If I’m Levi Leipheimer I’ve got to be beyond stressed when I see a headline about Ivan Basso coming over to Discovery next year. Talk about table scraps- especially if Basso decides to go for the Giro/Tour double.
From Discovery’s perspective it’s a little odd. Discovery being an “American” team, you’d think they’d want to feature an American rider in the Tour. I guess they’d rather win (no dis to Levi, he just needs to make something of a leap to be at Basso’s level.)
