    Astana is also attempting to bring Landa back for next season. Not sure how they are going to pull that off given that Movistar just signed him, but ok....

    For one they'd have to buy out his contract as he's under contract with Movistar through next year and has told the Spanish media that overall he's happy at Movistar as long as he doesn't have to deal with Quintana. They do not get along at all. On the other hand, he loves racing with Valverde and said he gets along great with Valverde and has no problem at all with working for Valverde.

    What's the issue with Quintana? Is he just the pissy douche he looks like on the bike, or is there more to it?

    Several riders who have left have said they'll never race with him again. He's had to be told to thank his teammates. At Catalonia he was supposed to work for Valverde and had to be told on the radio a couple of times that he was there to work for Valverde. You could tell he wasn't happy. He has issues accepting that Valverde is the team leader until he retires and that he's only a race leader. Then you have the issue that Quintana can't figure out how to peak for a GT anymore. Also, IMO, he has definitely hit his ceiling and has very likely started a decline. He is not the best climber in the peloton anymore and still isn't a very good time trialist.

    The NoGo Tour paid some dividends. Larry Warbasse signed with AG2R on a 1 year deal.

    Cavendish possibly headed to Bahrain-Merida. Nizzolo to Dimension Data.

    Igor Anton announced his retirement. (I guess that fits in this thread).

    I saw the Igor announcement. It was cool to see the the peloton show him some love during the last Vuelta stage as well. Hayman apparently announced his retirement as well.

    Today, Van Aert has terminated his current contract. I am guessing he will immediately sign and start riding for Lotto NL Jumbo if the rumors are right.

    Not a transfer, but a nice signing. Trek is putting together a team! And maybe this is another kid for the future of GC racing?? Who knows. Hes damn lean at 59 and 128.

    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    It looks like a quality signing for sure. Unfortunately for them, they might be losing their other big young signing the same day. That whole situation seems shady. Hopefully he still ends up at Trek.

    Nizzolo signing confirmed by Dimension Data. Cavendish likely on his way out.

    So the team that already has Alaphilippe, Mas, Gaviria, and Jungles has added Remco Evenepoel. So is Quickstep finally becoming more than a Classics team? They now have some legitimate stage racing talent and Remco has stated emphatically that his goal is to eventually win a grand tour.

    Apparently, Enric Mas may be released early as well as Quickstep attempts to address financial issues. The competition for his signature should be intense after his Vuelta performance.

    I didn't expect Gaviria to switch teams.

    Me either. I dont think he planned on doing so. I think Quickstep is having financial issues and has to let some guys go as a result. They have Viviani and a few young sprinters though. I am kind of sad for Gaviria. He seemed to really love being part of that team, but such is life.

    He did seem to like being there. I wouldn't be surprised if Mas may be the next one to go. They aren't set up as a GC team and he proved he is a GC rider and could possibly be the next Spanish star.

    Gaviria may be staying at QS and Mas will not be heading to Astana as rumored.
