    Adams says the squad size will now be 24 (they'd said 20-23 before), so even if everybody stays (unlikely me thinks) there still should be three more signings.

    Lambrecht will now join straight away and not halfway through the year.

    https://twitter.com/ollieman56/status/907888384206622720

    Pedersen -----------> #aquablue

    https://twitter.com/Cyclingnewsfeed/status/907897949669122048

    Knox ---------> #quickstep

    That makes 24 next year for Quickstep. So if Lefevre sticks to 25 it means at least one of Capecchi or Martinelli will leave.

    Ambiguous wording in the tweet, but the press release on the website clears things up:
    It's a two-year contract as is required for neo-pros. :cool

    http://www.feltet.dk/nyheder/asbjoern_kragh_forlader_delko-marseille/

    A. Kragh Andersen will leave #delko after this season, but hasn't signed with a new team yet.
    He does allegedly have offers from the WorldTour.

    all those WT offers weren't good enough by the look of it

    #delko Asbjørn Kragh --> #virtu Team Virtu Cycling

    Feltet have an interview with #virtu Niklas Eg regarding his future

    Quote
    "I do not have any agent, so I take the negotiations myself. I do not know if I should say which WorldTeams I'm talking to. It is clear that I would like to go there. I hope I have shown my qualities so there are some teams who want me, "

    This would make the Tour de L'Avenir podium all picked up by WT teams if it comes to pass.

    Only he's never been with Riis. Or Skelde, for that matter. ;)

    But I believe that Skelde is able to get the best out of him again.

    true...I was thinking more that Riis has been a sort of mentor for a while now. the use of 'back to' was poor...

    so far it's only a rumor, but as far as I understood he said that he has various offers from WT teams, among them Movistar

    The chances are he won't be able to continue his amazing trajectory. But if he can... record books will be re-written. It reminds me of the way Kelly started out.
