Get your large pinch of Beppe salt ready: Bike Geeeeks to take over the BMC WT licence for 2019.

However isn't the WT shrinking to 17 teams next year?

On the other hand I did read an article earlier this year (or at the tail end of last) saying that the infrastructure of the team (all the staff in the background, the facilities, the non-white leather seats on the bus etc) were of a WT level already. The riders are obviously mainly not at that level (they're a mixture of all three "classes" really), but WT and the guaranteed invites must be on Sylvan Adams mind at some point.

I think Neilandts clearly is the man of the hour in #academy, but the hour doesn't necessarily stretch into May.

True, but I'd rather performances in 2018 weighed more in the selection reckoning than results from last year or even earlier. For me, him and Hermans should be the only guaranteed picks so far.
