Ineos apparently have a 15% budget increase, who will they spend it on?
They need to replace Kiryienka so somebody who can TT/Climb.

So perhaps Nelson OLIVEIRA as a proven TT/Domestique.

Young guns? How about Mikkel Bjerg? (I hope NOT!)

Has Bjerg been rumored there, or did you just pull the name out of a hat? :confused:

Like so many throughout the team's history?

I know, you mean a world-champion level TTist who's willing to slaves to an early death in the climb, and can win a stage through breakaway in desperate hours. Only they can dream of such beast

On that note you'd think Tony Martin would be perfect for them

Deep market this year.

Looking at certain riders, Quick Step will attract attention. I could see Kittel heading to DD, think Ineos could look at Sam Bennett as De Panne showed they need a top flight guy at the end of the day. Dan Martin also has had interest from them in the past, as has Fulgsang.
Once a few riders start announcing where they are going/staying. It will create a domino effect I would assume.

It will be crazy for Bennett to consider Ineos - What GT would he ride ?
Which ever one Ineos take a break from GC wise, most likely the Vuelta.
Which is exactly why he is probably leaving Bora.
He has to really consider his options properly otherwise he will end up like Coquard (had option to join Quickstep) who wants to do TDF but his team gets rejected every time

Yeah, and then he pouts the rest of the season so he and the team shows nothing, and then they don't get invited next year and the cycle repeats itself.

Yeah, but Ineos is a step in the wrong direction too - just the other direction.

He would NEVER get on the squad, in any GT where the team had GC aspirations..... which is all of them, always..... because even if Froome/Thomas doesn't ride, there is Bernal, or Poels, or Kwiatkowski, or, or, or whoever wants to be the next big GT rider.

He also has to consider who Ineos is going to throw that extra cash after, that the new owner has promised in the press..... the most obvious targets would be the Yates brothers, given their nationality..... but they could also go "hey, let's buy Roglic, Evenepoel and Jungels", they all fit the mold ;)

The team being at every race, doesn't help if there is never room for a sprinter.... is my point :cool:

The only way he would ever make the team, would be if he was prepared to sacrifice himself like Kwiatkowski, to work his ass off every day there was no sprint, into the red every day.... and also losing a lot of weight so he can climb better..... and then.... how many sprints does he win?
 
They could be able to squeeze in Bennett in a Giro or Vuelta team I think though. He would also be able to race a lot of one-day races as their leader. Since there only seem to be a lot of talks of just riding the GTs...
