Re: The 2021 Auto-Wildcard Race

Kaboom!

 #alpecin 3492

It was bound to happen. Despite Barguil's best efforts at FW and LBL, MVDP has dragged Alpecin ahead of Arkea and we haven't even reached the cobbled classics yet.

As pointed out a few posts back, a lot now will hinge on what happens with NTT. At the moment things look bleak for them and if they disappear then there will be two auto-wildcards for all WT events and Arkea can rest easy. However we all thought CCC was gonna go down the plughole, but lo and behold, Circus threw their hat (and money) into the ring. Could the same happen with NTT? Either by another PCT team or some random wealthy guy? Spending a few million and getting invites to all the big races sounds tempting.

That's the thought that will keep Arkea awake at night.

Cause we don't know what is happening with Quintana and co after the TDF raid, and will ASO look favourably on the team and give them a normal wildcard if the Colombian is guilty of something or other?
