Jasper Philipsen thread

Philipsen has a lot of contract offers and, unless some miracle happens, he will leave UAE. His initial move to the Emirates was weird to begin with to me, not exactly paradise for a rider like him. Matxin just bending over for his program demands hasn't done him good in hindsight either. He just rode way too many races between January and July, although he still had a respectable list of results after that. Perhaps he has come to the conclusion that he needs more structure and leadership in his career, because he'd be a godawfully good fit in the Quick-Step system.

As a lead out rider and support in the classics.

Structure and leadership... And people who know what the *** they're doing.

Matxin is a good scout, not a good manager. And that’s an understatement. You can pile up the talents by sweet talking them into joining the program but that doesn't mean you’re a good team for youngsters (yes Pogacar, McNulty,..but those are very individual guys and with huge talent to begin with)
