Lance had someone leak that Andy Schleck might sign for his new team, but that Frank is not invited because he might inhibit his brothers progress.
1. Andy isn't going anywhere since he's contracted through 2010 so the whole thing is a lie at face value.
2. Lance just created, out of thin air, the accusation that somehow Frank is inhibiting Andy's progress...despite the fact that Andy seems to have progress quite well with his brother around him his entire life. This will now be a question that both brothers will be asked over and over and over again, proving to be a distraction.
3. The Saxo Bank team in general will be questioning Andy committment to the team and wondering if there's some truth to the rumor, undermining the teams strength.
Additionally, after Lance spend the entire Tour screwing with Contador, offering him little to no help, turning most of the team against him, and having no unified plan from day one.....Lance Twitters that Contador isn't a team player and is disrespecting the team.....the TEAM mind you, that Lance has already left, the team who's thunder he stole during the tour by having his new team announcement, and the team who's logo's he arranged to have faded.
- he pulled a Karl Rove, just take the thing that you're most guilty of...then accuse your opponent of it. Unreal.
The good news is that no ammount of evil manipulation is going to change the fact that WADA is going to keep testing Lance over and over and over, that he's going to have to ride clean, and that he's going to keep getting the results that he got this year......and there's nothing that eats that bastard up more than being an also-ran.
