I believe here in the UK it is being shown by the BBC, with commentary by Chris Boardman. Can't remember where I saw it, but reasonably confident.

As you said, the BBC is televising the World Championships live, but it looks like it's just the Elite events, no Juniors or U23's :(


Thats because those races aren't televised at all, if I am not mistaken.

The negotiations failing had to do with Alonzo retaining ownership but not having much control over staffing and logistics over the first three years he was to "own" the team. That was one of the major conditions of the deal that he did not like among others.

Right, Alonso just wanted to buy them for the Worldtour license and create his own team. The team wanted to keep their jobs.

I don't blame him- Euskatel sucks. They're a joke and win almost nothing. They have 1 rider that isn't a reliable realistic GC hopeful and they have terrible results for their investment.

Agreed. Without the Alonso deal, the whole team is gone anyways. Not sure why they thought they were in a position to negotiate...

without Euskaltel and Vacansoleil there will be 17 WT teams in 2014. Sojasun folds too

Net-App-Endura, MTN-Qhubeka, IAM, Cofidis, Europcar to get wild cards for 2014 Tour de France?

Drapac, AIS, and hopefully Huon-Genesys to get wild cards for the TourDownUnder?

surprised and abit dismayed to hear that De-Gendt doesn't have a ride for next year?
he's a pretty talented guy with age on his side. can put in a decent TT and climb pretty well. perhaps not a top notch GC contender, but would make a good dark horse or a pretty capable co-leader/super domestique

methinks any of the smaller squads with ambitions ( IAM cycling?) or teams wanting to build a GC squad would do well to snap him up. lotto belisol and omega-pharma come to mind.

Linus Gerdemann was also left without a team in 2013 (but unlike De-Gendt, Linus was informed of this in 2013, not 2012, so it was already too late to pursue a new team). He'll be back with MTN Qhubeka for 2014. I hope De-Gendt doesn't have to wait a year like Linus had to.

I highly doubt TdG will have to wait a year, that would be ridiculous. I think his biggest problem is that he doesn't really have an identifiable niche except the madman long breakaway which won't work anymore because everyone now knows not to give him too much leash. I reckon he should focus on the hillier classics and just being a good super domestique.

Linus' issue was Linus

After reading the Garmin piece on VN on how they're reshaping their team, and that they still have 2 roster spots free...I can't help but think TdG will end up there.

I would approve of TdG going to one of my favorite teams. :thumbup:

The actual team manager of Vacansoleil is trying to have enough money for keep De Gendt as well as Leukemans and Marcato.

With Vacansoleil, Euskaltel and Sojasun closing down, it's gonna be a hard time for many riders.
