    mjr Comfy armchair to one person & a plank to the next

    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!

    Any of her family involved?

    If so, they could call the team “Multi-Storey Racing”^_^

    Not a transfer as such, but not worth starting a new thread for either:

    Wilier-Triestina have announced the name of their new kit supplier for 2018...

    Pissei

    No, seriously.

    Shocking state of affairs where he has only just managed to find a contract. Quality rider.

    Maybe the current environment has changed priorities for some teams. With the introduction of relegation and a move from only 5 riders to all riders counting towards World Tour points totals, then a few days publicity in a spotty jersey doesn't cut it. Daniel only scored 5 ranking points all season and they came on the final day for 43rd place in a weak field at Guangxi. He was one of the poorest contributors for the team, despite being one of the higher paid riders. He did lose some racing through injury, although still had 43 race days at World Tour level. If you ignore the low level African races, he has only won 1 race in the last 6 years...a third tier one day event in 2013. With team sizes reducing significantly, teams appear to be more selective.
