    McNulty to UAE confirmed. 3 year contract.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    Viviani off Morkov’s Xmas card list then

    Viviani at Gazzetta to his transfer to Cofidis: "We went long (with the renewal negotiations). Not us. Then Alaphilippe signed and things changed. I am just sorry that who will take my place will find Morkov"

    I think that's a bad translation. I think he means he's sorry that he can't have Morkov with him because he's so good... As in, he's sorry his rivals get to benefit from Morkov and not him.

    That sounds complementary to me. Feeling sorry that a rival will have Morkov not him.

    Given how Morkov dropped Viviani off yesterday, I have no doubt that Viviani is saying that he's sorry Morkov's gonna be leading out someone else next year...

    I read that totally wrong then. I did think it was a bit harsh :lol:

    Landa confirmed to be joining Bahrain Merida

    As good as confirms Nibali to Trek then.

    Brian Holm put him in his all-time sprint team too. Outrageous lead-out yesterday.

    Looks like he'll be leading out Sam Bennett too - if so it's the makings of a fantastic pairing.

    Bennett to Quickstep would be a fantastic move for both parties.

    Surprised at hearing about Gabs Cullaigh being snapped up by Movistar but fair play, hope it goes well for the lad

    Mikkel Bjerg has signed for UAE

    Mikkel Bjerg rumoured to be on his way to Ineos. He's already a two time U23 TT world champion which is rather impressive, particularly considering that he's still only 20.

    Yeah, he was mentioned as on his way to Ineos in this post on VR, a couple of weeks agao:
    Signings: Carapaz, McNulty, Bjerg, Campanaerts, Pidcock, Hayter and Donovan

    Departures: Poels (Sunweb), De La Cruz (Movistar), Elissonde (Trek), Rosa (Androni), Kiryienka, Knees and Golas (Retired).

    This has been 100% wrong thus far.

    Disappointed in this, as UAE seems to be ..... a bit censored .

    Mind you, with Ellingworth that could change.

    Doubt he'll make much difference from a few hundred kms away up the Persian Gulf in Bahrain tbh

    Wonder if Ineos have a relationship with UAE for developing preparing riders what with Ganna and now Bjerg, probably not

    Marginal gains. Extremely marginal. :oops:

    Doubly disappointed now.

    This has been 100% wrong thus far.

    So three of the supposed signings; McNulty, Bjerg and Donovan have signed elsewhere.

    Donovan has signed for Team Sunweb, as has Italian sprinter Alberto Dainese.

    That's the reason I didn't post it 2 weeks ago, only after DC brought it up.

    Wouldn’t be a’Total’ surprise, lower level French teams seem to be mopping up a few decent riders

    'Lower level teams' (TDE, Cofidis) are World Tour next year with bigger budgets and aspirations
