Re: Team Sponsorship 21/22

with the arrival of #astana Hugo Houle at #israel, this option of course looks most likely now.

Although Premier Tech CEO Jean Bélanger arranged the transfer (of him and Fuglsang), no sponsorship contracts have been signed yet, though.
according to Gazzetta, #vinizabu looks likely to close at the end of the year
Combine these two news and add this one:

Vini Fantini/Vini Zabù/Farnese Vini --> #iwg & Premier Tech --> #israel starts to sound likely.

Personally, I'm still not convinced Premier Tech will join ISN, though: Sylvan Adams isn't going to give up equity in the team and let someone else become co-owner. I think the Fuglsang/Houle deal was simply Premier Tech saying "we will get you a contract somewhere, don't worry", and when the #bikeexchange talks fell apart, PT put them in ISN instead - possibly (probably, even) paying their salaries for (part of) the duration.
I call it "doing a Spidertech", they did the same with many of their riders (incl. Boivin) when the #spidertech team stopped.
