Schlecks seek emancipation from father figure

La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that the Schleck brothers are looking to break free from Riis cycling and form their own team.  The article is not on their English site and while my Italian is suspect, it looks like the two brothers are trying to poach Fabian Cancellara and have Kim Andersen serve as Director.

On my way home from Sweden, I was reading how Frank Schleck pledged his undying loyalty to Bjarne saying that he would always ride for the Dane.  He also felt that a new sponsor for the team was a mere formality.  So what happened?

    Maybe some sarcasm was lost in translation? Sounds a little suspect.

    I thought about that since it was stated in a casual manner. “Contador riding well, and Oh yea, the Schlecks are leaving.”
