IIRC, Bruyneel noted that the contract with Landis had an extension clause for 2005. If Discover matches the highest offer, Landis stays. Sorry, I can't find the reference. Bruyneel has plenty of options for the Vuelta, so if Landis doesn't want to stay, he won't ride. That's assuming Landis still wants a ride which isn't certain since he dropped of out of Holland due to "sickness". Cycling has such wonderful transfer drama.
