Ellisonde signs for Sky, two year deal.
Oh well I guess they pay well... Still weird as he doesn't seem like a domestique type and no way he's even in the top10 of the team hierarchy to even get into a break somewhere. Maybe he gets to leads in some oil race.

Regarding Rosa, I just hope they won't turn him into a bot, he's really entertaining, smart and attacking rider.
 
Surprising for me Sky haven't extended with Lopez and Puccio, Lopez was hands down his best domestique in La Vuelta while König was busy riding for a top-5 and eventually screwing it up. I also would've expected Puccio by now.

And whats up with Henao? PCS haven't listed him at Sky in 2017 either.

Both Lopez and Puccio were in the photo I posted of Sky's 2017 team.

see procyclingstats and take a look at Rosa´s GT results: domestique.
one day races results: good, won Milano Torino, got 2nd in Lombardia.
but GT DOMESTIQUE
or bot, call it as you like

he already said he´ll help in GT and go for his chances in 1 day races
same, same, same as Astana

I dont get the people moaning. he always worked for Aru, Landa, Nibali, as Astana.
but now no, it´s not good, oh poor Diego! he´ll have to slave for his captains....
:rolleyes:

Yeah 100%. He's gonna get the same portfolio as in Astana.
that´s it. but it´s outrage on twitter. many worried about his development. "they´ll ruin him at Sky..." while they praised him and were fine when he pulled for Aru Nibali and Landa and didnt give a flip about him "developing"...

Gazprom make Pavel Brutt their last signing. So no room for Petrov or Trofimov. I guess Petrov at 38 will retire. Apart from those two, Tosatto and Paulinho are the other Tinkoff riders without a future team, if I'm not mistaken.
I guess Trofimov has already a deal with another team, as well as Silin and Vorobyev. It would not make any sense that Gazprom did not sign them if being available, especially Trofimov.

Yeah, I wonder who. Maybe Lokosphinx are moving to pro conti?
Furthermore I note Evtushenko, Kolobnev, Kurbatov, Kustadinchev, Manakov and Stash are apparently all leaving Gazprom.

So was Sergio. They've all signed new contracts which just haven't been announced yet.

How are you surprised by the fact that people judge according to their own ways of thinking? Are we supposed to know your way of thinking before you make it clear?

If it was only me who misunderstood you, then I could appologise you. But when multiple of other people came with the same interpretation, then it shows that maybe your post wasn't clear enough and you share at least part of the blame for inefficient communication.
I am not surprised. Nice example again :)

It doesn't make opinion more truthful when more people share it.

Hirt rode for 2 WT development teams and did not get promoted. Including a team with a Czech owner.

Maybe there is more to it than some irrational anti-Czech bias
Have you even read the previuos post? It was clearly said it's thing of structure, which I agree.

But some people want see nationalism everywhere, right?
