Greenedge Horse Details
Age: 3yo
Foaled On: 23/10/2008
Sex: Gelding
Colour: Bay
Sire: Excites
Dam: South Terrace
Trainer: Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes (Rosehill)
Owners: Limerick Lane (Mgr: G T Ryan)

Limerick Lane and Gerry Ryan are very astute owners, so might be worth spending some money on this youngster. I am pretty sure they will be looking at very big races for any of their horses, never mind ones with the same name as their cycling team. :rolleyes:

I wouldn't be surprised to see Clarke pop up for GE in that role Gerrans used to fill....my feeling is he will be given more responsibility and support than at Astana and wouldn't be surprised to see him being a foil for Gerrans.
Clarke & Gerrans could be a decent duo. I think alot will be expected from them; who else is there for GC?

Meanwhile, the team is busy preparing for their debut.

Bannan is at a the team headquarters in Italy and will be back in Australia on the weekend ahead of their first riders' camp.

The whole team will assemble in Canberra from November 28-December 8 and then in Melbourne from December 9-12.

Most of the team attended a short induction camp soon after the September world road championships, but this will be the first time all the GreenEDGE riders have come together.

"This will be the first real training camp," Bannan said.

They held a training camp or meeting last weekend I think.

Beppu mentioned on twitter he was flying down to Aus for a GE something-or-rather.

Canberra???? Shocker, even Pegasus rocked somewhere good (Gold Coast or Noosa iirc?)
Canberra - Home of the Australian Institute of Sport, the best Australian Sports Scientists, Australias best athlete testing facilities as well as some of the best rides and roads in the country.

Shocker.............

That is a sad thing to wish on the riders and staff who would face the chop.
Agreed, especially with Geox folding, Leo & Shack merging, EE facing troubles, Saxo losing a sponsor... Riders need a team.

Gerry Ryan has said at a lunch in Melbourne that GreenEdge's license will be confirmed on Dec 12. Good news.

Who said I was wishing anything? It's just realism.
Realistic that they will be denied by some sort of discretionary judgement, whilst they appear to have met everything required for a WT license?

Ok maybe realistic given the UCI, but it would be an unfortunate decision which would seem to be completely out of GreenEdge's hands.

Unless there's something you know which we don't, some criteria which Green Edge failed to meet.
