    And still they haven't formed a Women's team. I thought in the past the bahaviour of Sutton would have been the reason, but he's been long gone.

    Poor branding if nothing else .

    Well they have one of the greatest women on their team, albeit the off-road side. She has mentioned maybe making a return to some road racing, probably after the Paris Olympics......At the moment, it would seem likely be with somebody else.....

    Would love to see PFP have another crack at the road.

    Does PFP feature in person on the G (Watts occuring?) podcast?

    Yes, as of a few days ago. I only listened to the first few minutes...

    (She can properly hold her own I must say, she'd have been a good valley girl in another life... ;) )

    It seems like Ineos are going to get a minority stake in Manchester United, but with control over activities. It may come full circle. There is a clear influence from Alex Ferguson to Dave Brailsford.

    As a fan of a rival team, I hope they fail miserably.

    I wouldn't class myself as a fan, but do take an interest in them. They are an absolute shambles at the moment!

    I could be wrong, but I don't think that they'll miss him much. He showed a bit of promise in 2022, but was way off the pace at the Vuelta that year and, bar his national champs win at the beginning of the year, was virtually anonymous this past season.

    Hopefully he will flourish at Jayco.

    Agree with you though, he showed promise, but maybe a move back home will re-invigorate him.

    Thought this was old news. daniel_b of the GCN parish reported this on the 26th September: coincidence?

    He's been Australian champion for the last two years. But beyond that not a lot a part from a decent Tour of Norway in 2022.
    Ineos have just been signing a load of youngsters hoping a couple became stars. Several have done better so it makes sense for all parties if he wants to move.

    Listed to this last week, the word 'super' has never, in the history of time, sounded more appealing, she has the most incredible accent, above and beyond all other French accents.

    Good and interesting interview too, she comes across as very focussed, and really down to earth - seems to be a wonderful human being.

    That's pretty newsworthy if true.

    Wonder who they will get in instead, potentially look to one of the DS's?
