Disco Announcement

I got the following from Reeeeeshard regarding a Disco announcement for tomorrow:

Both Johan and Discovery Network President Billy Campbell thanked the riders for their efforts and promised that the team would be back in its winning ways soon. And because you're a faithful reader of this column, I'll tell you to look for a major signing announcement Tuesday morning, US time! It's big and you're gonna like it…

GUESSES?  I'll say Valverde or Cadel Evans.  No basis for making these my picks, other than Disco needs a GC contender with no baggage.  Levi's too old.  Floyd re-upped with Phonak for a year.

I’m gonna go with Kloden or Rodgers.  They have got to hate the fact that T-Mobile’s tactics keep them from winning a tour.  Furthermore, with the drug scandal wiping out their sportif, it might be a great time for change.

The rumors on Kloeden is that he is weak under pressure and can't be a leader, so that may not be great. Rogers would be cool, along with the names Hammerson put out.

I like Pereiro as an outsider, because he just needs a team to put him on top.

Pereiro? Puhleeeeeze. If Floyd hadn't screwed up and given the dude 30 minutes, he barely would have made top 20.
