    The Discovery Channel Lineup

    Here's what I got for the lineup (I expect a few more signings bofore next year) from cyclingnews.com as well as the link to the current USPS team (http://www.uspsprocycling.com/teamfile/welcome.htm)

    Hayden Roulston Cofidis Discovery Channel
    Tom Danielson Fassa Bortolo Discovery Channel
    Vlodimir Bileka Landbouwkrediet-Colnago Discovery Channel
    Yaroslav Popovych Landbouwkrediet-Colnago Discovery Channel
    Leif Hoste Lotto-Domo Discovery Channel
    Roger Hammond Mr.Bookmaker Discovery Channel
    Paolo Savoldelli T-Mobile Discovery Channel
    Lance Armstrong US Postal Service Discovery Channel
    Michael Barry US Postal Service Discovery Channel
    Manuel Beltran US Postal Service Discovery Channel
    David Zabriskie US Postal Service Discovery Channel

    A few thoughts. Does anyone know if Hincapie, Ekimov, Nozal and Padrnos are all signed through 2005? If so, is this team the best one yet? Losing Floyd is pretty big, but replacing him with a healthy Salvodelli and Barry(either he or Danielson will be ready for the Big Show) and Popovych is an upgrade. I also like that Hammond is there. He had some seriously impressive results this past Spring and if he Hincapie and Van Heesjwik are all healthy for the Spring, yikes!

    Any thoughts?

    Do either of you know whether the "new" team

    (aka Discovery Channel) has a website yet? I searched Google but didn't find one.
