@WestemeyerSusan
Dumoulin said to be holding a press conference tomorrow. Rumours are already ranging from transferring to a new team to announcing a positive doping control.....

Don't see it either.

I'm expecting something that's supposed to be good PR but rather boring.

* He was pulled out of Lombardia a few days ago claiming sickness and fatigue, so press conference might be MPCC-related perhaps?
Isn't he contracted with Sunweb until 2021?

* Edit, Just realised that was a 2017 tweet, he doesn't do Twitter anymore doh!

No and no. He is doing hammer in china so.

It is going to be something 'more kids on bike' related. So all you sensationalists can go home disappointed.

Yep it will be a sponsor thing or simply announcing his 2019 objectives. A little odd to do this in a press-conference though when he's not out of contract, so I can see why Susan announced it.

I think that if it were something negative/doping related the minor details would've been leaked already.

Which is almost as big of a shame.

He's advertising an event for youth cyclists.

I'm sure telling people how stocky time triallists can become monster climbers will be part of the event.

Isn't it like cycling's version of Godwins law that every time there is a rumor eventually somebody will start to talk about doping.
