Luxembourg’s cyclist-of-the-moment, Andy Schleck, has reacted to reports in yesterday’s French daily sports newspaper, l’Equipe, that negotiations were at an advanced stage of him joining Lance Armstrong‘s cycling team for next season.
Armstrong confirmed during the recent Tour de France that he will be forming a new team next year, with the title sponsor being Radio Shack, an electronics retail chain in the US.
Yesterday’s report also alleged that Armstrong was interested only in the the younger of the Schleck brothers, Andy, and not in his elder brother.
Andy Schleck dismissed these rumours and said that both he and his brother would be riding for the Saxo Bank team next season, and that if her were to move at some time in the future, he would move with his brother.
