The Week That Was...

Ian comments on the happenings in the world of cycling.

was planned. I'm not surrendering. However, to tell the truth, it was a nasty shock."


As we move into the later half of the season, we can probably expect to see a flurry of transfer activity as teams try to confirm their rosters for next year and the inaugural UCI Pro Tour.  Expected to be on the move is former mountain bike rider, Cadel Evans who was not selected to ride in this year?s Tour by his T-Mobile team.  ?If all goes well, I should have some news on what?s happening very shortly,? said Evans on his website, cadel.com.au.  ?It?s good to know that there are a few teams who are still interested in me.  And although it?s too early to explain any real details, I can report that I will not be working on my dad?s farm next year, that?s one thing I know for sure!?   Evans is expected to line up alongside fellow Aussies Robbie McEwen, Nick Gates and Henk Vogels in the new Omega Pharma-Lotto team.


Following his successful second place finish at this year?s Tour de France, German Champion Andreas Kl?den is finding himself in high demand. Kl?den?s manager, former pro Tony Rominger, told DPA that,  "there are offers from several teams in front of him. They will be examined. But I think that he has also obtained an agreement with Walter Godefroot in T-Mobile and will ride with them next year."
