Demol to Quick.Step?

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, 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."
