Van Aert could still be sanctioned if he signs for a new team

Posted: 13:36, 16 Nov 2018

Contrary to assertions from his lawyer, Wout van Aert is not completely in the clear to sign for a new team in 2019. The UCI has, as was reported on Thursday, granted the cyclo-cross world champion permission to negotiate with other teams after his bitter split from Veranda’s Willems-Crelan, but the governing body may still take action against him should he lose the legal case against his former team in the Belgian courts. At lunchtime on Thursday, Van Aert’s lawyer, Walter Van Steenbrugge, told Belgian news agency Belga that they had received the 'green light' from the UCI for the rider to complete a transfer to a new team before December 31. Van Aert was signed to Veranda’s Willems-Crelan until the end of 2019 but he ‘unilaterally terminated’ his contract in September after voicing his displeasure at the team’s attempted mergers, first with Aqua Blue Sport and then with Roompot-Nedelandse Loterij. Sniper Cycling, the holding company that owns the Veranda’s team, filed a lawsuit for breach of contract, and threatened to block a move to a new team in 2019 unless financial compensation was received. Van Aert, keen to bring forward his 2020 move to LottoNL-Jumbo, refused to settle, and on Thursday his lawyers received a letter from the UCI that they claimed paved the way for a clean break from Sniper. Seen by Cyclingnews, the letter does state that Van Aert can sign for another team, but also that the UCI could take action further down the line, with the governing body essentially awaiting the outcome of the lawsuit.  "Pending a ruling in the Belgian courts on the validity of the motives for termination put forward by the rider, with the very existence of the termination of the contract not being in question, the UCI could not oppose the rider signing for another professional continental team, that being on the condition that it occurs within the transfer window,” states the letter from the UCI.  "We therefore draw your attention to the fact that the rider must have been signed by a professional continental road cycling team between now and December 31, in accordance with article 2.16.041 a and b of the UCI regulations. "Please also note that the UCI will closely follow this case and reserves the possibility of bringing disciplinary proceedings, as set out in the UCI regulations, against all parties involved, in the event that the Belgian courts judge that the rider breached his contract."ADVERTISEMENT While the letter refers to Van Aert signing for a Professional Continental team, Steenbrugge confirmed that his understanding was the this also applies to WorldTour teams. Contacted by Cyclingnews, Sniper Cycling’s lawyers rejected assertions from Van Aert’s lawyers that the UCI had given the ‘green light’ for Van Aert to walk away from Sniper. "The news given by Van Aert’s lawyer is incomplete and misleading," said Rudi Desmet. “It’s not a green light. It’s an amber light, maybe. Basically, any team that wants to take him runs the risk of disciplinary sanctions. "From an ethical point of view, if a team wants to contract a rider who has breached his contract, they are saying to their own riders: 'if you are not happy just invent a reason to breach you’re contract and you can walk away'. That would be devastating to the trust of sponsors to engage in long-term commitments." The case reached the Belgian labour courts last month and is currently in the evidence-gathering phase, with a resolution not expected until October or November next year. By that point, Van Aert could in theory have a full WorldTour road season under his belt, but he, his agent, and his new team could still be hit with a fine from the UCI if the Belgian courts rule in favour of Sniper. The UCI regulations state that a team or its paying agent that “approaches or engages, albeit conditionally, a rider from a UCI WorldTeam or another UCI Professional Continental team without the prior agreement of the current paying agent” will be subject to a fine. If this is a WorldTour team, the fine ranges from CHF 30,000 to 500,000, while if it’s a Professional Continental team the fine ranges from CHF 30,000 to 300,000. The regulations also state that ‘individual licence-holders involved in such practices' are liable to a fine anywhere from CHF 3,000 to 50,000 if the rider is signing for a WorldTour team, and up to CHF 30,000 if it’s a Pro Conti team. On top of that, the new team would also have to pay compensation to the old team "equivalent to the amount of the remuneration for the period of the contract with the current paying agent remaining to run, but no less than six months' salary". Van Aert’s representatives, however, dismissed the threat of disciplinary proceedings from the UCI. "The decision is very clear. At the end of the letter they mentioned they would follow the case, and that if we were giving false elements then they could eventually review the case, but there’s no concrete point that would give us any fear concerning that decision. It’s a classic expression," Steenbrugge told Cyclingnews. "The decision was very clear and does not give one per cent of doubt concerning the future of Wout Van Aert." Steenbrugge is convinced Van Aert was treated unacceptably by the Veranda’s Willems-Crelan team, though he has not publicly revealed details of the specific incident that led the rider to terminate his contract. Sniper’s lawyers insist there was no wrongdoing and claim Van Aert doesn’t have evidence to back up his allegations. "From the beginning, his lawyer said ‘we have proof’, so I requested they show this proof in writing. Until now, we have not seen the proof," said Desmet. "They say in the newspapers that they have proof so why have they not shown me that proof? I must assume there is no proof." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com

