there's a long interview about Whelan's situation on SBS now, talking a bit about what went wrong so far, and so on:I hope it goes well for him.
That's what I'm wondering too. Is it because they still have to do a little bit of demotion before they can actually sign him?
Probably announced soon?What about Cees Bol?
“This year is very important for me, as I have to participate in the qualifying competitions to gain the necessary points to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris. As a preparation for track competitions, a road base is also needed, and our development team offers a simpler, but at the same time high-quality and convenient calendar, which suits me more than the WorldTour calendar, with which track competitions and, in particular, World Cups will overlap too often. Therefore, in agreement with the management of Astana Qazaqstan Team, I decided to spend 2023 together with our development team and, accordingly, Kazakhstan National Track Team”, – said Artyom Zakharov.
It's the Roman Kireyev treatment.Very good choice of Zakharov. In the Astana Development Team he won't be obliged to have those mammoth road seasons like he had in 2022 and 2021, with a crazy 21 and 23 race days, and will have the chance to focus in a smaller program which will allow him to focus more on the track.
Thankfully he has Vino as an understanding team leader, who understands that sometimes the good of the country comes first than the good of the team.
Surely his new team must have a bike in a larger size available.
