TINKOV 'CONTINUING TO NEGOTIATE': The EFE reported Tinkov, through his lawyer, Stefan Feltrin, has "denied paying to take control of the team." Tinkov is, however, "continuing to negotiate with Riis and did not rule out buying one of the other big teams." Feltrin said, "It is false to say that we have bought Riis's team. Nothing has been signed and we are still talking with some teams about possible projects." Gazzetta dello Sport said that "Tinkov dreams of being the Roman Abramovich of cycling, having already tried unsuccessfully to buy Cannondale cycling a month ago" (EFE, 11/3).