Gerrans to work for Goldman Sachs following retirement

Posted: 12:21, 16 Nov 2018

Just under a month after he hung up his racing wheels, Simon Gerrans has announced his post-retirement plans. In a video on social media, the Australian said that he would be taking up an internship at the investment bank Goldman Sachs. Gerrans announced in August that the 2018 season would be his last as a professional bike rider. He had started his career in 2005 after turning professional with AG2R La Mondiale, following a stint as a stagiaire with the team the previous year. He has since ridden with Credit Agricole, Team Sky and Orica-GreenEdge. He spent his final season with BMC Racing and rode his final race at the Japan Cup at the end of October.ADVERTISEMENT Gerrans is a past winner of Milan-San Remo and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and has won stages in all three Grand Tours. He said that the internship would be a big change for him but something that he’s excited to take on. "It’s been a couple of weeks since my last race as a professional bike rider so I thought that it was time to fill everybody in on my plans. I’m really excited to announce that I’m going to be joining Goldman Sachs in their London office on their Securities division on an athlete internship," Gerrans explained. "It’s going to be a big change from being a professional cyclist to working in banking and financial services but it’s a transition that I’m really excited about. I’d like to thank my friends and family and everybody who sent their well wishes over these past couple of months since I announced that I finishing up my cycling career."

Mitchelton-Scott finalise 25-rider roster for 2019

Posted: 01:00, 16 Nov 2018

The Mitchelton-Scott men's team have finalised a roster of 25 riders for the coming season, rejuvenating their line-up with a number of young signings and older departees, while continuing their increasing focus on Grand Tours. Svein Tuft, 41, is leaving for US Pro Conti team Rally Cycling, while 32-year-olds Roman Kreuziger and Roger Kluge are off to Dimension Data and Lotto Soudal, respectively. Meanwhile, 40-year-old Mat Hayman, winner of the 2016 Paris-Roubaix, will continue into 2019 but will retire immediately after the Tour Down Under in January. The team are saying goodbye to 24-year-old Caleb Ewan, 23-year-old Robert Power - along with 26-year-old Carlos Verona - but are injecting youth into the squad with the signing of four neo-pros: Robert Stannard, Callum Scotson, Nicholas Schultz, and Edoardo Affini. The average age will drop from 29.4 to 27.6.ADVERTISEMENT "We are losing some experienced riders from the team but every team needs to regenerate and we are in a growing phase as well. We have our established leaders, and that is clear, but we are also thinking ahead to back those guys up for the longer-term goals as well as short term," said head directeur sportif Matt White. "We've got some really exciting young talent coming into the team and the average age of our team has dropped. These young talents come from different facets of our sport as well, from time trial specialists to climbers to developing classics riders. I am really happy with the final make up of our group, our future looks very exciting." Ewan's departure is the latest evidence of the team's focus on Grand Tour titles, after Michael Matthews and Simon Gerrans also left the team in recent years. The sprinter won stages in the Vuelta a España and Giro d'Italia in his early years with the team but has been unable to make his debut at the Tour de France, voicing his displeasure at being scrapped from the team's plans for this year's edition. Edoardo Affini (ITA, 22) - new signing Michael Albasini (SUI, 37) Jack Bauer (NZL, 33) Sam Bewley (NZL, 31) Brent Bookwalter (USA, 34) - new signing Esteban Chaves (COL, 28) Luke Durbridge (AUS, 27) Alex Edmondson (AUS, 24) Tsgabu Grmay (ETH, 27) - new signing Jack Haig (AUS, 25) Lucas Hamilton (AUS, 22) Michael Hepburn (AUS, 27) Damien Howson (AUS, 26) Daryl Impey (RSA, 33) Chris Juul-Jensen (DEN, 29) Cameron Meyer (AUS, 30) Luka Mezgec (SLO, 30) Mikel Nieve (SPA, 34) Nick Schultz (AUS, 24) - new signing Callum Scotson (AUS, 22) - new signing Dion Smith (NZL, 25) - new signing Robert Stannard (AUS, 20) - new signing Matteo Trentin (ITA, 29) Adam Yates (GBR, 26) Simon Yates (GBR, 26) You can read more at Cyclingnews.com

