Nordhaug and Howard were the two mystery underperformers on an overperforming team this year. At least it's now clear what was up with Nordhaug. Even as a passenger in sporting terms, his relatively high profile was probably important in getting Aquablue into races like Flèche and LBL. It's sad to see a rider pushed into retirement by illness.

I'm still not really clear what was up with Howard. He was never a world beater but does usually produce a couple of wins. This year he was completely anonymous. Maybe his heart just wasn't in it anymore.
