Saxo Bank SunGard is a bit of a mouthful...... interesting to see Contador in that Jersey against Schleck now!

long live saxobank-sungard, my new favourite team, along with milram (who never do anything but i like their jersey) and bmc (cadel)

Jens and Stuey slaying themselves for Contador?? Does anybody else see that as unlikely? Bjarne Riis' team has been turned on it's head. It's gonna take some getting used to.
