It’s a shame that the domestic calender is so poor. How early do they move to Europe?

Jorgenson moved to Europe to join AG2R's developmental team two years ago. He was trying to get over sooner. There's an interview with him where he talks about how far behind US riders are when they get to Europe. He had spent most of a year before he got that AG2R development team contract racing in Europe and how much more improvement he was able make in his racing in Europe. He said something about two or three races racing in the US = one year racing in Europe as far as development goes.

I believe he went out of his way to learn French too in order to integrate into the team.

Obviously some of that is the level is higher/deeper, but also because in the USA you might race a few tough races, and then have two weeks off, then a tough race and a month off, and then a crit or two... In Euro, its a hard races every weekend with some midweek thrown in for extra punishment.
