Few weeks back Het Nieuwsblad reported that Wallays was heading to Cofidis, they made it sound like a done deal.Wallays & Maes should be interesting for the classics department of any French/Belgian PCT team. Vital Concept, Alpecin, Bingoal... they should not have any problem finding a team.
Van der Sande is also interesting, he could get good results and points in lesser french & belgian races.
I can see Armee at Wanty. Marczinsky might get an option in a Spanish PCT (he lives in Granada and could be an option for Kometa. He would also be an upgrade on any Burgos rider)
For the other riders it will surely be difficult to find a professional contract.
Cool I must have missed that. They will almost certainly do a better job with it too I don't know how a team could make those orange kits as invisible as CCC didCould be, but Circus Wanty Gobert acquired the World Tour license from CCC. That means there's less space left in the WT.
That also means another team that will automatically be on the startlist of the biggest stage races, with nothing better than Taaramae to show.Could be, but Circus Wanty Gobert acquired the World Tour license from CCC. That means there's less space left in the WT.
Well... It seems that Acquadro is the agent of ALL Spanish young cyclists...Just you wait. In eight years' time their mission will have been completed and Valverde will be the only Spaniard left on the team.
Maybe Ruben Fernandez is client of Acquadro?Never understood why Movistar let him go. Yeah he was a massive disappointment, but he is good enough to be a strong support rider in the mountains. Maybe he wanted a fresh start and more freedom.
The budget is increased and they will sign more riders. One can only hope they're high profile.Unless, of course, they're gonna start announcing that they have signed a ton of high-profile riders.
