I appreciate that he dressed a black shirt to appear in front of a black background, but it could have been better if he only released a statement on the dark web.


Zubeldia will be missed (for those who will remember that he retired), but we have another legend in the making with Louis Meintjes, who is going for the third GT top-10 without anyone noticing him.

Btw, another Euskaltel legend who is going away. With Samu retiring at the end of the year, the only ones left are Anton (who is not certain to continue also) and Nieve. Sadly, Landani came to proeminence only after leaving the carrots.



why will anton not continue?


Well, if he doesn't stay with Dimension Data I don't see many doors on the WT opening up for him and he said multiple times that in the absence of a WT ride, the retirement is a possibility. In the end of 2015 he considered that, before signing with DD.


WGG looking for a mentor/help for martin in the mountains, bet you Hilaire would be interested


His english is still very bad as it is (you only need to see his twitter), I'm not sure his french would be good enough to be the mentor/role model of Martin. :D

Probably not an end of an era - Landa and the Izagirres once rode with them, but an end of a memory chapter, I practically spent my early years watching cycling only to cheer for these guys, Haimar then Samu, Igor, Amets. Good old orange days, haven't missed it for quite awhile, but now I suddenly do...,

Fabrice Jeandesboz calls it a day after this season. Sad to see such a fantastic rider stopping. What a way to start a week... :(

Arnold Jeannesson (31yo) will end his professional career at the end of the season.

He wore the white jersey in Le Tour for a couple of days in 2011.

Always thought the last two years have been a bonus considering how once it looked like. Wish him all the best for the next stage of life.