New to the team in 2019 will be US collegiate track national omnium champion Cade Bickmore; 2017 and 2018 Tour de L’Abitibi winner Riley Sheehan; Ronde des Vallées winner Andrew Vollmer; and Costa Rican climbing phenom Gabriel Rojas.ADVERTISEMENT "These four guys really stood out to me," Creed said. "Rojas killed it this year, finishing second in the 1-2 category of the Tour of the Gila as a junior rider. Cade’s track experience will bring more firepower to our team’s sprinting game, while Andrew's and Riley’s experience in Europe will serve them well in the big US stage races." Riders returning from the 2018 squad include Gage Hecht, who won a stage the Colorado Classic and took national U23 titles in the time trial and criterium.

Eritrean rider Merhawi Kudus, who first competed in the race in 2012 and took his first UCI victory there, is expected to lead the Astana roster.

Werner and Noble dominate top of US Pro CX standings

Posted: 21:11, 15 Nov 2018

Kerry Werner (Kona Maxxis Shimano) and Ellen Noble (Trek Factory Racing CX) continue their strangleholds on USA Cycling's season-long Pro CX calendar heading into a pair of events this weekend. Noble has finished on the podium in all 11 of her elite women's Pro CX races so far this season, including taking seven victories. A silver medalist at the recent Pan-American Championships in Ontario, Canada, and winner in last weekend's Pro CX race in Massachusetts, the Northampton International, she has a total of 613 Pro CX points. Rebecca Fahringer (Kona Maxxis Shimano), Noble's nearest rival, is 179 points in arrears, while third-placed Maghalie Rochette (CXFever-Specialized) is another nine points back. Fourth and fifth place are also closely packed together with all but Noble. Sunny Gilbert (Van Dessel Factory Team) is in fourth with 385 points and Katie Keough (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld) is fifth at 376.ADVERTISEMENT In the elite men's standings, Werner's 596 points give him a healthy 180-point advantage over runner-up Tobin Ortenblad (Santa Cruz-Donkey Label Racing), who has 416 points. Third-placed Curtis White (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld) is another nine points back at 407, with Lance Haidet (Donnelly Sports) another 30 points back for fourth at 377. Fifth-placed Jamey Driscoll (Pivot Maxxis-Stans DNA Cycling) has 369 points. With 31 races in the books, the 42-race series continues this weekend with a pair of C2 events in Indiana and New York. The Major Taylor Cross Cup will have two races on Saturday and Sunday at the Indy Cycloplex in Indianapolis, while the Supercross Cup in Suffern, New York, is ready for its 16th year overall and third year at the Rockland Community College.  After a break for Thanksgiving, the series returns the weekend of December 1 and 2 with the NBX GP of Cross in Warwick, Rhode Island, and the Resolution Cup in Dallas, Texas.

