Yeah well people are quick to judge. Anyway. Tiago Antunes from SEG to Efapel.If I recall correctly he tried to claim that he’d actually insulted Reza in a non racist way, but somehow his abuse was misinterpreted as racism. I don’t think anyone found that particularly credible.
There must surely be some fluctuation in the number of riders who fit that description who are good enough and available in a small country. Even in Denmark, which produces quite a lot of talented riders. Denmark has a lot of WT pros and three Conti teams. There may simply not be as many riders who fall between those two levels this year.It sucks pretty hard that a team supposedly about developing danish cyclists and in particular taking talented riders that don't get deals with WT teams after U23 age has so far signed nine completely mediocre guys from other countries for next year.
They'll ride for the development team at club level.Caja Rural announced today the signing of Carlos Garcia and Alberto Serrano.
Good news. A pity this wasn’t sorted earlier without the hassle. After all, rider and team did very well by each other for his pro career to date.
Maybe this just doesn’t translate well from the German, but it doesn’t sound here like they’re giving Bennett much credit for winning a metric boatload of races for them, but are happy to claim all the credit for “developing Sam into one of the best sprinters.”Over the last six years, BORA - hansgrohe developed Sam Bennett into one of the best sprinters in the peloton. Against this background it however became more and more difficult to align the team’s and rider’s goals.
It’s a bit weird. What were they expecting? That once UCI arbitration held that his statement that he intended to extend his contract was enforceable that Bennett would just say, ok then I don’t mind spending more of my peak years playing third fiddle? I had been hoping to be the lead sprinter on the strongest team in the world but it’s ok now I’m looking forward to hardly getting to sprint again at the Vuelta?It says exactly the same in german. The team seems to be really pissed.
Those are good signings, particularly Vakoc should be very usefulCorendon - Circus will have anice team next year : besides MVDP the team signed Modolo, Vakoc

nothing on PCS but Nieuwsblad seems to be sure about it...
It's all about getting invites to races, by signing these riders they'll get a programme that they can use to market their U23 riders.It sucks pretty hard that a team supposedly about developing danish cyclists and in particular taking talented riders that don't get deals with WT teams after U23 age has so far signed nine completely mediocre guys from other countries for next year.
