this seems to turn into #teamca's new outpost in Isreal.

I'm afraid there won't be much room left for the Cannonball, though?!

    Jungels to AG2R. I think there we're rumours. The rider to help fulfill some GC ambitions?

    Confirmed.

    Since he raced in CCC colours on the 16th, the transfer must have actually happened outside the short window.

    You'll be sad to read that big Stijn Vandenberg will not get a new deal with #ag2r Ag2R, though.

    He would liks to continue his career for another year, and Alpecin, Circus Wanty and B&B seem to be interested, according to today's Het Nieuwsblad

    Every time I read "Ineos Grenadiers", I think of this:


    Seeing the team wear blue at the Tour instead of that Grenadier red will be weird. ;)

    I was more thinking Mitchelton or I-Sun, but who knows.

    Anyway I can't work out in my mind if how Sunweb works is either really laudable or totally bonkers. Fast forward a couple of years and will the endlessly repeating pattern continue with Eeekhofff/Hirschi/Van Wilder or whoever has got them some results leaving as the team favours "collective strength" over anything else.

    Yes, it looks weird but, could budget limitations be very important in this?
    There´s nothing wrong with their sprint train without Matthews. On the first stage of Tour de France practically the entire podium came into Nice on the #sunweb train and that includes a few non-paying passengers that were able to jump on board at crucial moments. Today they scored 2nd again with Hirschi. Summed up so far, one of the best teams in TdF this year (too early to say, but the results always says something.

    It is an usual way of running a WT team (like a development team in WT clothes?), but despite how awkward it looks, they are not in crisis, they are just operating in a different way. Best at succession planning, because they have to?

    Is this team primarily about  making money for their owners? Some of their decisions seem to have more business logic than sports performance about them. Now there are no men left of the generation that won the Giro and dominated the Bergen Worlds in 2017. It seems a bit more stable on the women´s team. (I guess Rivera is still there?)

    The team still works very well, the results are good compared to other «small» WT squads.

    From next year they get #unox #champeu Leknessund - so it is not like they will go bankrupt on talent either.
