Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

Brammeier and ........?
It's supposed to be a black African (although that could well be a red herring).
Grmay is at Lampre, they already have Berhane ...

Mekseb Debesay? Meron Teshome? Tour of Rwanda winner Valens Ndayisenga?
Those are just about the only names I can think of.

    Another possible name, yes.
    I'm not sure any of those would be ready for it. The Eritreans are probably furthest along in their development.

    But honestly I don't think it'll be an African.

    he must have great memories about that part of Europe, his time at Quickstep and Vacansoleil was fantastic :P

    so that basically leaves us with Lotto as only possibility, from the Belgian WT and PCT teams. I just can't see Lefevere or Hilaire van der Schueren wanting to work with him again, no matter how hard Wanty needs that invitation for the Vuelta. And why would Lotto sign him?!

    The quote is a typical non-answer: "The possibility exists that Rujano will ride for a Belgian team for the rest of the season."

    I could also say: "The possibility exists that I'll be the next world champion."

    Neither is technically untrue.

    ;)

    *es Samu Sánchez has signed with #bmc BMC Racing Team for the rest of the 2015 season.

    To me, the obvious question is: Why did it take nearly a month of the season to get the deal done - not once, but twice? :S

    Perhaps they only had one spot for long-past-their-prime GC-top-10 possible-contenders. And so Samu is taking Cadel's spot as of next week?

    My guess Fus, he thought about retirement,  and then Flakemore collarbone and Dennis real improvement over the OZ summer meant they needed 1 more and he decided sure why not

    I want to make a joke about a "cooling off" period, but this isn't the darkside so I can't.
