    There's a *ca national team in the races which is obviously also non-WT.
    They are, however, the only ProConti team and could just as well have said that (which would also sound better in my opinion).
    I wish people were more careful about what they say.

    Must be the official Giro news ....... or a Daniel Turek contract extension. One or the other.

    One or the other.
    Could also be that they've (re-)signed their Israelis. Although, on second thought, those all got 2-year contracts.

    The Giro wildcard would only be announced in January, I think. Unless they make it part of the Grande Partenza presentation (which would make sense)

    The Giro will present their Grande Partenza on the 18th. So this is definitely that.
    We'll see if the presentation will also include a #academy wildcard already, or if that one stays an open secret for now.

    Quote
    Monday’s formal announcement means that the Pro Continental Israel Cycling Academy team seems guaranteed its place on the start line in Jerusalem next May. Team backer Sylvan Adams confirmed on Sunday night that the team has applied for a wildcard invitation to the corsa rosa but stressed that RCS Sport will not make a decision until January.

    So what's the SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT and PRESS CONFERENCE for?

    A women's team?

    Just for a transfer? Orken? Basso and Contador?

    Turned out to be Örken, and not that much more.

    There was some more stuff in amongst the waffling, but not much.

    • Guy Niv has signed full time for the team as well.

    • Omer Goldstein got a mention from Ron Baron, so maybe the door is being opened for him to make a return to the development team in 2018.

    • There will be at least three teams riding the Tour of Turkey in October. ;)

    As for Orken, he deserves a shot at a higher level and he fits perfectly into the "rider from a non-traditional cycling nation" category. However is another fast man really what the team needs?  Not sure of all the renewals yet, but the team could have SHE, Raim, Boivin, Avila, Lowndes, Dempster, Jensen and Orken for various types of sprints (reduced or otherwise). He'll have to fight for his chance.

    He was racing the U23 ITT Worlds at the same time, so maybe it was only that. :shh

    You're right, they stock up on "guys with some sort of sprint".

    Another thing I want to nip in the bud: His name is Örken. Not Orken.
    I don't care if Anglophones don't have the letter Ö on their keyboards.
    Do show him[1] the respect of spelling his name correctly. :angel
     1. and all other riders with Ö, Ä, Ü, Æ, Ø, Å, Ç, Ț, Ș, Ł, Ź, Č and whatnot in their names
