meh, give them some time. If I recall correctly, WGG decided to become WT pretty late and Intermarche decided to jump in even latre and there were no real interesting targets left to sign. They'll definitely have to improve tho.

Europcar, IAM and some others were pretty abysmal WT teams aswell. Not to mention alot of races have been cancelled this season.

They had some bad luck tho. Pasqualon had tremendous legs when crashing in the final kms in the Omloop. Not that he would've won that day, but a close result and with races to come... Vliegen and De Gendt too with some physical setbacks, Planckaert didn't even get to race yet. Minali and Taaramae are quite disappointing (although they were a long shot from the start).

Eiking is decent, Van der Hoorn rides offensively and Danny van Poppel is doing really fine this spring. Their biggest potential, CX-rider Quinten Hermans, just started his season in Pais Vasco and already shows. Don't be surprised if he delivers good results in the Ardennes and gets a stage win in the Giro.
