Has there been any discussion of Israel-Premier Tech signing Cav? Given their almost certain relegation, Cav would be their ticket to getting a TDF invite.

I edited my post (one before yours). It is not happening says Hincapie. Of course that might not mean anything, but still, they seem to be quite close ...

Cyclocross season getting more and more interesting this year.
Some great surprises from many young ladies makes for great show.
On the men's side, a few guys that knocked on the podium door for many seasons are doing great, even winning this year. Huge favorites getting back at it, next few races will be exciting to watch.

Yesterday's races were fantastic! I was happy to see Puck finally win her first Elite World Cup. Tom was oh so close to a win in the men's race except for that crash.

Not to mention the fact that he stormed back to the front from last place in a little over a lap after dropping his chain at the start. Apparently he also broke a boa dial on one of his shows in the crash on the cobbles, so his shoe was close to getting pulled off his foot evertime he had to run though the deep muc!

So pleased for Puck! Quite a few podiums but not the top step. She's the future of womens CX IMO. Great rider

Still pulling for Cav, but it's looking bleak, eh?

In a podcast with Matt Stephen there was Museeuw saying he signed with B&B and Cav came out nervously "no no no! not signed yet anything! dont bring out rumours".
Yeah it's not a great position especially as he needs a few guys for make a serious project.

So with SRAM making a big push in 2023 and bringing Jumbo-Visma into their portfolio of sponsored WT teams, along with Trek and Movistar, will we finally see Time pedals return to the WT peloton?

SRAM purchased Time's pedal business about two years ago and while we see them at the pointy end of the women's peloton, we've yet to see them feature on any of SRAM's sponsored men's teams.

Human Powered Health (men and women) used Time pedals last year (alomg with Sram groups) but I checked briefly now and it seems the majority of them are now on Speedplay
