    He might land in front of a UCI disciplinary panel if they actually look at his bio-passport

    Given how inconsistent Horner's performances have been over the years,
    in the current climate, it wouldn't surprise me if he ends up without a contract.

    I like Horner but there seems to be much smoke around his character leading one to believe there is fire.

    750k (his rumored price) for a rider who may end up causing a pr issue for a team is what is scaring the market.

    ultra tough to get a decent pro racing gig now.
    teams folding, budgets slashed, tons of top young guys looking for a gig.
    stay in school and get an advanced degree.

    veilleux the smartest of the lot.

    horner could end up settling for a super weak contract after trying to chase the larger $$.
    he is, really, too old.
    no discredit to him for trying.

    He will probably land in Hawaii for an extended vacation with his buddy Lance.

    Nah, it's money and age. The teams are loaded with PR issues.

    US domestic team perhaps, but I don't think he'd do it. No Euro contract. The Vuelta win was an alignment of factors that may never occur again, not limited to health.

    yeah this is how I see it.

    No one wants to pay the dude a million bucks (what it's rumored he was looking for) only to have him get injured again. Plus, if you believe the fairytale it was his low racing days that contributed to the win, and if I paid that much for a rider I'd want him on tv 60+ days a year.

    From what I understand it horner did not make big racing money (if that exists) through much of his career. This was supposed to be his long deserved payday upon winning a grand tour.

    the longer there is no decision, the more it seems he is stuck in a catch 22

    don't ride

    or ride for a continental squad at a fraction of his assumed worth, and then lack any major results next year because the team around him does not have the support a top protour squad will. Thus he is pushing 43 without the results of this season should he want a big contract the following year.
