What do we know so far, only hours into the transfer window? Well mostly confirmations of stuff we pretty much already knew but there are some nuggets there too:
The Peter Sagan rumor was true. He goes to Bora and predictably brings with him Maciej Bodnar Michael Kolar and Erik Baska. Also brother Juraj comes along for the ride, imagine that.
The other big classics move is John Degenkolb moving to Trek and bringing Koen de Kort with him. This adds further excitement to their already interesting classics lineup. Can't decide if it is a great move or if it is looking like overcrowding with similar riders?
Picking up Juan Jose Lobato from Movistar. Not an obious move but as some have pointed out, Freire and Rabo made a good combo and Lobato is a similar type rider. (2 year contract)
More Danes is the motto as they sign Michael Valgren for the classics and Jesper Hansen for mountain support. Interestingly they keep their Italian focus by bringing on Moreno Moser and Oscar Gatto too. Making Astana look all the more like "old Liquigas"? (all 2 year contracts)
