You’d have thought Cofidis would have learned not to put all their eggs in one basket with a sprinter, wouldn’t you?

    By the way: Where does Bouhanni go?
    Has any team anywhere given any indication that they'd be interested in signing him?

    I thought there were rumours of him going to Arkea.

    Double U23 TT WC and only twenty.

    Am I allowed to feel a bit disappointed though in what he's done the past couple of years at Hagens Berman? For such an engine I would have been expecting him to be a bit more active on non-TT days as well.

    Sorry for going off topic but does anyone know if he is going to have another go at the Hour Record this year? He did sometime in october in 2017 and 2018 so wondered if he was again this year.

    He has said previously that he would make another attempt, but after the World Championships. I'm guessing that if he performs well in Yorkshire, we'll see another run at the Hour Record in the weeks following.

    Nice signings for the future, but where's the experienced riders to help Dumoulin straight away......of course he might not be staying.

    Jasha Sütterlin #movistar --> #sunweb
    Nico Denz #ag2r --> #sunweb
    (both on two-year contracts)

    They are more experienced than the other three, and would be of more help to Dumoulin ... but they're not exactly signings that make you go 'wow'.
    Feels more like they were signed because they were German and available. ;)

    Take into account that they are not just signing riders, they develop them too, and you have seen that Leonard Kämna may be able to deliver some of that "wow" you and Dumoulin are looking for. (You know him better than me, but he was quite impressive in the Tour and I don't know if you saw that.)

    I thought #bora had already won the battle for the "German WT team" status and you need someone on the Ackermann / Schachmann / Emu level to take back that badge. "Available, and German"  domestiques won't do that.

    it's an interesting development indeed. How did the (probably) biggest German talent available end up with #ccc CCC though?!

    with immediate effect:

    #tarteletto Jelle Mannaerts --> Hubo-Titan Cargo

    same as Floris Gerts (who was fired by the team last week: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/gerts-fired-by-tarteletto-isorex-and-considering-legal-action/ ) Mannaerts complained about the quality of the equipement at Tarteletto:

    Those Zannata bikes are definitely not rideable. As a cycling tourist you may still be able to do your thing with it, but in the peloton this material is completely under par. The framework is simply way too stiff [?! "Het kader is gewoonweg veel te stapen plooit zelfs bij een stevige inspanning"]. At a certain moment I was too fed up with it and started to ride a different bike on my own initiative. That was of course not allowed. I didn't argue about it like Floris Gerts, but I was allowed to leave the team after a conversation. In any case, I know that more or less all team mates complained about the bikes, but that they did not dare to talk about it with fear of being fired.

    For the moment he has only signed with Hubo till the end of the year, but is in talks with the team about 2020 as well.

    Leftfield transfer of the year.

    A change of scenery is good for Villela as he's stagnated the past few seasons and never quite lived up to the promise from his early days.

    yeah, some good signings indeed. #astana Hirt was rumoured to join the team as well earlier on this year.

    He was now taken out of Astana's Vuelta team as he won't stay with the squad (and lined up for Plouay instead :dizzy), so they don't seem to be splitting on exactly good terms

    His destination isn't confirmed yet, but back to CCC sounds logical
