I thought that they would have the same race program as Chaves but it's good to see it confirmed. He'll have a strong team of friends around him for the TDF.


Who says they haven't, from now on?
They didn't have the same racing program as Chaves for the last couple of months because he didn't race, due to being injured, and of course they couldn't have done the National Championships with him anyway, for obvious reasons.

The workload needs to be shared amongst the team, and you also have to devote resources to help the Yates brothers - It was always thought Howson was a near certainty to ride the TDF and there was a question mark on Bewley - But both doing altitude training in Columbia for a month suggest they'll ride the TDF.

Impey broken collarbone and out of the Tour of Yorkshire.

Does anyone know why S.yates rode so poorly in LBL - Dead last in the race.

Nobody said that they wouldn't have the same program as Chaves, it makes perfect sense. I was just saying that it's great to see confirmation.

Maybe Simon rode the race at an easy tempo so he could be good for Romandie.

Another good ride by Edmondson in the Prologue of Romandie - Third place is an excellent sign - Reckon Orica will quickly have him locked up.

I'm pretty sure Edmondson was always going to be re-signed but the way he's going he might get a slight bump in what was on the table, he looked very promising as a junior and is starting to show why he was rated highly.

There's little real doubt that, bar major poor conduct issues, all three of Haig, Edmondson & Power will be resigned by ORS but Haig & Edmondson have both shown that they are likely to attract some significant market interest in a few year's time so one suspects ORS will enhance their offers.

Having said that, ORS has now arguably graduated from being a "second level" WT team to being one of the top bracket teams (top 5-6) as regards rankings/results so any future moves would be far less a case of "moving up to a higher ranked team" but rather seeking further personal opportunities that may be shut out at ORS.

Nope, he was one of the main team's weaponsalong with his bro and Albasini. Poor showing, indeed. Even no significant help from him. Wasted spot on the roster.
