#dhb with plans to go PCT in 2021.

Kometa reiterated their desire to join those ranks as well in the past few days. Those two + Beat would balance out somewhat the loss of teams we had this year.

------------------

As an aside, Baugnies paints a shambolic picture of Wanty in that interview - not knowing what races were on their calendar until a week beforehand.

    To be fair he could’ve got that info from PCS.

    I get a picture of Wanty as a very old-school team. After all, the team manager is Hilaire Van der Schueren - the Belgian version of Gianni Savio.

    The team management will have known which races they do well in advance.[1]
    But in their mind there's no need to tell the riders such details, or allocate riders to races more than a week before; that would just be extra work for the mugwumps. The DS phones up whoever he wants to take when planning the travel, and either they stand at the ready, or they don't get another offer come contract time. :shh

    In those old-school minds, riders have to be ready to be thrown into a Grand Tour at five minutes' notice. It didn't hurt Thevenet in the 1970s, why should it bother anyone today?
    :P
     1. or the team is more shambolic than even I can imagine; and this is cycling we're talking about

    #sapura Team Sapura Cycling considers to step up as well

    “It has been four years since we started (Team Sapura Cycling) and we are keen to move on to the next step,” said Sayuti.

    “We are hoping to do so (ProTeam) if we can secure the support from Sapura. We will make a request and discuss it with them. Based on (the capability of) the current management and the riders we have, we are ready to do so.”

    Canyon, Beat, Kometa, Sapura and........Team Región Central?

    Quote
    The mayor of Bogotá (anybody else remember Antanas Mockus? it's no longer him btw) and the governors of Cundinamarca, Boyacá, Meta, Huila and Tolima signed a historic agreement on Saturday in Sumapaz, the #PactoSumaPaz , to strengthen regional integration and local development. One of its axes is the 'Construction and promotion of regional identity through cycling' with the creation of the professional and international team Team Región Central , in addition to a female training. The presentation will be during the first half of 2020.

    Saldarriaga will be in charge, if it goes ahead of course.

    Letting GVA go would save a few bucks. Don't see too many other big earners in the 19 riders out of contract at the end of the year.
