Well that's not going to happen
And some huge gaps, too! :o

He can still win the road race, though.

    Dumoulin ---------> ???

    Quote
    In the Sunweb house there are troubled waters: the management of the Tom Dumoulin case (the fall at the Giro, the stunted recovery, the knee cleaning surgery and the renunciation of the Tour) left a very heavy mark. Something broke, in short, and it doesn't seem to be just the knee of talent ...

    The Dutch champion is seriously considering a change of scenery: this is not an easy operation because there has already been a long extension of the contract, but Tom seems to be determined and is seriously considering an important choice for his future.

    And of course some of the strongest teams in the world have begun to straighten their ears ...

    #unox Tobias Foss on his second training camp with #jumbo
    so that's the first 2019 --> 2020 rumour then?  :angel
    It's got to start somewhere :D

    Confirmation of the first post in the thread.

    https://twitter.com/JumboVismaRoad/status/1145981505639976960

    Foss ------------> #jumbo

    I was reading a while back that JJ and Larsen had also been on Jumbo training camps recently. Might they only been at Uno-X for a short visit?

    It's not at all unlikely.
    Uno-X, even as a ProConti team, appear to be some kind of unofficial #jumbo farm team. It remains to be seen whether the team develops an ambition to keep a hold on its best riders and move up with them instead of passing them on to WT teams at the earliest opportunity.

    Could be a bit of a culture shock for him. Going from summer camp to borstal.

    The article also talks about Matthews possibly leaving Sunweb.

    also Haga and Bol stay till the end of 2021 at least

    Hang on, it’s not exclusively #jumbo, and it is not always at the first occasion. Remember #unox Andreas Leknessund, the other great talent that all Norwegians talk about, is off to #sunweb - but not for next year, it is for the year after that, the 2021 season.

    With 2 of Norway’s greatest talents at Sunweb, maybe you understand why I am a bit hung up on all the rumours about that team lately.

    Thinking about it now, the Viviani transfer made this a likely outcome. Going by the interview, the final nail was the non-selection for the TDF and a lack of communication from Vasseur. Already signed for a new team......I can think of one obvious destination.

    I haven't got time to do a proper post on the possible Katusha licence buyout (maybe on Monday!), but these two transfers smack more of a PCT wildcard team than a bona fide WT team going to the TDF.

    If they want to be a decent WT level team then the four or five new signings, on top of the 10 Katusha riders of very variable quality + 15(?) Geeeeeeks, will need to be of a different level to this. Ideally with a couple of real marquee signings that can compete straight away.

    Nobody on Carapaz to Ineos yet - a pretty decent replacement for Poels  #sunweb

    De La Cruz must be out at  #ineos

    Expecting Carapaz Bjerrg Campanaerts Pollit and Pidcock in - Poels Ellissonde Rosa De La Cruz and maybe kiriyenka to retire

    Anybody see anything else likely?

    Harper ---------> #jumbo ?
    He's been riding really well lately, stepping up from "decent Conti rider" to "wins everything with a mountain stage".
    Good scouting by #jumbo, would be a decent signing.

    from Het Nieuwsblad today:

    (tbc) #androni Mattia Cattaneo --> #deceuninck Deceuninck Quickstep
    (tbc) #astana Davide Ballerini --> #deceuninck Deceuninck Quickstep

    and #bora Sam Bennett (if he signs, which apparently is likely) would also bring Shane Archbold with him.

    The market of the week is the return of INEOS:

    Signings: Carapaz, McNulty, Bjerg, Campanaerts, Pidcock, Hayter and Donovan

    Departures: Poels (Sunweb), De La Cruz (Movistar), Elissonde (Trek), Rosa (Androni), Kiryienka, Knees and Golas (Retired).

    The substitutions would be something like:
    Poels --> Carapaz
    De La Cruz --> McNulty
    Elissonde --> Donovan
    Rosa --> Hayter
    Kiryienka --> Bjerg
    Knees --> Campanaerts
    Golas --> Pidcock

    Departure of some of the team's older athletes and entry of a lot of youth.

    In BOLD I put what for me is the best in the comparison.

    I had thought with the rumours of Dumoulin joining that Roglic might be on the way out, but it seems not.

    seems like the #wanty odd Eiking himself feels more happy with his choice of team than T-72 does ;)

    In other news, #trek Edward Theuns got a new two year deal with his team as well, according to Het Nieuwsblad. With John Degenkolb leaving Trek, he'll step up to a more important domestique's role (for Stuyven and Pedersen) in the spring classics :S

    In his weekly email shout, the "Secret Pro" over at Cycling Tips puts Dennis's performance down to a major hissy fit. If that is indeed the case, I have to think he'll have a hard time finding a good berth elsewhere, since this would be the 2nd time that we are aware of.

    That would be a real shame, as he is well-liked by the fans. But spoiled brat behavior coming out - well, like I said, a real shame.

    This is according to PCS. Can find no confirmation of it anywhere else.

    Landa to stay with Movistar and not join Bahrain?

    Bahrain could be much weakened next year as a GC team. Nibali off to Trek, Dennis isn't happy and Landa might not sign.
