Degenkolb -> Lotto Soudal confirmed.
It’s not weird to not know him. He’s a 2nd year junior out of Contador’s development team and very likely to go pro with Ineos, skipping the U23s.Who? Are we still talking about new signings for Ineos? (lack of nesting of quotes is a bit of a nuisance here)
OK: his name has never been mentioned in the Ineos thread, and a quick Google search revels no source as confident that it will happen as you are, but thanks for the heads up.It’s not weird to not know him. He’s a 2nd year junior out of Contador’s development team and very likely to go pro with Ineos, skipping the U23s.
Yeah, because a person would go and look at their roster for next year after the news of them signing another rider.You talked about them being old after the news of Degenkolb joining.
Ah, okay.Yeah, because a person would go and look at their roster for next year after the news of them signing another rider.
I also wrote old within " ", and what is considered "old" is another discussion.
For years it felt like there were only about ten professional British riders, but all ten were high quality riders. I wondered if I'd rather be British and have only three riders to support at GTs, but they were all likely to win a stage or the race overall, or be Italian/French/Spanish and have 40 riders to support, but few were likely to have any success. Now the generation that must have been inspired by Sir Bradley is coming through and the Brits are no longer limited to a few riders.Ben Tulett will turn pro on the road with Corendon - Circus next year.
Current double junior cyclocross world champion.
Did I just read an Irishman saying that it rains a lot in the UK?Cross has always been popular in the UK. Their winters are basically prototype cyclocross weather. They've never got the Olympic money the way track suddenly did ahead of the 2012 Olympics etc, but they've always just kept it going steady.
