We've heard rumours re Bahrain but no word from Ellingworth

Any more rumours :roll: ?

    He's riding the London 6 Day on his BMC bike isnt he ? So maybe can't announce until after that is over.

    yep & notably made that point himself today on twitter I thought :) Id say its done deal, but Ive been expecting him to move there for the last 2 seasons at least, so what do I know

    Bahrain named six riders that they were picking up a few days ago. Cavendish was not amongst them.

    But Elingworth runs Bahrain and Cavendish is his golden boy. There's no way Cav will be sans contract. And I expect the that Elligworth can see Cav's DS potential and will get him on board somehow.

    If he's not a DS at Bahrain by 2022, Rick Chasey will eat my hat

    I can't see him becoming a DS. I'm sure he'll be involved somehow, but not on such a full time nature.

    I thought it was a done deal esp. with Maclaren on board

    He's too rich to be a full time DS.

    won't be a DS. would probably do well at the TV roles that he should be getting offered. his insight/ knowledge is still second to none.

    as for next year, hopefully its a signing of from all this cycling lark kind of year. expect a few wins in fish and chippers if he can be bothered/ is well enough.
  • Could imagine him going into coaching, either on track or as a road sprint coach.
    Interesting that he is doing Gent after the London6 next week, if he is fit/healthy enough for this then it is good prep for a season on the road next year.

    What, by riding his current team bike? Seems quite likely he'll go to Bahrain.

    A Newsboy cap (like they wear in Peaky Blinders, although it's De Niro in Godfather Part 2 that I'm copying)

    Ah very good. I was worried it was gonna be a trucker cap or some sort.

    No apologies for another Cav photo. Love this jersey

  • Quick, he's on a Cervelo again, he's going to Sunweb!
  • ridgeriderridgerider Posts: 2,843
    CN have him on a BMC in the Madison ... Perhaps it has different logos on each side.

    This must be what fake news looks like!

    Can anyone explain what Cav's jersey represents? Looks like half a GB flag but green gold
    and white?
  • kingstoniankingstonian Posts: 2,483
    They wore something very similar last year when he wasn't well enough to race, so the design isn't something specific to him.
  • It's an official British cycling jersey colourway, if red/white/blue isn't your thing. Kalas sell it somewhere I'm sure
