Team Sky announced yesterday that Irish cyclist Nicolas Roche would be joining them next year. Roche will leave Tinkoff-Saxo after two years with the team.
Team owner Oleg Tinkov tweeted shortly after the move became news, seeming to complain about the Irishman's contract demands.
Being Russian or/and being businessman isn't equivalent of being stupid.I won't trow away $$$, just some of the agent/rider want it. #Rosche

Roche's contract does not finish until the end of this year. So that tweet could make for some awkward moments between the two for the remainder of the cycling season.
