If rumours are true (and it seems highly likely) Bjarne Riis will tomorrow announce that he and Virtu Cycling are new co-owners of NTT Pro Cycling Team.

 

Danish rider Michael Carbel should also be joining the team.

 

Time for another "Africa's Team" comment, @heywoodu? :p

They seem to have now officially given up on the Africa's Team gimmick, although their announcements are still absolute pearls of total bullshit. Every single rider is announced as a huge addition to the team, someone with awesome results and so on....when in reality for example they have an 11th place in stage X of some random tour in China as best result :p

Ugh, why does it feel so predictable to have something like this in Minsk of all places? Maybe because the rest of Europe isn't interested :p 

 

Great by the way, now places with an excellent layout for a great road race but without a nearby track or mountainbike course or BMX track can't have the champs anymore. This sounds almost as stupid as the ISU's combined speed skating world championships..

I think that this new format will be used every 4/2 years.. so the other venue will host the "single" ECh (like in waterpolo)

Every four years, luckily. I hope they won't increase that to every two years..
