I noticed it was deleted a couple of hours after I saw it here...maybe GE's PR team are reading the forum.Ferminal said:It seems as though they have deleted the tweet?
I would have thought Big Engine has domestique written all over it. If I didn't think he was signed to OPL, I'd say Hansen, so given that, maybe Wilson/Roberts/Lancaster, or another international...who's a domestique.daveinzambia said:OK so if you are right about Durbridge being a later one
what does that leave. An Australian with a big engine (which to me says someone without any other particular talents to highlight)
(yep am really bored at work today)
was skipping over the non Australians as they have mentioned when it is an international. Apparently it was all a red herring anyway and there is no announcement coming today. We will have to wait for Big Engine reveal.PCutter said:I would have thought Big Engine has domestique written all over it.

My first though was Vaitkus too. What about Wurf... I know he was off contract at the end of this year but I doubted that he would leave Basso's side. Hopefully Der PanzerwagonNearly said:They are leaving today's drip until unseasonably late in the day perhaps to time with the opening of business in Europe because it is a big one - if that is the case then hang onto your hats because it could be Martin (more likely Vaitkus*).
If GE is monitoring this thread (and where else would they get this kind of feedback) then they must be enjoying our speculation.
*In sub editor speak Tomas "the tank engine" Vaitkus
not heard Wurf's name mentioned with respect to GE so assumed he was still on contract.Sydney21 said:My first though was Vaitkus too. What about Wurf... I know he was off contract at the end of this year but I doubted that he would leave Basso's side. Hopefully Der Panzerwagon
But the teaser said "keep an eye out ...." and there is no "ai" in Wurf.Sydney21 said:My first though was Vaitkus too. What about Wurf... I know he was off contract at the end of this year but I doubted that he would leave Basso's side. Hopefully Der Panzerwagon
Lachlan Morton might be GT GC rider in 5 years, certainly showing some promise as a 19 year old. That aside your points are good, van Garderen would be a good rider to get, however given that rumours of him going to BMC have been strong for awhile so I would be surprised if he does not end up there.buster1 said:Whilst its not a left field signing it is slighty unexpected as the rumour is hes off to BMC but, I would love to see GE go hard for Teejay. Hes young so fits with the building for the future, he could provide a presence in GTs straight away (more than anyone they have at the moment) and you wouldn't have to build the whole team around him at the start, (Goss?, Gerrans etc would still be free to ride for their seasons goals) also depending on how he develops he might be able to be really competitive in GT's in later years and lets face it he would be relatively cheap compared to other GT type riders that have been talked about. Lastly Australia will not be producing any GT contenders that will be ready to seriously be doing top 10s in the next 5-8 years, so its not like he will be preventing an Aussie from stepping up.
While it is true that they did not have a focus on GT GC results, HTC still over the years have had quite a number of reasonable GT results.gerrans for the win said:htc did well without a gt rider :rolleyes only 3 teams a year have a GT rider/winner so why bother spending money on one ?? they no what they are an are signing the riders to suit
