the other week Polish media reported that #ccc CCC would sign a total number of five Polish riders for 2019. The final two were now confirmed:

#ccc Kamil Gradek
#ccc Paweł Bernas

...another obvious candidate would have been Sisr, winner of the 2018 Ronde van Drenthe. Now he was picked up by Elkov instead

#ccc František Sisr --> #elkov Elkov - Author Cycling Team

another strong addition for them is Karel Hník

Quote
(gt)
Karel Hník from Pardus - Tufo Prostějov, who has two years of experience and results from the ProVontinental teams of Verva and Cult Energy, is the second one. [...] Hník is, with his preconditions, a clear climber, who would help us in the hills and return to his high-quality results.

[...]

Frantisek Sisr is a steady performance rider who is particularly suited to classic racing. His great plus for us is the number of UCI points he brings to the team and which should help to get to the top of the UCI Europe Tour's first three teams and thus ensure automatic invitations to first and second category races and thus also high quality calendar, "the team director Vladimir Vavra described newcomers in Elkov's report.

interesting that they mention the importance of the points in there. I wasn't aware of those "automatic invitations" tbh

    No doubt Fus will find the relevant UCI bit on it, however I thought it was .1 and .2 races for the American/Asian/African Tours and only .2 for the European ones.

    Maybe they have changed it or it will change for 2019.

    just checked that, it's still .2 only for the Europe Tour. So no idea which races exactly they have in mind (probably some of the Polish ones?), but it can't hurt to have the invitations secured I guess

    Yep, .2 only in Europe. Still, this means they can pick and choose between all .2 races.

    A clever team manager would now try to get into .1 races ... and if that doesn't work, they can still pick up the auto-invite for a .2 race that's held in the same week. :shh

    #ef Tom van Asbroeck --> ?

    Van Asbroeck says, when Garmin had financial problems last year, he agreed on a low-priced one year deal because Vaughters gave him his word that a multi-year contract at better conditions would follow. This never happened though, and in the end of September he got a mail from the team that his contract would not be prolonged at all.

    I wonder who's going to get the dubious honour of trying to fill Richeze's shoes as his lead out. One of the Oliverias? If they still have room, trying to get Cimolai back might be a good move. Even so things might not be easy for Gaviria without his Argentine sidekick - he's only had one win in the past two seasons where they weren't both in the team.

    yeah, I can't really see how this is going to work out well without Richeze. I mean, Viviani for example in the end profited from not having any support at Sky - but it took years.

    Gaviria leaving should make room for another rider at Quickstep by the way. Maybe a chance for Thwaites, van Asbroeck, or some other classics guy without a deal.

    Or Cavendish ;)

    yeah, I can't really see how this is going to work out well without Richeze.

    They have Kristoff, who might be the most expensive leadout in the world now. I am half joking, but his signature sprint includes starting early anyway, and many of his opponent win races by following his wheel when he starts the sprint.
    UAE has had a weak  team for the sprints this year, lacking riders that are good in the early phase of the finale, and often losing the leadout somewhere on the way.  Kristoff closed many gaps himself, at a cost, less kick for the final sprint. They even tried putting Ferrari on Kristoff’s wheel for protection in the battle for position, and switching for the leadout. A new and perhaps faster man for the final dash won’t fix the problem, they need a team. The option seems to be Kristoff alone: could probably replace two or three wagons from this year’s so called leadout train. Question is if he will accept that.

    yeah, not that the would want to take that position, but having Kristoff as a leadout would probably be not much help anyway. It's not really a quick guy or a train Gaviria needs, but someone to guide him through.

    Lampre/UAE made the same mistake before when they let Richeze go, ending up with a completely hopeless Modolo in the sprints. Looks like they haven't learned much since.

    talking about strange transfers... by the way, what was #cajarural Caja Rural thinking when they signed

    #androni Matteo Malucelli
    #murias Ion Aberasturi
    #ccc Alan Banaszek

    after already having the "next big thing" from Colombia, Nelson Soto?! And it's not like that their calander is particularly rich on sprint races.

    So the same question applies for the riders of course, at least for Malucelli and Aberasturi. Both are leaving a leadership role in their PCT team to enter a way more difficult situation in another PCT team, running a more or less similar calendar. Is it about money?! Or the hope that Movistar will pick up the best of them?!

