What's everyone's opinions of the new British team?

They're certainly not in the peloton to make any friends. The UCI Asia Tour two-step this month in Qatar and Oman made that pretty clear. They especially seem to be forming a rivalry with Cervelo TestTeam, which is fine by me.

But they're winning. Edvald Boasson Hagen has the chance to be a once-in-a-lifetime type rider. They look to have a pretty solid leadout train, with plenty of interchangeable parts. While I'm skeptical, there's every possibility Bradley Wiggins will maintain the form he showed in last year's Tour and be a podium favorite this year. And today, of all people, Juan Antonio Flecha won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

I was never too thrilled about this team, knowing who sponsors it. And if they _are_ becoming the rivals of my favorite team, so much the better. What does everybody make of them, two months into the season?

Controversy will be the name of the game until the TDF , when it will be "put up or shut up"!
Jaffa winning yesterday breaks his "bridesmaid " routine.

Scott Sunderland had a hand in building both teams, so they will have similarities. Wiggins on the podium is a longshot, but EBH is the real deal. I think they will keep winning their share of races.
