It's a very slow take-over! :cool:






Of course that would require Valgren and Hansen staying. "Get one, lose two" isn't a very good strategy in terms of a take-over.


Can we stick to straight transfer news and relevant discussion - Jokes can go in another thread.


To add a bit about the guys mentioned:
Hansen needs to show something in order to stay at the team.
Valgren probably have quite a pick of teams wanting to sign him, he's been pretty good this spring.

Teunissen from Sunweb back to LottoNL, so not Bahrein, according to De Telegraaf (they are usually right).
Gesink extends his contract at LottoNL until 2021.

Teunissen will have a free role for the cobbled classics (since Boom didn't deliver). And will be integral to the sprint train for Groenewegen

Ugh, another 3 years of looking at Robert Gesink. Bringing Teunissen back is a good move though.

In what thread exactly are we allowed to make jokes? Nothing wrong with a little levity - it doesn't detract from the thread, you're still getting the same information.

Gesink must not be getting paid much as I can't see much value signing him for a three contract. One year okay. He's basically a rider for the breakaway these days who can also do okay in the hilly classics. Rather see the spot go to a developing rider.

Gesink might not be a top3 rider of his team anymore but I don't see a point in suggesting he doesn't deserve a (three year) contract. He is still a consistent rider who provides valuable breakaway/domestique (in big races) and leadership (in smaller races) options and he is still climbing better than most of the riders. If you want younger riders to get a chance, there are dozens of riders in WT who deserve to go ahead of Gesink.

Rumours going around Tour presentation today is that G will be leaving Sky at the end of the season.

Expected arrivals are Pinot, Caruso and Amador.

Rumours of Izagirre brothers again, they tried to get them a couple of years ago.

There's also rumors that if Quintana leaves Movistar this year the Izagirre brothers are headed back to Movistar.

Yeh i can see the izagirre brothers leave bahrain as they dont seem to integrate into the team very well.
I can be completely wrong about this but this is the impression i get.
Gva to dimension data according to the latest rumors.

Caruso is a great man for Bahrain and for Nibali. If Cataldo would also go there it would even be better. And Sosa. And Ciccone.
