Back to Team Ineos (it is their thread after all) - missing out on Albert Philipsen and it's not for lack of money as that's not the main worry (apparently)

“There are three teams in competition for him,” Philipsen's agent, Alex Carera has told GCN. “Ineos and Jumbo are a no now. It’s Bora, Trek and UAE. With Ineos, we must understand what happens after the Rod Ellingworth era. ... “It’s not a question about money, it’s about the project because he’s a multi-disciplinary rider and there are some interesting teams who have given us details on their project but more time is needed," he explains. "It’s about his future, so it’s really important what comes next after 2024.”

If all they do is press the young talents into the service of their GC or British riders on all stages who are not winning and not given their opportunities in line with their talent, its basically a waste of time and effort. Also due to the work put in, one is already tired even when the right opportunity comes along making it a non opportunity which leaves them open to failure but also cause them to doubt their talent and capability, thereby reducing their market value.

Ineos have only G and Rodriguez as a GT rider who could podium so the kiddies have a big chance in the near future. The interesting thing is Ineos seem to building a good classics/one day team.
Agree, with Sheffield, Turner, Pidcock, the Hayters, Tarling and Ganna there are some potential big wins. But I'm not sure if that's a good idea for a British team built on TdF wins.

Maybe Arensman will pan out. He has looked at times like a real talent.
 
Ineos only really care about their British talent. If I were Sheffield, I would flee that team as soon as possible. He could be a star somewhere else. Otherwise, he will just be pressed into doing grunt work for some washed up British rider.
Didn’t realise Ganna was British, someone should tell the Italian national team as he’s riding under the wrong flag.
 
How much Sir Jim & Sir Dave are going to be interested in pro-cycling, now that Sir Jim has bought (a part of) his childhood favourite soccer team, and it's going to take some more cash and lots of time to get them back to their glory days. With all the coming and going this year at Ineos it won't be a surprise if Sir Jim looks for a potential buyer next year, or a merger with another team.
