So we have had Nico Roche leaving Sky for BMC and now the shock news that Sagan and his entourage are going to Bora Hansgrohe (all the more reason to have that kitchen makeover now).
In less exciting news Carlos Verona is leaving Etixx to go to OBE mid season, but Marcel's lead out man Fabio Sabatini has signed on again.
2017 is shaping up!

And the creation of Bahrain-Meridea Pro-Cyling too. With the 'backing' of the Bahrain govt/royalty there may be enough fire power/purchasing power to challenge Team 'Death Star' Sky? bike

Let's hope so, and Orica are beginning to look like a GT team too.

Michael Matthews goes to Giant-Alpecin and Orica replace him with Roger Kluge (glad to see he has a team now that IAM has folded)
