Dirk Demol may not feel up to becoming Sport Director at Team Astana under the proposed new general manager Johan Bruyneel, but he indicated that he hoped for a decision over his future by Paris-Tours on Oct. 14.
According to Sportwereld.be, he may have already found that answer. During the Vuelta a España, the Belgian website quoted Demol as saying he'd like to work for a Belgian team. If he went to Quick.Step-Innergetic, for example, he could rejoin former US Postal/Discovery Channel riders Stijn Devolder and Tom Boonen. Demol would neither deny nor confirm that he was negotiating with Quick.Step - Innergetic but was more definite about another Belgian team, Predictor-Lotto, saying, "There are no talks going on at this time."
