    Stage wins,one day races with Nibali.Hes a great rider for himself...so to speak.Hes also a "God" in Italy.Last year I was at Lomardia when Pinot won.Youd have swore it was Nibali,who came in second ! He was mobbed.

    Another Brit youngster from Wiggins Le Col, Mark Donovan, has signed for a World Tour team - Team Sunweb. Seems like our boys are in demand.

    Few signings for Sunweb.Still no news about Dumoulin
    Today it confirmed Belgian Tiesj Benoot is joining on a two-year deal from Lotto-Soudal, with whom he won Strade Bianche last year.

    Team Sunweb has also signed a number of other riders from development and WorldTour teams.

    Those new signings include: Nico Denz (AG2R La Mondiale), Jasha Sütterlin (Movistar Team), Thymen Arensman (SEG Racing Academy), Mark Donovan (Team Wiggins Le Col), Alberto Dainese (SEG Racing Academy).

    The squad has also extended the contracts of Michael Matthews and Søren Kragh Andersen; both to the end of 2021

    I love Danish pro-cyclists' names. To my ears, the middle names sound like prize-fighter nicknames.
    Soren "Kragh" Andersen, Lars "Ytting" Bak, Sven "Knuckles" Bjornsen. OK, I made the last one up.

    Dan Martin to ICA for 2 years. Wow.
    ICA are moving more and more close to World Tour status. I think they deserve it. They've done really well in recent seasons and keep getting better. I think it's actually quite a good move for Dan Martin.
