...and as Larri mentioned elsewhere, van Winden is back with #rabobank

#synergy VAN WINDEN Dennis -> #jumbo Lotto NL - Jumbo

Quote
"Due to some injured riders we needed to strengthen our team. We followed Dennis van Winden after his departure from our team and saw his development. We contacted Synergy Baku Cycling Project to see if we could get Dennis back. We are happy that Synergy Baku Cycling Project helped us and did the best they could to make this move possible."

    Villegas back to Manzana Postobón.  :S

    I wonder what the story is there.
    When Villegas got the gig at Smartstop, 472-Colombia had folded completely. Back then, he had been ready to retire rather than go to another Colombian team (see Dark Side thread). Eventually, he got a spot in the US - but before their racing season ever really got underway, 472-Colombia had been rescued by a new (and big) sponsor and reformed as #postobon Manzana Postobón. From what I hear, the team is even looking at PCT status for 2016.

    Just a guess that he wanted out of the Smartstop deal as Manzana Postobón was a more familiar (and maybe even better-paying) team, and was let go.



    I should be nominated for the MRWAFECC.[1] ;)

    According Daniel Friebe in today's Cycling Podcast (to be released later on, but Het Nieuwsblad was allowed to listen to it already) Cav has asked #etixx for a three year contract extension, for half a Million Euro less a year

    GT rest days are transfer talk days.

    BMC maybe possibly fizzing out slowly with the sponsor switching to IAM in 2017 the most interesting thing.

    oh lalà!  :o

    so Scott is likely to stay with IAM in 2016 (they had a 2 year contract for 2013-14 and I imagine they re-upped for 2015-2016)

    very interesting. I wait for Phinney comeback asap, and look forward to what he can do and where he can sign after 2016

    Jurgen van den Broeck was seen talking with Whitey yesterday. An old friend from Postal days, he said.

    But his contract is about to expire...

    Van den Broeck gets that top-10 in GC and doesn't really need much help for it.
    Would be a great fit for #orica really.

    That rumour is basically Landa --> Teams With A Transfer Budget, I highly doubt there is any specific information linking him to any of those squads.

    Silly season is starting earlier every year. ;)

    Landa's contract is up, #astana Astana's license for last year is anything but secure (despite everything, I think they're still not off the hook) - of course he's going to be linked to other teams.

    Was in the press here today...only one of those teams currently have a Spanish GC rider who looks like he might need a replacement some time soon.  #katusha is the default "best match" of those alternatives.

    Do Katusha have the funds? I thought they were as poor as church mice (according to Makarov anyway) due to the sanctions etc against Russia, or was that blown out of proportion?

    The sanctions against Russia are not going to impact the finances of Team Katusha unless they have recently relocated their headquarters to the Crimean peninsula.

    of course  and if he was a Cannondale rider Astana would have been mentioned

    on other news anyone hear any rumors re

    Wouter Wippet #drapac and Paddy Bevan #avanti ?

    surly those 2 must be WT in 2016

    The rumours are that #BMC will be winding up or merging with #IAM after next year anyway, so Landa to #BMC doesnt really make sense.

    as for #Sky ... with Froome, Konig, GT and a few others (not including Porte who I assume will move on) I cant imagine Landa wanting to go there
