could this be a rival to the Acquadro's of the game or just 1 more to complete "the good, the bad and the ugly"?
It's not like football has benefited much as a sport by having more of these super agents around. Sure some riders would getter a better paycheck, but without the same type of revenue within the sport that football has, it could turnout as a kiss of death for some teams.could this be a rival to the Acquadro's of the game or just 1 more to complete "the good, the bad and the ugly"?
About this. Mendes isn't the new agent of Almeida. The sports agent is João Correia, from Corso Sports. This is just a deal betwenn Corso Sports and Polaris Sports to manage the image rights from portuguese riders like Almeida, Guerreira and oliveira twins. I think this is just for publicity, probably Almeida will benefit with some national significant sponsor and Mendes can say "I'm the agent of all sports talent in Portugal", but he doesn't need cycling for anything. For example Polaris Sports also manages Ansu Fati image rights but Mendes isn't is sports agent.It might be a good thing for cycling if the agency's aim is to actually boost some rider's publicity in certain countries, like Almeida's in Portugal. Almeida by the way seems like a very decent guy who doesn't get carried away by something like that, but even then it can get too much for some... Anyway, if he appears in a few shows on TV or gives a few more interviews, that shouldn't be too bad. If the aim is to only get more money out of the teams for the individual rider, well, that won't work in cycling if it stays the same. First there needs to be more money involved. For which, I think, the main goal would be to relieve cycling from the over-association with doping.
Well, in general Mendes is not someone I would like to deal with, but that goes for a lot of team managers as well, so... Next step Raiola?
Do they have a swiss licence? As their insta, pcs and first cycling pages have them as a kiwi team. I know the uci team pages are not complete yet but the only swiss team is the EF Nippo Marseille Conti Team and NZ only has the Black Spoke Cycling team listed.does anyone know anything about a new Newzeland CT team with a swiss licence @global6cycling ?
our one and only Brazilian pro Nico Sessler(ex Burgos), who got strained here and couldn't race at all in 2020 just announced he is in along(so far) with Bongiorno+Mitri(ex Vini), Kurianov(ex Gazprom) and Aalrust(ex Joker)..
I think(!?) they gonna use Swiss as base but just guessing..
I have no idea what kind of schedule or where they gonna race!?..
in his tweeter he mention "newzeland team with operation BASED in Swiss", so I've misspoke. No mention on licence..Do they have a swiss licence? As their insta, pcs and first cycling pages have them as a kiwi team. I know the uci team pages are not complete yet but the only swiss team is the EF Nippo Marseille Conti Team and NZ only has the Black Spoke Cycling team listed.
I find him an interesting rider, as he was born in London, and rode for a British team as a junior, has a uci licence registered in New Zealand but then has lived the three seasons at Burgos and Vini Zabu in Mallorca. Plus the possibility the team is then registered in Switzerland.
Also, what is global6?
