    Landa should be excited. He's going to be the GC leader there. There aren't exactly many top GC riders on the market right now, so even if they do sign more top riders, it's unlikely they'll have anyone else to challenge Landa for leadership at the Tour.

    Yes, I saw that about Lambrecht as well. So very sad.

    True and with Rohan Dennis acting weird, he doesnt have much competition currently on the roster either. They already have a few good support riders too. If they can add some elite climbing talent to that and find one or two developmental GC guys to bring along for the Giro and Vuelta, they could be off to a good start.

    UAE is clearly reloading talent. They signed another young rising star with strong TT skills today. Add that to McNulty and Pogacar and they have a nice young group to develop if they can figure out what went wrong with their last group of big signees.

    Saw a report that Jasha Sutterlin is going to Sunweb for next year.


    Nothing official yet, but reports are that a young Colombian, Einer Agusto Rubio Reyes, will be signing with Movistar. This is in Colombian news (so Spanish), haven't seen anything in English for this one yet. If you want to try your hand at Spanish here is where the report on this one is: https://laguiadelciclismo.com/report...nO7ncA6WE24NqQ

    Movistar announced today they have signed Iigo Elosegui to a 3 year contract. He was with Lizarte the past 2 seasons. This one was not a secret and was expected.

    Wow, that's incredibly sad.

    Movistar has signed a young Swiss rider from Lotto Soudal's U-23 team, Johan Jacobs. He's more of a northern classics rider having finished 2nd at U-23 Paris-Roubiax and 7th at U-23 Flanders. I'm excited about this signing and hope they can support him in those races. With Valverde retiring in a couple of years they do need a classics rider.

    Dumoulin officially leaves Sunweb for Jumbo Visma.

    http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/tom-...r-jumbo-visma/

    Do they instantly become the second best team in pro cycling now? How do you think they stack up against Ineos if Froome is ever healthy again?

    Hard to believe that Philippe is 37 years old.

    Remember that one year (2011) when he just kept winning? That was awesome.

    That was one of my first years following pro cycling and he was virtually unstoppable in hilly one day races/stages. It was a ton of fun to watch. And 8 years later, hes still winning monuments and has earned a new three year deal. Its amazing really.

    I'm putting this news as it does address a few things with transfers.

    Interesting story/news breaking in Spanish cycling media today. The agent that Trek and DQS blacklisted after the Sosa debacle is now blacklisted (and apparently banned) by Movistar. This also part of the reason Carapaz was removed from the Vuelta team and why a portion of current Movistar riders will not be resigned. This agent now appears to literally have only 2 WT teams who will deal with him and that is Ineos and Astana.


    Other piece of transfer news is Court Nielson to EF.
