Does anyone know when and where these two start their season?

I think if they were going to extend with Orica they might have done it already but we'll see. Brailsford will be all over them like flies around ****.

OGE don't seem to have many races prior to P-N which Simon is down to do according to ProCycling Stats.

Last I heard Orica had offered them both extensions towards the end of last season but no news on them signing. No question Sky will throw huge money to get the twins.

I really really hope they stay with Orica. I think they'll have a lot more opportunities with Orica...and they seem to do a good job developing young riders. But money usually talks the loudest....

I agree, I want them to stay with Orica and extend for another season. They will get plenty of opportunities to keep learning and gain decent results.

Low key first weekend - very odd OGE approach of just not racing until March for anyone outside their cobbles squad.

Next up, Adam to Tirreno & Simon to PN - both look like the leaders judging by the respective start lists.

Excited to see how both get on, Adam proved in the Dauphine last year he can climb not far off the best. Although with the low-key start he maybe not in that type of form yet.

Adam right back to work this season, nice placing today and looking good for tomorrow.

Great effort from Simon so far, hopefully he can get to the finish in a reasonable spot - not convinced GC is his game but he may get some more chances in other races with Gerrans' poor fortune.

Really impressive from Adam today. He finished with some of the best climbers in the world. Certainly in for a great year.
 
Phew. That was tight. Hung onto 8th by a couple of seconds.

Didn't realise the Tour only has 14k of ITT. Good news for Adam

Doesn't look like any racing for either of them for a while?
 
He's never going to be a great TT'er, but he's still young enough to improve a little and im sure he will. As mentioned above the Tour with so little iTT will be a great benefit to him. A really solid effort over the course of the week and showed like he did in the Dauphine last year he can climb with some of the best.
