That's a big signing for TREK, and probably a good pay increase for Jolanda.

I would really like to see this kid become a contender at the WC level.

I was waiting to post that until she announced her new team, but I heard TREK (funny how the rumor mill works!). If she was happy with Specialized, I can't imagine that they wouldn't pay the World Champ as much as any other offer. SOOO, I assume that there was something not to her liking (assuming is a dangerous thing:).

heard about Trek also but they got Jolanda recently (and already have Batty) so it didn't seem likely to me. but who knows. it's all just the rumors until announced officially ;)

I just saw that when I sat down to eat lunch.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/world-champion-courtney-signs-with-scott-sram-focuses-on-tokyo-olympics/

"Asked if it was difficult to part ways with Specialized after spending eight years with the California-based bike manufacturer, Courtney said, "It's always a tricky thing, but this was the right opportunity and the right move for the coming years, to sign through 2020. It was definitely a decision that came from my side and one that I'm feeling really excited about."

And it looks like Jenny Rissveds (Rio Olypic XCO gold medal winner and U23 XCO World Champion) is ready for her comeback... Nice!

Apparently Jenny (Risveds) is coming back with her own team supported by Specialized (she won't be part of their factory team). Her race calendar isn't set yet. The aim is also to raise the awareness regarding the children's laws (where she engages herself lately).
Glad she sorted out her stuff and is ready to shred the dirt again.

You know, Van der Poel's success on the road has got me thinking - how well could Nino do if he tries a season or two? Or at least, how well could he have done? Obviously he wouldn't be at his level, but surely he would've been in the mix for wins?

I think that Nino could be elite on the road too. MVDP is unique in that he doesn't seem to need to focus on one discipline. He can be at the front of a XCO, WT road, and WC XC all in the same week.

Surprised he never tried it more all out than the stint at orica, especially after the gold medal in rio or 2017 when he won everything there is to win. Maybe he just doesn't enjoy it

First XC this weekend. MVDP is in amazing form: 1) can he make it work on the dirt? 2) Is Nino ready? 3) Are the other top guys ready?

It's not this weekend.

This weekend it's only Downhill in Maribor.

The first XCO WC will be in Albstadt on May 19th.
