    Mr Green Valley --------> a team with a "better contract where he would also have been promised a more important role"

    Taco is also leaving.

    Renewals for Roosen and Eenkhoorn amongst others.

    regardless of #lotto or #israel he is likely to be *no captain in this years world championship and the maybe-next-year Tokyo olympics.

    Valverde is not given an important enough role?

    (Yeah, I know)

    Further baseless speculations allowed in this thread? or was that another one   :angel

    #jumbo #champno Jansen Valverde aka Amund Grøndal Jansen is going somewhere he gets a better contract than at #jumbo. That is, probably not to #sunweb. With Politt leaving #israel for #bora, I wouldn't be surprised if:

    #jumbo #champno Jansen Valverde aka Amund Grøndal Jansen --> #israel

    Other takers would be squads with ambitions for the belgian classics or a strong sprint train set-up, #bahrain or #uae could be a possibility. However, his skillset overlaps with norwegians Bystrøm and Laengen at #uae so unlikely he is going that way unless Gaviria wants him for his sprint-train, as #uae is one of the few teams that could actually field 2 strong sprinters simultaneously. Jansens work with the #jumbo bee-train in the past two years has been very succesful, with lots of victories for Groenewegen. Rivals will have noticed.

    Not a great (potential) transfer imo. He burst onto the scene in his debut year with some really good and consistent performances, but since then he's been hit and miss and from my metaphorical armchair I do wonder if he is lacking a bit in the determination department to push onto the next level.

    He's French though and with Latour and Bardet both leaving maybe the pressure was on to get a recognisable name.

    I wondered whether to start a new strand called "Froome - Is it all over bar the shouting"

    I am not sure whether it is or not - but if I was ISUN I'd be rooting around for the receipt - or in contract terms cooling off period escape clause...

    Please remind me of this post when he lifts multiple grand tours and a rainbow jerseys in the years ahead...
