#gazprom Gazprom-RusVelo have taken on an Italian and two ... Norwegians? :o

*it Riccardo Lucca (General Store-F.lli Curia-Essegibi)
*no Fredrik Dversnes (Team Coop)
*no Eirik Lunder (Team Coop)

You just forgot that Aleksander Kristoff is one of the owners of the Coop team and he has excellent ties to Russian cycling, as in I think he has the best results for any Russian team in the past decade?

Reportedly one of his former managers asked him for some advice.

Also all of this surfaced during the Arctic race, and that may be no coincidence. Russia is a huge part of the Arctic, and they should have a larger presence in the Arctic race. This year´s short stunt into Finland is possibly just a preparation for the more lofty ambition of bringing the race to Murmansk, perhaps the only true city in the Arctic, which would be huge - but then you got to get the Russians to the start line! Chernetskyi (former winner) clearly missed in this year´s start line up. You can´t have it the way it became with Finland - no Finnish teams and not even a Finnish rider in the race. That doesn´t make for much attention in the local news.
