• Omer Goldstein got a mention from Ron Baron, so maybe the door is being opened for him to make a return to the development team in 2018.
He was racing the U23 ITT Worlds at the same time, so maybe it was only that. :shh

As for Orken, he deserves a shot at a higher level and he fits perfectly into the "rider from a non-traditional cycling nation" category. However is another fast man really what the team needs?  Not sure of all the renewals yet, but the team could have SHE, Raim, Boivin, Avila, Lowndes, Dempster, Jensen and Orken for various types of sprints (reduced or otherwise). He'll have to fight for his chance.
You're right, they stock up on "guys with some sort of sprint".

Another thing I want to nip in the bud: His name is Örken. Not Orken.
I don't care if Anglophones don't have the letter Ö on their keyboards.
Do show him[1] the respect of spelling his name correctly. :angel
 1. and all other riders with Ö, Ä, Ü, Æ, Ø, Å, Ç, Ț, Ș, Ł, Ź, Č and whatnot in their names
