The new name for 2019 is Nippo Fantini Faizane, and with Tizza not being renewed I think we can safely say that the so-called merger with GM Europa Ovini wasn't too successful.

    Perhaps LOOK did want to jump on that train but Ag2r didn't want to ride the bikes that another team thought weren't good enough mid season.

    Will Merckx continue supplying Sport Vlaanderen - Baloise aswell or are they now on the lookout for a new bike supplier.

    #topsport Sport Vlaanderen will continue to use the Eddy Merckx EM525 bikes, same as this year. #ag2r Ag2R will get a new one, but it's not ready yet

    Has anyone heard what's happening with Team Wiggins? Doesn't seem to be a listing of the team at all, anywhere.

    I'm particularly interested in young Tom Pidcock.

    Wiggins takes over 100% control of the team.

    @BritishConti might be someone to follow if you're wanting updates on the team (and the domestic scene in general).

    I went to follow their Twitter account ... only to find out that I already did! :o
    Since the team only went 'public' today, the account (joined Twitter in November 2012!) must have been 're-purposed' from whatever it was called before (and the previous tweets deleted).

    My guess: It used to be @AquaBlueAcademy that a.o. had the one of new team's DSs, Matteo Cigala, as rider.
    Any other guesses?

    Seems plausible looking at their people they have followed on twitter from way back.

    Why am I not surprised? :fp

    @NiCeProCycling is still around on Twitter ... but the name change suggests that word of this team not exactly being "nice" got even to Ethiopia.
