We have zero info, but one can’t help but wonder if this isn’t linked to Armstrong’s coming announcement, the announcement he is scheduled to make on 7/23.

Anyone recall the Novell-sponsored team of the 1990s?
There’s a form to subscribe to the Oracle Cycling e-mail list. What are the chances a note will go out 7/23?
