Robin Carpenter explains his sideways move to Rally cycling, blames 30 fewer World Tour rides http://www.velonews.com/2017/12/news/robin-carpenter-rallies-for-new-challenges-in-europe_452996
Even more obscure than Robin Carpenter...
Just heard that Ollie has signed for Team Wiggins next season. Woo!
Guess that means he'll be riding alongside Tom Pidcock, whose signing for Team Wiggins has also been officially confirmed today (they're the same age - Ollie is older than Tom by a few months).
If you've not seen it yet, find the clip of Tom Pidcock's tour series winning bike change. It only took him a jiffy!

Astana newcomers: Omar Fraile, Yevgeniy Gidich (Kazakhstan), Jan Hirt (Czech Republic), Hugo Houle (Canada), Davide Villella (Italy), and Magnus Cort Nielsen (Denmark). http://www.velonews.com/2017/12/news/astana-remembers-scarponi-welcomes-six-new-riders-2018_453060
And that, kids, is why any aspiring young pro should spend their winter in Belgium riding cyclocross.
All the 2018 team colours
Not that much different..except maybe sky have gone from menacing black to pure snow white ?
And movie star are the negative sky. Still too much red, black and white, now joined by too much light blue. Credit to education first for picking something different... go on the cherries!
Alpecin have gone all West Ham.
Or Burnley, Aston Villa, Scunthorpe
I see that Sarah Storey has her own team now - Storey Racing
She's missed a trick there, should have called it Racing-Hi-Storey
Any of her family involved?
If so, they could call the team “Multi-Storey Racing”

Wilier-Triestina have announced the name of their new kit supplier for 2018...
Pissei-Willier ? Tut schoolboy humour.
