You shouldn't see it as c+e, but c+eu. And eu is like the French eu (as in Bleu, Dieu, ...) or your Danish ø.


Yes, but if you had a French word with the letter combination "ceu" it would be an s-sound. If you wanted a k-sound you would then have to spell it queu.


I thought the name was in Dutch/Flemish.

Yes, but the other poster said I should take it as a French eu.

That name makes me think of the Dutch/Flemish dub of the Lion King
Veni, Vidi, Ricky

I came, I saw, I complained about a route design.

English speakers, it's probably best pronounced as "De Kerning".



There's no "r" in De Ceuninck

Just pronounce it as TheKing which is the literal tanslation


lol - No, there is no "r" in the Deceuninck, i never said there was, but English speakers will come much closer to pronouncing it correctly if they pronounce it as "kerning". Especially if pronounced the English way (not the American way).

Petr Vakoc will be racing again in 100 days. He talks about his crash and the road to recovery. Very interesting read!

Einer Rubio will join them for training camp in Calpe. I was quite surprised he didn't go pro, but at least he's on QuickSteps radar.

There is another trainee with them on camp. I don't know who.

Post edit: Joao Almeida is the other trainee.

Inviting espoirs to pre- and postseason trainingcamps isn’t out of the ordinary. 9/10 times is to get some tests and to see how they fit within a team or how their personality is. I think a contract as stagiare is more likely, unless they have another Vakoc saga.

And I have a suspicion the original plan for Asgreen was to give him a stagiare contract, and then sign him for 2019, not to sign him full-time mid-season. Well, they had to change their plan slightly.

Though Vacek is riding procontinental, wouldn't that rule him out as a WT stagiare?

Edit: Corrction Vakoc to Vacek

Jungels wants to ride some cobbles this season. I can only applaud that.

I hope he turns his focus back to classics because I'm afraid he'll always be a fringe top10 contender in GT's. Or perhaps 1week races is where his niche is.

He can be a very good classics rider if he focuses on them.

cobbles + Giro for GC + Tour may not be a great idea

So, Julius Johansen is on the training-camp as well. Though I suppose it's another maybe, at some point in the future thing, considering that he's only 19.
And, yes, I know he's several months older than Evenepoel, but I'd say he's a special case.
