Wasn't he hinting at retirement if the latter part of this season didn't go well?

Edit: Interview here http://www.cyclingnews.com/http:/www.cyclingnews.com/news/pinots-tour-de-france-ambitions-dealt-a-blow-by-arnold-jeannessons-absence/

It is not just the Tour de France, though, that Jeannesson might miss. At the end of his downbeat message, the 29-year-old went as far as to cast doubts over his future as a professional cyclist.

"I am going to have to rediscover my confidence and sense of pleasure on the bike during the second part of the season if I want to continue to do this job," he concluded.

I've long been a bit confused by the fact that CAS can refer to both:
Court of Arbritation for Sport.
and Chris Anker Sørensen.

Murias Taldea planning to go one step up to Pro-Conti. They will have meetings this week to study the possiblity of this happening for 2016.
I hope it works out. That move will boost a bit the Spanish peloton, with currently just 2 teams in the 2 highest categories.

I don't know where to put this, so I just ask here. The giro d lombardia route isnt announced yet, right? If I am right is there a certain date where the route will be announced or could that happen every day?

That's good news but at the same time sad news, each time 2 teams have to merge.

Sorry, my fault. I was on a website and the route wasnt there and (because of unknown reason) I didnt find the official website, so I thought the route isnt announced yet

Good news: he's leaving FDJ but to sign for another team.

This article about participants in the Canada GPs mentions just about everyone and their dog, yet former winner of both races Robert Gesink, is relegated to just the list at the end.

The gazzetta reports on the Italy team for Richmond. Cassani says Ulissi will lead, which is understandable, considering the last km is a false flat uphill (like Fiuggi at the Giro). Quinzato, Oss and Bennati make up the powerhouses. These are good choices, immense engines all 3 of them, and Bennati and Quinziato have great experience too. Nizzolo, Trentin and Viviani are expected to be the sprinters. Nizzolo is looking good, 3rd at Hamburg, and Trentin also. This leaves one spare space. Felline, surely? Cassani says Villella maybe. De Marchi, Moser, Bonifazio and Visconti, Cassani all mentions. He says Colbrelli must show signs of life, and Pozzato is no. So no Sbaragli, Modolo or others who I have forgotten.









Naturally Nibali is in it too.
