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.

Hermans
Woods
Avila
Carpenter
Houle
Tony Duchesne
Ciccone
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.
