    #trefor Trefor and  #champdk U23 Jonas Gregaard ---> #riwal Riwal Platform

    https://twitter.com/RiwalCycling/status/652371242465513472

    Interesting that he mentions Riwal's DS as a factor for moving, wonder if Trefor are still unsettled?
    #ttbw have signed former Danish U23 champion-turned-talented-DS Ricky Enø who's been #coloquick DS this year. Big scoop for them, and another huge loss for the milkmen after Kamp's departure (and Würtz is likely to follow soon).


    Goss ... who else but #drapac should it be, really?
    I hope the signings mean that they'll finally do a 'real' European program, basing the team here for a couple of months.

    I hope the signings mean that they'll finally do a 'real' European program, basing the team here for a couple of months.

    I stumbled across #drapac Brenton Jones' blog a couple of days ago - seeing him based in the Netherlands and Belgium for two months in the middle of the season "just" to get more used to a different style of racing may be an indicator that they indeed plan to do so I guess

    Quote
    After saying goodbye to my family who headed back home to Australia, I have now begun my seven-week European racing and training stint, with Holland being my base for the first two weeks.

    Joining me in Holland will be my younger brother Jarryd, who will be coming to support me for the Pro Kermesse races in Belgium whilst having some races himself. On our way to our base in Belgium, we travel via Germany for a few days to visit our German relatives.

    Once in Belgium, I will continue my training and racing, fine tuning the body for my next race with Drapac Pro Cycling, on the 8-11th October in Abu Dhabi.

    To gain new racing experience and learn a different style of racing in Belgium is something I haven’t experienced yet, and I’m looking forward to it!

    Does this team ever race anything? Only the Chinese races, I guess? I haven't really seen them on any startlist or result outside China. Maybe Iran, but that's it.

    One can't be paying him much, so it speaks in his favour at least that he's gonna give it another roll of the dice. If he didn't enjoy riding/racing/training to some extent any more, then it wouldn't have been a surprise if had quit.

    Have his problems all been mental?

    Even so, I won't be picking him for CQ.  :P

    Don't underestimate the size of their coffers.
    It's possible that I, in turn, overestimate them - but despite being the new kids on the block, they're not the poorest kids on the block by far.

    I had this "who is that?" moment while watching the Abu Dhabi Tour which doesn't happen too often for Drapac riders - so it's probably a good signing.

    apparently #ccc CCC is close to signing #vorarlberg Víctor De La Parte and #felbermayr / #tinkoff stagiaire Felix Großschartner

    It might need AG2R to come to the Uk for the Tour of Britain or Tour de Yorkshire for that photo op to arise next year.

    A climbing Mezgec. :D

    Seriously, Roglič is the real deal:
    He was arguably the best climber in Sibiu in 2014, taking the climber's jersey, two 2nd places in the mountain stages and a 3rd place overall - and that was only his second season as a cyclist. He was a ski jumper before, I think.
    This year, he's won the national tours of Azerbaidjan and Slovenia by outclimbing everyone in the mountains.

    He'll do nicely.

    I follow him as he is in my Emerging riders CQ team (2015-2017 game), so hope he gets a chance to show himself at LottoJ.  yeah he was a ski-jumper but had to stop due to an injury and wanted to carry on in elite sport so turned to cycling.

    First of two experienced riders to join the team. So if that's true, both the Pellizotti and Ballan rumours can't be correct.
