    Am I right in thinking that the points a rider earns can be used for both his old, and new teams - when it's being calculated?

    It's being banded round that one team will **actually** drop out of the world tour for 2018, so there's bound be some cheques written this year

    Ben Swift got £500k for essentially finishing 3rd in the MSR last year from Bahrain or UAE or wherever he went. I was under the impression that the new team got his WT points.

    UAE.

    The points may count for the new team's licence, but they still count for the old team for the season ranking.

    They keep changing the rules so who knows. The teams who fear relegation could strengthen in the next few months to stay clear in 2018 or save their cash in case they are not in trouble. If they are, they could spend in late 2018 and use their new improved 2019 rota to count rather than their under performing 2018 rota,

    Twitter is now predicting Landa to UAE Team Emirates and Quintana to either Sky or Astana.
    Astana more likely if any of it's true.

    I thought Aru was off to UAE but I forget where I heard that.

    ARU needs to move to a team with support around him for sure.
