Meanwhile, the old sponsor's recently discovered moral compass seems to have gone on the blink.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24730242

such a short road from "a moral company" to "amoral company" really.

Honestly though if I was the customer of a big bank and it wasn't acting amoral I would be worried. Seems to me there are two kinds of big banks, 1 that is amoral and earn a lot of money abusing 3rd world countries, and one that is amoral and screwing over its costumers.

    Will probably end up in failure once again. Eventhough I secretly hope every year finally the talent he has will come to fruition, but I dont think it will. Means Keldermerckx will win the Giro though :D :D.

    Vanmarcke re-signs at Belkin; 2 more years (until end 2016). Excellent news for the team, he will develop into a top classics rider, if he isn't one already of course.

    "Most of the team stands together in an attempt to save the team," Plugge told Algemeen Dagblad. "Many riders have given us time to find a sponsor. We have until August 1 before they start to make sure that they can support themselves in the future."

    last post if from February

    this says a lot about Rabo-Belkin-Lotto 2015 season

    bad luck for Keldermann in Amstel (and lost the Andalucia TT after the movistar guy was helped a bit by motorbikes)

    Ten-Dam as usual will go for 8th in the Tour. let's see how the guys go at Giro (Krujswjik is training for the Giro now on Teide)

    maybe is the curse of the Bianchi frames?  :lol

    Yes, although I think it is more the strength of the roster to be fair. Sep is awesome, but after him it goes down fast.

    Sep was unlucky all spring, and now the most exiting person on the roster is Gesink.

    Kelderman seems limited in what he can do, and TdF with no real ITT seems a poor match.

    Ten-Dam, well you said it

    Krujsvijk at the Giro has a nice top 10ish ring to it

    But really it comes down to Gesink to fuel their hope, and I'm not sure that is a good thing

    Never thought I would say it, but having Bos on the roster now would be nice.

    Seems likely. Gesink in the Tour has sort of saved the season for #jumbo because it comes to something when you're cheering a couple of solitary TT stage wins.

    I think it is a shame Lotto will not be renewing Ten Dam's contract, he is a guy easy to like, rock and roll, no nonsense. A bit like me to be fair, only he is a bit better in cycling, I am in football so that equals ;)

    I think he should go to the States for his last few years, he loves it there, free as bird.

    Great guy, shame on Lotto.

    [of course I understand their decision with Kruijswijk and Keldermerxkce coming through but this one is a real racer]

    interesting, I wouldn't really have expected the US to be an option with a 1 year old at home. But he already said two years ago "My dream, or even more so my wife’s dream, would be to live in Santa Cruz and ride for a small American team", so his family would probably be happy to come with him

    Hasn't Gesink expressed similar thoughts (about riding/living in the States) in the past or is that a figment of my imagination?
