Will Schleck brothers move to the Shack?

Rumors have been circulating about seven-time Tour de France winner's new RadioShack Team signing the brothers Schleck from Luxembourg. It seems that the talented duo might be talking with Johan Bruyneel and company about moving over their new squad next season that will be sponsored by the electronics giant.

The biggest hurdle to prevent this rumor from coming to fruition is the fact that the two are under contract with Team Saxo Bank for 2010.

Armstrong admitted that during the evening after the Mont Ventoux he received an SMS message from the Luxembourgers saying, "I think they feel bad beating on an old man."

"They are both nice, good guys. They are still under contract with Riis. I do not want to interfere in these matters. If they end their contract, of course it's a different story. "

If Armstrong can pull this off, it would add enough horsepower to make the RadioShack squad as powerful as this year's Astana squad, making Contador's title defense all the more difficult. At the same time, this would neuter Bjarne Riis' Saxo Bank team and force the Dane to rebuild his Grand Tour squad.
