And I'm pretty sure that once you've moved to the next age-group, then there's no turning back.


okay, that makes sense. Thanks :)

James Knox went from Team Wiggins to Quickstep this year, so make of that what you will in terms of links with Sky as a feeder team?


Wiggins were never Pro Continental. And there's no such thing as "U23 Conti".


Maybe OP means they'll stop attending professional races and next season only do U23 races?

I just meant Team Wiggins are switching focus to being exclusively a feeder team of U23 riders only next year. The 'pro' bit was me typing and not thinking. I just meant they're switching down the team to U23 riders only, rather than have senior established pro riders like Tennant, Howells etc. They will remain Conti UCI level for 2018 obviously.

Pirrone double in the women's.

The junior mens looks pretty good. The peloton wasn't that big at the beginning of the penultimate lap.

Yep. And in a couple of years, when all his peers have matured, you'll probably never hear from him again. Like most Danes.
