Instead, let's speak about Steve Cummings who will leave Team Sky and join BMC Racing Team for the 2012 season. The team has earlier signed Philippe Gilbert, Thor Hushovd, Marco Pinotti, Adam Blythe, Tejay Van Garderen and Klaas Lodewyck.
“They've just won the Tour de France, and the riders they've signed have the chance to win almost any race," Cummings said earlier today. "Their entire program really has the whole package."
Cummings has spent the last two years at Sky Team, and has had a pretty successful season as he woun stage 3 of the Volta ao Algarve ahead of Tejay Van Garderen and Alberto Contador. He also took second-place at the Tour of Britain.
“I want to work as hard as possible for the team and make the most of any opportunities that come my way. If I can do that, then I'm happy,” Cummings said.