    OK, time for a wild follow up to the Gaviria to #uae UAE saga. I haven't read anyone commenting something along the lines of "yeah, this looks like a good idea for Kristoff" so we are all assuming that he's gonna do something else. It is not likely to happen this year. This year #uae is likely to become the Norwegian national team replica including "he said he would be leading me out but  he didn't even try" accusations possibly even more than with Kristoff vs EBH matchup we've had the privilege to follow for a few years now. If anything, Kristoff and Gaviria has an even closer overlap when it comes to skills - and without the domestiques to serve both to a meaningful degree, they will inevitably end up competing internally for the same resources. It is just that, as Gaviria has a much longer contract he is obviously the prioritized rider from the team.

    Note: the team has made a lot of promises to Kristoff about prioritization, and it doesn't look good if they are not honoring those. Then again, the uae management never looked good anyway, they just got money, and like the WT edition of #fortuneo it seems like no-one that's riding for them is improving. You can put fading behind the names of almost all the star riders on their team, while things does look a little bit better for the domestiques. However, look at not just this year but the last few years and consider: Meintjes, Aru, Kristoff, Costa, Swift, and Martin being the one possible exception as he has had two decent years without the major successes he may be capable of. In general, they all fade.

    Then, the wildly speculative part of the post: what's gonna happen next, Aleksander?

    My prediction (2019 transfer for 2020 season):

    #uae Aleksander Kristoff ----> #riwal

    Kristoff, his part-owned #coop team and everything cycling in Stavanger has long enjoyed a good relationship to Danish cycling - probably better than their relationship to other Norwegian regions. This relation goes way back, at least to here. Note that the team featured both Kristoff and Tour des Fjords boss Hegreberg.

    Tour des Fjords has actually been part of the launchpad towards an international career for several danish riders including the #sunweb Kragh Andersens and #astana Magnus Cort and #astana Michael Valgren.  I have noticed that if the race is too hard and they're all left behind (doesn't happen that often anymore), you often see Kristoff riding controlled pace to the finish line - along with the danes.

    #riwal probably doesn't have the money to right now to bring in one or two riders at Kristoff level, but their ambition is to ride the Tour de France 2020 and I don't think they will be satisfied to do it the way #academy rides the Giro. They will need a stronger squad and the top Scandinavian riders can probably carry their own weight to a Scandinavian team, a la Cavendish to #didata and Sagan to #bora. In other words, bring in sponsors that will pay for them. 

    Kristoff, Cort, Fuglsang all have contracts expiring 2019. I bet at least one of them goes to Riwal - probably someone pays more for up-and-coming Cort, so let me guess than that it is going to be Kristoff and Fuglsang to #riwal for 2020.

    Isn't that a nice speculation to end the seaon with? :shh

    This was the other big transfer news during the blackout.

    Philipsen ---------> #uae

    Hagens Berman have picked up Vacek for next year, but it's a bit quiet on the incoming transfer front. Financing issues?

    They were one of the premier devo teams, but the crown is slipping (or even already gone). Aevolo have usurped their role on the US side of things and SEG are hoovering up a lot of the European talent. Not to mention Sunweb Devo, Tirol (who are looking to up their game), Colpack who are going CT and Polartec.

    My prediction (2019 transfer for 2020 season):

    #uae Aleksander Kristoff ----> #riwal

    You've probably already seen it, but procycling.no had an editorial on possible future destinations.

    https://www.procycling.no/akkurat-na-er-jeg-mest-spent-pa-kristoffs-trekk-for-a-komme-seg-ut-av-en-karrieremessig-blindgate/

    The gist of it is that the options are going to be a lot more limited than what they were when he was leaving Katusha.

    Just think, in some parallel dimension not too different from our own, Viviani actually went to UAE like it was announced and it was Kristoff who ended up at Quickstep. I wonder what their results would have been like then...

    Anyway back to the article and they think that "next year's contract hunt will take place in teams like Israel Cycling Academy, Cofidis, Ag2r, Wanty or EF Education First".

    No mention of Riwal, but they do dangle the Norwegian Pro Team carrot and the possibility of him (or EBH I guess) signing there.

    Once upon a time I thought I was the only frequent reader of Norwegian cycling press, due to few others here speaking that kind of language, but for a while now I have realized I am no longer the first to bring the news from the icy north down to the cozy velorooms  :D

    Can you also speak Norwegian, btw?

    Not in the slightest. :D

    It's all down to the wonders of technology ie. Twitter and Google Translate.

    #uae Darwin Atapuma --> #cofidis Cofidis Solutions Crédits

    El Puma is particularly good at high altitude, so with the course of the 2019 Tour de France in mind, this makes a lot of sense I guess
