My favourite  *fo Føroyingar[1] Torkil Veyhe  #colocult ---> #virtu o/
 1. yeah, OK the only one I've heard of ;p
Føroyingar is plural - but as good as Torkil Veyhe is, he's still only one person. Correctly it would be Føroyingur. ;)

Michael Carbel #virtu --->  #fortuneo (1 year contract)

Danish replacement for  #cannondale bound Dan McLay
:o
Nice! :win
I hope he speaks French ... if he does, this could be a very good move. Possibly even going to the Tour!

List of qualified riders here.

Take your pick.
Of course I took this as a challenge. :D

These nine riders fit all criteria of being qualified for the World Cup, having one of the nationalities that the team announced as having riders from, and not having been announced elsewhere yet:
*au Callum Scotson
*nl Roy Pieters
*fr Clément Davy
*fr Thomas Denis
*fr Morgan Kneisky
*fr Florian Maitre
*fr Louis Pijourlet
*gb Christopher Latham
*gb Mark Stewart

Scotson and Kneisky would target bigger teams, at least in my mind. Of the rest, I'll pick Mark Stewart & Thomas Denis.
We'll see how good my powers of deduction are! :lol

    As much as Argon had on Hugo Houle to Astana I'd imagine. ;p Plus POC are Swedish too (unless I miss my mark) and if you  want to bring a Swede on board, who better then thae national Champion. More power to him :D

    Just saw this and it pleases me greatly. Another year with the U23s and some good races on the Riwal calendar is the best option imo. He's not ruling Astana out I see, perhaps and option for 2019.

    Yes, POC is from Sweden as well.
    In any case, this doubles (!!) the number of Swedish pro cyclists.

    I remember seeing him dropped by the peloton on the final stage of the 2013 Giro del Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
    Surely my presence gave him the strength to keep going & now, almost five years later, get a Conti contract.

    and it looks like #LePetit has extended his contract beyond 2018.

    Elissonde excited for 2018 and beyond

    Kenny, 25, quickly became one of the most popular riders on the team and recently extended his contract with Team Sky.

    It certainly sounds like he enjoys his role there, which   :TT :TT :TT :TT #ohkenny

    after seven years with the team, Przemyslaw Niemiec got the boot by #uae.

    He wants to continue, but I guess it'll be difficult. Unless #amore Amore e Vita takes him back for a final year?!

    CCC still have a potential spot left. Rider #20 for them presumably was going to be Paterski, and he still might be, but Niemiec fits the bill as well. Willier is another option too.

    Ex   #champdk, ex  #bmc, ex One Pro Cycling  Sebastian Lander can now add ex-  #gm to his list as he returns home Danish shores.

    Sebastian Lander ---> Riwal

    I wondered if this was on the card when he rode for the DK team at #PNDKR this year. I seem to remember Europa Ovina are to merge with another team and go pro-conti, not sure whether Lander didn't make the cut, or wishes to return to DK. Riwal are one of the better paying Conti teams.

    Cykelmagasinet article has some very interesting comments re a low metabolism problem that he has suffered from in recent years. Disvovered at BMC but not medicated successfully.

    I´m very happy he enjoys there, he´s still young and if he extended beyond 2018 we could see him get better and better with those nice black jerseys

    #dimension Youcef Reguigui

    --> Team Geoffrey Coupé (name TBA)

    http://www.wielerflits.nl/nieuws/309462/reguigui-stenuit-en-bille-naar-nieuwe-continentale-ploeg.html

    well... Reguigui had a decent season on WT level. I thought Bille had retired from cycling a couple of weeks ago. And I never heard about Geoffrey Coupé, nor his plans to create a team. So yeah, this is quite a surprise to me :D

    Edit: SOVAC from Algeria will be one of the sponsors of the team, so Reguigui's signing makes sense then

    And Bille only retired from international pro cycling by the look of it, he was looking for a team to ride the Belgian calendar for

    For 2018 #skydive Souifane Haddi joins his old Skydive teammate #aluminios Edgar Pinto at the new Portuguese Vito Feirense - Blackjack team.

    He was one of the best riders on Skydive, so good to see that he got a deal somewhere after not being able to race in 2017. It's hard to see them putting up a fitting calendar for him though, to be honest...
