I think it will be 8 (and I think Sky think that as well judging by Stannard's performances).

Let face it though, its unlikely the UCI even know whats going on.

thats my thought. Sky would not have had Stannard battling for 5th on the final stage in Poland if they thought they already had 9.

Im fairly confident its eight.

I think we are guessing frankly, and I think the UCI rules are made deliberately complicated
I believe Dan Brown's next novel "The McQuaid Code" is based on this very subject.

Of course, if Cavendish signs for Greenedge Dave Brailsford might decide to stick it to him and leave him out with the team riding for Swift :D
You say it in jest, but it is that possibility of unfair influence or confict of interest, or at least the appearance of it, which has always seemed dangerous to me about the linked relationship between British Cycling and Sky.

Can't see it happen. The way all the GB riders rode in the test event for Cav means either he's signing for Sky or else the conflict of interest thing is a load of crap.

I've yet to see any evidence of any conflict of evidence which is having a negative impact on team GB, with the exception of DB maybe taking his eye off the ball last year with the track team.

Still think that for GB, the benefits of Team Sky outweigh the negatives. I just hope that some GB riders still try and ride for other teams (Lloyd, Blythe, etc). Not every brit needs to ride for Sky.
 
I think winning the Tour of Austria was a reasonable marker but that was two years ago now. He must realise he won't achieve that because his stage wins in the Dauphiné, Herald Sun Tour and Cadel Evans race follow a similar - and new - pattern to each other; if he can get a lead of a few seconds in the final 10km, he can pursuit away to the finish. If he applies that method in more races in the future, he's a useful disruptive influence on a race and he can aspire to win enough to consider his potential fulfilled.
 
Odd season so far:

51st in a supporting role at the Tour Down Under - 1st Cadel Evans race - 2nd overall and a stage, Herald Sun Tour.

Then a month off before DNF Strade Bianche - 15th overall Tirreno-Adriatico - though I doubt he was trying - 49th in a supporting role at MSR.

Then another month off... and now he's riding the Tour de Yorkshire. Why the stop-start nature to his season?

Oh my he's in deep ****
No surprise, he's probably the biggest tool in in British cycling.
Can tell by the way he acts on the bike, have seen him scolding breakaway partners when they had no reason to ride

Doesn't matter if he's a tool, he's got a point, although he missed it in his tweet.

It makes zero sense for Sky to waste money on women cycling. Sponsors invest to make money, not to lose them..
