So appears that Mark Cavendishes move to Sky isn't as clear cut as we might have suspected. It was pretty much assumed that this would be his new home but since becoming world champion no confirmation of his signing has been confirmed. It would now seem another complication has come about. His bike and desire to stay using Specialised Bikes. If he went to Sky he'd have to use Pinarellos which despite being lovely bikes means he'll lose backing from specialised who are keen to keep him as part of the advertising. Sky can't change their bikes as they have a contract.
So rumours are rife that Belgium team Omega Pharma-Quick Step could be on the cards as they will be riding Specialised Bikes for next year. Obviously the team has denied this but team sky are no long confident of keeping Cav either. It would be a good move. A great deal of his HTC team mates have moved to this team as well as the current World Time Trial Champion Tony Martin.
Wish he'd hurry up and make up his mind. But I suppose its a big deal for him. A good team will lead him to victories. A week team could see him loose out. Which should he go for?
