Levi to Disco???

Early reports are that Levi Leipheimer will leave Gerolsteiner to join Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team.  Not sure that I like this acquisition.  Levi certainly showed some nuts during the Tour.  However, I am not sure that he would want to play super domestique to Popo or Danielson.  Clearly, Levi wants to be a captain riding for the overall win.  Maybe Disco is thinking that they need to replace Eki with Levi??

Who knows what they are thinking. Popo or Dani aren't quite ready to lead on the big ones. Maybe they need him to lead one or two years to help bridge the gap.

Velonews is reporting that Ullrich is potentially a possible candidate interesting in maybe riding for Disco (is that qualified enough?). That would be cool, but probably not now that Loseheimer is on board.

Leipheimer is replacing Eki in age only. How about hiring a guy on the verge? Levi has had a few shots at the tour already. He was pipped by Vino for 6th last year and barely finished ahead of Fothen in 2006. There are enough "almost" guys on Disco already. They need a stud.
