team Balarean Islas won't take over Banesto, but ONCE and still wants Ullrich.....

And the newest rumor: Vodafone will take over ONCE and sign Ullrich. This is popular among those who dislike Telekom, as the two companies are direct competitors.

Some sources are saying he indeed is riding for CSC. The other sources are saying he has not made the decision yet.

Running into slight confusion i guesss.
