Movers and shakers - it's time for transfers

August 1st is on Monday, and that means teams and riders can be more outspoken (take note, Leopards) when it comes to new contracts. There are of course rumours, like BMC signing the entire peloton except, apparently, for Egor Silin, Jacopo Guarneri and Dimitri Muravyev.

Now, I'm not really interested in listing who goes where, because I'm sure other sites will provide such lists. I'm more interested in talking about the moves. Like, is Gilbert trying to drive tgsgirl mad by going to BMC? (Not saying that he is joining them, but still.) Isn't Ben Hermans to Leopard - Trek a very nice deal, perhaps even for both Hermans and the team? Stuff like that.

Fire away.
