Valgren ------------> #trek ?
Makes sense to me.
Get away from #astana and its sometimes weird dealings, become part of a #trek four-clover of classics threats together with Stuyven, Degenkolb, and Mads P.
That would finally be a team that could challenge #quickstep man to man, right down to the 7th rider in the line-up.

    yep, today's Het Nieuwsblad says he may sign for #academy Israel Cycling Academy :-x

    In that article it's also mentioned that his replacement #mitchelton Caleb Ewan is likely to bring Mezgec and Kluge with him

    #bahrain Bahrain-Merida is my guess; they've allegedly signed Sieberg and Bauhaus already. Where Sieberg goes, Greipel goes too.

    Yeah, well. Sieberg has been at Greipel's side for the past 11 seasons. You don't split up such a pair unless you absolutely have to.

    I'll believe they're not interested when Greipel is announced somewhere else, not a moment earlier. And even then I think it will have been only because another team overbid them on Greipel after they had already signed Sieberg - but that other team wasn't ready to buy out Sieberg's new contract.

    some rumors on Cicloweb:

    #trek Giacomo Nizzolo --> ?
    #jumbo Enrico Battaglin --> #astana Astana or #katusha Katusha
    #bahrain Giovanni Visconti --> #wilier Wilier Triestina (under whatever new name, Wilier is moving to #direct)
    #ef Pierre Rolland --> #direct Direct Energie or #vital Vital Concept
    #dimension Mark Cavendish --> #aquablue Aqua Blue Sports

    Bouhanni to stay with Cofidis for the final year of his contract, as no one else is willing to pay that salary

    Antunes -------> #seg

    Although riding for Aldro in Spain currently, Tiago was at the CMC earlier in the year which I thought was a bit strange. Isn't the Aigle team meant to be about giving chances to riders from non-traditional cycling countries where there aren't the coaches/teams/races where they can develop? Portugal may have problems in the cycling world, but it's not some backwater and neither are Colombia, Poland or Kazahkstan where some of this year's other riders come from.

    From what I understand the Portuguese federation asked Aigle to take him, but in my opinion the CMC needs to get back to it's original ethos and get more Paraguayans/Kosovans/Omanis in the team.

    Yes and no.
    It is about giving top coaching and resources to riders who wouldn't otherwise have them - and that mostly means riders from truly exotic countries.

    But Colombia, Kazakhstan, Poland, or Portugal don't have the same resources as France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Australia etc. either.

    I fully agree that they should focus on riders from Paraguay, Malaysia, Moldova, or Mali first and foremost - but the occasional rider from a 'semi-traditional' country is alright as long as it doesn't go too far.

    Looking at the CMC women's road team for this year, there are riders from:
    *tt *py *et *vn *co *kz *th *ar

    The CMC men's road team has riders from:
    *hr *hu *kz *pl *rs *rs *pt *mn *pa
    ... okay, that one is actually a bit too Euro-centric.

    I must say, I find this situation fascinating and it has the potential to be by no means as miserable as it must seem right now to the guy himself.

    I tend to believe, having followed the sport for years, that you can explain away one crap season when hitting the transfer market but ride two of them and you're done.

    Locked in for 2019, Bouhanni will actually have to fight for race selection and win big and often, just to save his career because neither his bank account nor his future prospects can afford another season in the wilderness.

    Moreover he will also have to spend 2019 being available to the media in order to launder his appalling image so that other teams might take an interest because his options are becoming increasingly limited among players on the French scene who know him well and who all talk amongst themselves.

    Taking on Bouhanni and improving his current situation would be a challenge for any agent or publicist but it should - and I sincerely hope it does - make for a marvellous upcoming narrative in this sometimes rather anodyne sport.

    That is left-field.
    Especially if it means he parts with his trusted lieutenant Marcel Sieberg (rumoured to #bahrain).

    He could teach the #fortuneo sprinters (which include *dk Carbel) a thing or two, though, and possibly get them a wildcard to a couple of races as well.

    Well, how many races does a French ProConti team have to offer in June & July if you're not on the Tour squad?
    Quite a few, it turns out - Mayenne, Oise, Savoie, Occitanie, Dauphiné ... but those are all mountainous. Carbel is a sprinter/rouleur.

    Anyway, it is not impossible that he's on the way out - with #riwal apparently stepping up to ProConti, there'd be room for him at an ambitious Danish team. :cool
