Levi Leipheimer and Alberto Contador have signed with Team Astana, and it's rumored that 4 other very strong riders from Discover will sign with the "new look team" (Janez Brajkovic, Vladimir Gusev, Benjamin Noval, and Sergio Paulhino). All I have to say to the rest of the ProTour is: "Be very
afraid." There are now 4 very strong Grand Tour GC-guys on that team: Andreas Kloden, Paolo Salvodelli, Alberto, and Levi. Add to that mix the guys Astana had supporting Vino and Kloden this past Tour, and you're looking at a team that's very capable of sweeping all three tours.
