Great win yesterday for the team and, unlike for Neilands victory earlier in the year, this time Quickstep were competing. Not sure how it played out tactically, but Raim showed he is the man.

----------------------------------------

You don't write "CN learned #academy will sign French riders" unless you are certain of it. ;)

The field of potential signees is getting shorter and shorter. Roux extended with Groupama, Bouhanni says he's staying with Cofidis (phew!), Rolland + Vichot + The Gaut ended up at Vital Concept and Turgis went to Direct Energie.

At WT that leaves the trio of Molard (surely will re-sign with Groupama unless his demands are now too high after a good year), Cavagna (could be a small chance if he fancies a bit more freedom) and the youngster Vincent (his 18th at the Dauphine completely passed me by).

Boudat is the only one at PCT and there have been rumours of him falling out with JRB during the Tour.

There are a couple of young 'uns at the CT level that interest, but no more than that and of course there are numerous unknowns at the amateur level, but the pickings could be slim after all the French pro teams take the cream.

So Vincent + Boudat?
