According to reports

Katusha will be Swiss reg in 2017 and only 5 Russians on the team  :o

    mmh, PCS lists Zakarin, Kuznetsov and Mamykin with a contract for 2017 already, which may be correct. Who could be the other two then? Chernetskii and Silin I would guess - or Tsatevich, but he is probably out after the Giro drafting incident

    Yeah, they're going full international. Swiss-registered, though? With Canyon, and possibly Alpecin, plus Tony Martin being a shoe-in for the Düsseldorf Grand Départ, wouldn't Germany make more sense?

    might have something to do with the tax laws?

    Quite possibly, yes.
    But that can't be everything - if you want to 'sell' your team as German, registering in Switzerland isn't exactly going to help. They've signed Hollenstein already, maybe they're in the market for more Swiss riders as well.

    Does the country you're registered in really matter? Some Italian teams were registered in Ireland a few years ago for varying reasons but still thought of as Italian and An Post were registered in Belgium for a year I think but still thought of as Irish.

    It doesn't really matter, certainly not on the WT level.
    Mostly it's a PR exercise (an example is #giant going to *de this year) or a tax-saving measure (the Italian PCTs you mentioned).

    However, it's not completely unimportant either. Races often pick foreign teams to invite on the basis of "1 from each country" or similar, and this also has some influence on wildcard picks for WT races. #bora wouldn't have gotten as many invites early in their history as an *at team, I'm sure - but representing the big *de market counts for something.

    *at dammit! Stupid country codes! :angry

    They, uh, have Shane Archbold, who's from New Zealand, which is just across the sea from Australia. Plus Zak Dempster, who's an actual Aussie. Endura used to have several more Australian riders, too. :lol

    This is a hypothetical sentence! :P

    They're from Bavaria, have always had Austrian riders, and could have elected to register in Austria for whatever (tax-related) reason. But doing so wouldn't have given them any advantages, so why should they.

    Do certain countries require that you have x amount of riders from that country before they allow you to register there? or does the country/federation have no say in the matter?

    On the WT/PCT level, I think they have no say in the matter - but I'm not certain.
    On the Conti level, teams are required to register with the federation that they draw the plurality of their riders from; here, some federations may well impose such restrictions, but I don't know exactly who does it and what they are.

    #katusha Katusha has slashed Kristoff's red train for Tour de France 2017: no Michael Mørkøv, no Svein Eirk Bystrøm. I don't know who's on the in-list, only heard about these on the out-list.

    One might speculate the includes are mostly german-speaking? (Nils Politt, Rick Zabel and Tony Martin would probably qualify for any train what so ever, it's just me and my predictions that Katusha   really want to target the german market. This comes with a prediction that it will be Kristoff leaving and Kittel their new top sprinter for next year. If they're not content with just keeping Rick Zabel.

    One might also speculate where the north-headed train is going next. With #katusha Kristoff and #astana Fuglsang on outgoing contracts, as well as a long selection of gregario material, 2018 seems like a now-or-never opportunity for a new Scandinavian focused team.

    Moved the discussion of a Scandinavian team sponsorship to the thread we already have about a Norwegian pro team, now re-dedicated to all Scandinavian pro team chatter.
