Kristoff to Uno-X was a done deal back in June already, according to media reports, so if this is true. Cav must have signed months ago as well“To be honest when Cavendish was on the market with us we were still very much busy with Kristoff. So by the time Alex decided he would move then Cavendish was no longer on the market, and we moved on to signing other riders.”
Makes sense. BB cannot announce Cavendish before the new sponsors/project is announced.
Well the announcement looks like it is postponed. He may be joining some other team if the money is good.https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/mark-cavendish-reaches-provisional-agreement-to-join-bandb-hotels-ktm-reports-suggest/
Looks like it will be announced the 26th and riding together with Richeze, ironic after the beginning of the year.
He's in no position to ask for anythingHis asking price should be:
- a TdF spot;
- a bit of a lead out train, or at least 1-2 decent lead out riders that can guard / position him;
- a fixed paycheck for the first half of the season (everything is on the Tour anyway) + a good racing calendar;
- a bonus system for races after the Tour so he's still motivated and can score points for the team.
Like Froome, Cavendish generates massive amount of press (good and bad). That is a big upside and if 35 happens, the team that he is on would get massive exposure.He's in no position to ask for anything
he has a potential tour stage on offer.He's in no position to ask for anything
Poor Uno-X.Lates rumors says that Human Powered Health could be an option.
They have 22 riders on contract, but not really a team that consist of experienced lead out guys. Could possibly do something with Peak and Aniolkowski?
If they are to sign Cavendish they should probably also sign 1 or 2 more riders to try to maximize his possibilities. Cees Bol should still be available right? Cav + Bol would probably be expensive for such a team, but the two of them together would really lift the team to be a serious contender for a Tour spot.
