It seems like the logical conclusion to draw, unless JV dives headlong into another desperate last minute push to dig up a few mil to save the squad.

Everyone is confident that JV has the team management and team cyclist as the number one priority. He always looks out for the team.

I think the two new signings are good. One is young and coming and with a great talent. The other one has the experience and I think he still has something in the tank.

Uran hopefully gets someone that can assist him in Moreno.

Martinez is a nice singing. Good for him that a fellow colombian is already there and someone to learn from.

I still can't understand the hate for JV. He brings back David Millar and puts him back on track then he takes Wiggins and sets him up for success in the tour. So far JV has demonstrated the prowess of a cat amongst the chickens. Anyone who is around cycling can see and respect that.

among his actual management traits that are outstanding he is one handsome man among many boys. I enjoy his work to ensure that the team is on top.

Even as a fan of the Slipstream team, I have to admit that I understand why would Vaughters be annoying to some people.

The other thing is that he sometimes gets a lot of criticism that doesn't really address things he is actually doing wrong. But I guess he is not the only person in the world to experience that. Some people just like to say bullshit about others so that they don't have to focus on their own mistakes.

JV does seem to get underneath peoples skin. Maybe because of his constant commitment to excellence along with his drive as a professional.
All anyone needs to do is look at how JV was able to resurrect Uran’s career, which he had done for Wiggins and Millar.

2018 will be interesting with Dani Moreno doing the LBL-FW double, something Moreno would have never considered without the coaching and tutelage of JV.
The rumor out now is that Rolland is about to get the ax for being lazy and not following the difficult yet rewarding training schedule that JV had provided for him.
Proof of JV’s expertise was evident when Contador was begging to become a member of the Slipstream family and team.

I think we have a copy cat. The spelling and grammar isn’t of a high enough standard for the original.

You all need to find a way to attack as a group better. I find it distasteful and against the rules posted for the forum against attacking another person.
"This partnership will allow us to open up the team in terms of content well beyond what most of the United States audience sees," Vaughters said in July. "Oath has the platforms, skill and ambition to tell the story of cycling in a myriad of ways. We want people to see us better, to get to know the riders, the staff and what it takes to be in pro cycling."

This quote tells me that another sponsor is there and they are about to close the deal.
anything else lacking content I will just ignore.

Man, we'll never know what the Oath content/narrative may have led to.

Dani Martinez was attacked by a motorist, has amnesia and can't even remember transferring to EF. Scary. Hope he's ok, he's had a terrific start to the season.

I got knocked out playing rugby once. In the hospital the doctor asked me if I knew where I was and I had to look down at the colour of the socks and shorts I was wearing to know if I was playing for my club in Dublin, or San Diego.

I made a full recovery, but it was scary at the time and I had to take a few days off work. It sounds like he’s being well taken care of, so hopefully he just takes the time to heal fully and eases his way back into the bike.

I like Vaughters. I met him a few times when Slipstream was riding only smaller races before they signed Vande Vende and Zabriskie . He was a pretty humble guy in person.
