"Only" Bardet and Latour leaving? That's like 2 out of their 3 best riders.Feel like AG2R might have gotten a bigger budget for next year, with Citroen co-sponsoring next year, if Im not mistaken.
Signing a slew of riders and only really Bardet (?) and Latour (?) leaving. Definitely a shift.
Sarreau and Touze signed for next year now also.
Van Avermaet is so far the only big signing confirmed and Jungels is another one rumoured. That's not bad but unless they have another big one in their pocket, they'll end up being much weaker in the GC department and that's certainly not good when they don't have a top sprinter either! Very strong for classics but the cycling season is so much more than that.
