We spoke with Ben Perry about his new role on the Continental squad:  "The team will serve to help develop these young Israelis and do a bunch of [UCI] .2 and .1 level races, mostly in Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.  I'm going to be a leader next year for that team. There's going to be room to move from the Continental team to the WorldTour team within the same structure.  So, there's a chance for me to do races with the WorldTour team at points during the year."

"I'm excited about the opportunity, because things went well last year and I won a race, but there just wasn't enough room for me at the end of the day [on the WorldTour team].  It's an opportunity to be a leader and try and win again, rather than being a team mate.  So I'm taking that opportunity with both hands, and hopefully it's one year in Continental and then back up."

Well he think's he's going to be a leader in the team next year, so maybe Avila will be too then.

Still don't think that makes too much sense. Should be more about the youngsters.
