Cepeda ----------> #androni

He prefers Alexander. It will certainly avoid confusion with his cousin at Caja.

    I don't know if L'Equipe had this angle to the story as well (you needed to subscribe to see it all), but further to the "Acquadro getting Ineos to select DLC for the Vuelta" news.

    https://elpais.com/deportes/2019/08/24/actualidad/1566674751_856479.html

    The reason DLC hasn't got a team for 2020 is because Unzue and Acquadro had a big falling out over Carapaz this year. Movistar thus want nothing to do with the agent, but that comes at a price as he represents a lot of the riders they wanted to sign - DLC, Óscar Rodríguez, Carlos Rodríguez, Alex Aranburu and Sergio Samitier.

    Not good for Movistar, but not good for Acquadro's riders either.

    He was struggling to find a new team last year when #onepro folded, and now he is in the WT. Very cool! :cool

    It is better than that fake 'conversation' the team had with Trek Bikes two years ago when they announced Degenkolb. Not least because it doesn't take as long.

    But that is a very low bar. :P

    I guess Guardini may need to look for a new team then

    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

    https://www.idnes.cz/sport/cyklistika/jan-hirt-rozhovor-silnicni-cyklistika-astana-vuelta-2019.A190819_140514_cyklistika_tm2

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

    #astana Jan Hirt --> #ccc CCC Team

    confirmed now

    I didn't see it myself, but apparently Alberto Contador interviewed #ineos DS Zandio on Spanish Eurosport. Two main points:

    1 He congratulated him with the signing of Carlos Rodriguez, 18-year old boy from the Kometa junior team. He's a big talent, but IMO too young to step up to World tour and definitely with a team like Ineos who could ruin him. His agent... is the notorious Acquadro, who was also responsible for the Sosa drama :-x
    2 He said 5 riders of the 2019 Fundación Contador teams will ride at WT level in 2020: we know of Lopez and Ries to #trek , now also Rodriguez to #ineos has been more or less confirmed. There were also rumors that Stefano Oldani had signed a contract with #lotto ... Which leaves 1 more, and I have no clue who that would be. Marton Dina *hu could be a possibility, as could Antonio Puppio.

    Of course, I'm not discounting the possibility that he meant 5 riders from the project in the WT, which would of course include Mas and Moschetti. We will see... :shh

    Quintana? On one hand it would be good timing with him being in the Vuelta lead, but is it the proper signing etiquette to announce the transfer mid-race?

    The only other thing it could be is a (denied by Hubert) merger with Katusha.

    Still too cryptic. What does it mean?


    I kid!  :lol

    It seems like such bad form to do this in the middle of the GT though. Such an unnecessary distraction, especially for a team already mired in such things.

    I don't know. He always said that he was doing all the Grand Tours because it allowed him to stay at home with his families (in Czech Republic) for a longer time than usually in between, so I can't really see him ending up at Nippo, nor at a "real" Asian team - unless it's just for some part time racing in China, where the season is fairly short anyway.
