Negotiations hitched on brother Fränk
Is Lance Armstrong trying to recruit the one rider who could match Tour de France winner Alberto Contador in the mountains for his new RadioShack team?
French newspaper L'Equipe seems to think so, and has linked Andy Schleck, who finished the Tour de France one step above Armstrong on the podium, to the nascent squad.
The report claims that negotiations between the powerful young Luxembourger and the seven-time Tour de France champion are in an advanced stage, but that Armstrong is reluctant to bring Fränk on board because he thinks the elder brother would hinder Andy's progress.
According to the Saxo Bank team web site, both Schlecks have a contract with the squad of Bjarne Riis through the 2010 season.
