Vanhoucke to stay at the U23s?


Yes, till July 2018.


that will be it for incoming riders at Lotto Soudal, they lack budget to get other riders :confused: :eek:

after Gallopin and Roelandts leaving that must have freed up some budget no?


Keukeleire and Campenaerts are coming in, but yeah one of their sponsors left so they have a smaller budget for next year.

Wow, so Cannondale's balance is now -8 riders. 8 riders confirmed to leave, 0 to join.

Wippert had good 2nd half of the season and should be offered extension but I guess he had decided to leave before Slipstream wanted/were able to offer him a new deal. Good signing for Roompot then. And I'm waiting with more and more anxiety ho read about 1st new rider confirmed at EF for 2018.

I agree, but with Haussler being injured they actually didn't even have a Flemish classics squad.

And Sergeant said in an interview Marczynski was sure to get a new deal for next year.

Van Baarle to Sky ?

And since Brambilla went to Trek De Bie won't be no longer in the view of Trek management but he will leave Lotto for sure and has other options...

Strong rumours that Van Baarle joins Team Sky for 2 years.

Nice business if true with Rowe injured and Stannard coming off a bad year.

4th & 6th at Flanders the last 2 years
3rd & 8th at Dwars door Vlaanderen
9th at E3 Harelbeke

Could combine well with Moscon & Stannard. Thought Sky would try and strengthen the Classics department this year after GT squads being reduced to 8 riders and Viviani, Van Poppel leaving but they still appear thin on riders; Stannard Moscon Van Baarle Dibben Doull Knees Wisniowski Puccio for all the races.

They'll likely get Halvorsen involved. Many think the classics are where his future lies.

Plus really good in PR finale this year, he and Langeveld were both there, Langeveld got in the good final break.

Didn't get affected by the Vaughters-decline-after-2-years-if-your-Dutch virus others suffered from :p

Plus Golas can ride them too. I don't know too much about Lawless but he could probably be another option in the semi-classics.
