so with the Giro start in Israel next year...

...I guess we will get to see some transfer news Leadbelly is unlikely to approve?!
I would hazard a guess and say that with the Giro starting in Israel, #academy would get a wildcard even with their current squad. I mean, the *il Grande Partenza is organised by literally the same people who run the team - they'd be phenomenally stupid if they didn't put a "we get to race ourselves" clause in the deal.

Tony Duchesne
Good picks, though I'd agree that Hermans may be above their paygrade.
First and foremost, I hope that they continue their mission of picking riders from "non-traditional" countries and don't bring in half a dozen Italians (or similar) now.

The most important signing however is getting Turek signed up for a few more years.
Definitely. Turek is a world-class breakaway specialist.
