If it's Garmin, that team might consider taking a Dutch license. They're more Dutch than Argos.
Both interesting possibilities. He'd have more opportunities to lead at Greenedge - in fact he'd presumably go right to the top of their very very short list of guys who lead when the road goes uphill. But I think he'd also fit well at Garmin, particularly as they have a lot of decent climbers who are retiring or getting old. I like Poels a lot and hope to see him progress at either team.
Presumably Garmin's existing Dutch "colony" make the team quite attractive to yet more Dutchies, so it becomes sort of self-perpetuating.
Actually, while on the subject of Poels, does anyone know why he doesn't seem to feature much at the hilly classics so far? On paper, I'd have thought he'd be very good there.
