* new WorldTour race for 2017

Be interesting how it plays out with the upgraded  races and how many invites are still available for local teams at the WT events (the new races do not need to invite all the World Tour Teams).

Surprised that Turkey made the cut given the politics and instability in the region.

San sebastian, ridelondon and Start of pologne over the 1 weekend?

They seem to have gone crazy like me in a bookshop picking books, then get home and wonder why you added them

Wasn't their talk about reducing the world tour calendar with the reforms?

Also bad for continental teams who saw some of the races as good opportunities for TV coverage in their coumtries like California, dwars, het nieuwsblad

altho with Omloop, Dwaars and SB.. i'm happy these races are added..

there's a bad smell in the air from adding Turkey, Qatar and UAE  - following the money basically.

California i can kind of understand..

...Cadel Evans race?????????

They've also neglected to solve the clash of P-N and T-A... or is that expected in 2 years time?

I always thought that was a deliberate clash.
Depending on how many hills you wanted to climb and what you like for breakfast.

I'm sure your right as I can't remember it any other way.

So what is it :- TOC upgraded.
Next is the Giro being slotted even earlier, in say the exact former Vuelta dates, so that the TOC can have it's own important dates.

What no De Panne 3 day. ??

on the subject, innrring has this http://inrng.com/2016/08/lampre-china-italy/

i do like the comment about

Quote:
Rather presumptuously the photo includes the UCI World Tour logo but like all teams it will have to be vetted for 2017 by the UCI’s Licence Commission to make sure it’s got the budget, contracts and a strong enough roster to merit a place.


Cyclingnews likes referring to the bahrain project as being a worldtour team for example http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/c...to-worldtour-with-bahrain-merida/

------

anyway, i saw this to do with a race at the other end (the rás)

Quote:
They are looking for B&Bs throughout the region business or people who may be willing to share their homes with riders & their team members overnight to get in touch.
with 25 km of a possible stage finish town

Though I guess this is standard thing for a lot of smaller races

Having had the opportunity to see the Tour of Turkey at first hand, I was super impressed with the organisation etc and it is a truly beautiful race that in many ways deserves to have WT status - mind you, Matt Rendell was in charge then Wink

First time I've ever been around cyclists letting their hair down, will never forget travelling back to hotel at 3am for flight at 5am with the Etixx team...

All that aside, Cookson has done his usual inadequate job on this - instead of streamlining we have the same old bloat. He  has been immeasurably worse for cycling than McQuaid

Seems unlikely if your regular assessments of McQuaid through the Armstrong comeback era were accurate.

Still a lot of black being the new black.  Lotto Soudal and FDJ for me...

Thanks Huw, forgot about that.  Good to see some racing, although I always enjoy the break.  I am afraid I await the real season in two months.  However I have heard that the TV channel of l'Equipe has moved up a level this year and bought up the rights to, for example, the Giro.  So I get to see it, finally, in HD.  they are doing a few other Italian races the French have neglected for years as well.  Should make a big improvement for those of us in France.

Thanks.
Things might make sense this year when Europe starts. (ie, I mean the season)

February 12, 2017, Laigueglia, Liguria, Road - 1.HC
Well this season opener has lost it's grand position because the big Pro names no longer take part.
Dam the UCI for clashing the Oman money fest with this event.

This week the result was.
1 Fabio Felline (Ita) Italy 4:54:01
2 Romain Hardy (Fra) Fortuneo - Vital Concept 0:00:25
3 Mauro Finetto (Ita) Delko Marseille Provence KTM
4 Matteo Trentin (Ita) Italy
5 Cyril Gautier (Fra) AG2R La Mondiale

Next week they do it again with Oman and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
