    What about tires? They had some wonderful stuff for time trials in wet weather last year....  :P
    (Having said that, one win in in tour des fjords, launched by downhill attack in a challenging descent in Nordheimsund - so it can’t be as bad as it seemed to be in the time trials...)

    Veloconcept
    Vital Concept, not Veloconcept. Veloconcept is what Riis' team was called for half a year in 2017.

    See, you can't even remember Coquard's team's correct name, they're that struggling.
    :lol


    Also, it should be mentioned that for the French federation (and tax authorities), all French Conti riders (or riders at French Conti teams) are considered pros - with the resultant minimum wages & social security contributions (at least for the French Conti teams), and obligation to race in the French championships.

    So for a French Conti team, the step up to ProConti isn't as big as it may seem, and probably brings more advantages (possibility of WT wildcards, and definitely some HC invitations) than disadvantages (wage budget doesn't have to be raised by multitudes, and the roster can stay more or less the same).

    Barguil already asked and used Shimano pedals since he rode with them (and if your main man does not want LOOK pedals in a team sponsored by the brand who invented them, well...)
    Look won the race for the team sponsorship by a whisker this winter against Giant
    Barguil owns a Giant mega store in his town
    Giant wil leave Sunweb at the end of 2018 so it has some free cash  ;)
    let´s see if Giant will race the Tour with 2 teams

    I pity the Fortuneo/Barguil fans who got a brand new Look frame this spring  :angry :D

    I'm trying to think of a team swapping bikes mid season and I can't think of one off the top of my head.

    With silly season - for riders, and for sponsors - now in full swing, I've started a new thread for sponsor rumours and confirmations regarding the 2019 season and beyond:
    Team Sponsorship 18/19
    The relevant posts have been moved over there, so this thread should only be used for things that are immediate (like #fortuneo changing horses bike sponsors mid-stream mid-season. :)
