Don't find it that hard to imagine, as I think Terpstra is way more expensive than Schachmann.
Veni, Vidi, Kirby

Ok maybe it isn't indeed. If that 500k/year figure is right though, that's incredibly high for a guy like Schachmann and I doubt Quick Step was willing to go that far.

This is a short interview in german with Schachmann:
- says that he had a lot of interest from teams
- he had a good feeling with Bora from the beginning of negotiations
- he wants develop in stage racing, but in one week tours first (names BinckBank as an example)
- Other riders with GC focus in the team are further then him in development, so there shouldn't be a GT clash with them
- wants to reach his potential at 27-28
- Bora, Quickstep and LottoNL were the main protagonists of his negotiations
- Contract offers were pretty similar moneywise
- he went with a gut feeling with Bora

His salary went up from 70k to 500k as reported by Eurosport with sources at Sport Bild.

Thank you.

I don't really believe the money thing (that Quick Step also offered him close to 500k) but okay. These are pretty standard answers.

What do they expect him to be able to do for them? It’s not like they have a load of young climbers to mentor, a GC rider to act as Road captain for etc.

They are generally struggling to fill up their roster with quality riders. I guess they have small budget and also all the uncertainty about sponsorship, structure etc. for 2019 has made it harder for them to attract good riders.
I guess the intention is that a rider like Ten Dam will ride for them for a year because they didn't manage to attract more interesting riders and then retire making a place in their roster to try to sign more promising riders while being a more established team for 2020. It only makes sense to sign young riders if they have signalised a WT level potential. There is a limited number of such riders and a team like CCC might be struggling against more stable teams to hire them. So it might be better to go for riders like Ten Dam than for a bunch of second-rate young riders that would most likely struggle to even reach the finish-line of WT races.

An excellent signing.

George Bennett is good friends with Chaves, so not out of the question. He might struggle for leadership roles at Mitchelton though.

Mitchelton were super keen on Bevin and at one stage they thought they had him signed,sealed and delivered.

Anyway MS has in effect signed five WT's neo-pros for 2019 - Yates x 2 ate up some of the budget.
