Why shouldn't Spam Bemmett lead out Mak Cavendosh for Bota? I'm sure Patrick LaFargue is kicking himself for not taking that opportunity at Quackstep.

Anyone know if Pidcock is on the start line? It's not like he's ever needed a warm up race before but it'd be cool to see him out there before the worlds.
Yes, he was on the list of 3 GB riders for the MTB Euros tweeted by British Cycling yesterday. He was on his MTB recently, as seen on instagram....

I saw that on twitter too.... but if you click the link, it takes you to an article about Bob Jungels.

Yes, I see that.... but given the screw ups that have happened in the motor racing world with premature driver announcements in the last few weeks, it is odd to see it blasted on twitter with a link that doesn't take you to anything official. I hope it is true and I hope they give him a team strong enough to get him to the line next July. After watching the GB nationals race, he was clearly on amazing form this summer, seems like a HUGE oppurtunity was missed.

Edit :: oh shit... I went back and looked again... damn, the name spoof got me.

I'd love to see Cav at EF Cannondale. That kit, the bike, the way work social media. Would be great match.

If Lance tells Cav anyone but Cannondale then I really hope he ends up at Cannondale.

I'm guessing Lance said that because of his deep love and friendship with JV😂

Most likely... I also do genuinely believe that Lance and George are friends with Cav and want to see him break the record and want him to land on a team that will not only give him the oppurtunity, but also the be willing to commit the team to make it happen.

but yes, it is most likely the JV thing... hahaha

I wonder why they skewed the whole season later. Almost like they wanna guarantee a wet MSA :P