Groupama-FDJ confirm 28 riders for 2019

Posted: 20:55, 15 Nov 2018

Groupama-FDJ have confirmed their line-up for the 2019 season, with 28 riders on their roster. The number is the same as this year, with only a few small changes to the squad.  The French team have been quiet since the transfer window opened, choosing to solidify what they already had through a series of contract extensions. Many of those were for at least two seasons, so we’re unlikely to see many changes next winter either. Departing the team at the end of the season are Jeremy Roy, who is retiring after 16 years as a pro, Davide Cimolai, who is moving to Israel Cycling Academy, and Arthur Vichot, who is on his way to Vital Concept.ADVERTISEMENT Groupama-FDJ did not look too far for their replacements, with all three new signings coming from the BMC Racing set-up. Stefan Kung and Miles Scotson will strengthen their time trial department, while 24-year-old Kilian Frankiny is a promising climber. Once again, the crux of the team’s ambitions will be focused around Frenchmen and longtime FDJ riders Thibaut Pinot and Arnaud Démare. Pinot did not enjoy the success he’d hoped for in Grand Tours but still came away from 2018 with a lot to be happy about. The 28-year-old won the Tour of the Alps in April before a strong performance at the Giro d’Italia that was brought to a premature end by illness. He took the summer off before returning at the Tour de Pologne, where he finished third overall, and went on to win two stages of the Vuelta a España. He closed out his season with victory at Milano-Torino and Il Lombardia - his first Monument.  You can read more at Cyclingnews.com

WADA approves governance reforms

Posted: 19:30, 15 Nov 2018

After two months of increasing demands for reform, the World Anti-Doping Agency announced today "wide-ranging" reforms to its governance structure, including requirements for independence in the president and vice president positions that will be implemented before the 2019 election, and the addition of athlete representation on all committees. The changes, which were approved by the Foundation Board during its meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan, meet some of the requests laid out in 'The Alternative' - an effort started by Para-athlete Ali Jawad - in the wake of WADA's decision to reinstate the Russian Anti-Doping Agency. The agency created a furore when it reinstated RUSADA before it had met the conditions laid out in WADA's own 'roadmap to compliance'. Most of the criticisms of WADA's governance centred around the presence of several IOC members on the WADA board and executive committees - and the conflict of interest that goes along with it - as well as the lack of athlete representation. WADA President Sir Craig Reedie, also an IOC member, who has resisted demands that he resign, praised the reforms as signs of WADA's "willingness to adapt".ADVERTISEMENT "As with all well-run organizations, we want to ensure that we have the right processes in place and that we change with the times," Reedie said in a statement. "In an ever-changing world, WADA's role has grown and evolved since its current governance model was first formed. It is right that the structure should develop as well and should continue to be looked at in the future. This should not be thought of as the end of a process but, in fact, it is really the beginning of an ongoing process of governance review within WADA." The reforms were recommended by the WADA Governance Working Group, a panel that includes representatives from National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs), the Sports Movement and Governments, athletes and independent governance experts, was formed after the Rio Olympic Games and the Russian doping scandal. The changes stop short of meeting the suggestions in 'The Alternative' document - which called for three athlete seats on the Executive Committee - or the demand for complete independence of all members on this committee. However, the reforms do include the creation of a Nominations Committee "to ensure the right people in terms of skills and independence serve in senior governance roles within WADA", as suggested in the paper, with "at a minimum" one seat for both athletes and NADOs. "The changes approved today will make a significant difference to how the Agency is run and the greater independence on WADA's Executive Committee is particularly welcome," Reedie said. "I would like to thank the Working Group's independent chair Dr. Ulrich Haas and all the members for their commitment and determination to produce the best possible results. It is clear that all stakeholders were well represented and given every opportunity to express their opinions to the Group." According to the WADA press release, these reforms are only the first of a series of changes which will be implemented. The board agreed with the Working Group's recommendation "that the voice of the athletes should be strengthened beyond the existing means when there is a mechanism to ensure sufficient representation".

Peter Sagan headlines Shanghai Criterium

Posted: 17:14, 15 Nov 2018

Former world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will be without his brother Juraj in the ASO's Shanghai Criterium this weekend. Juraj Sagan was one of three late withdrawals after breaking his foot in training.  Rick Zabel (Katusha-Alpecin) was unable to travel to China after breaking his collarbone in a training crash, while Tanel Kangert (Astana) injured his arm. The ASO event will still have a star-studded field, with Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) as headliner, although last year's champion Chris Froome will not be in attendance.ADVERTISEMENT Pierre Latour (AG2R La Mondiale), the best young rider in the Tour de France this year, was one of the first to arrive in China for the race. As is tradition, he will wear his white jersey in the Shanghai Criterium. "I've never been to China, so I'm really excited to race there," Latour said in an ASO press release. "Riding with a Tour jersey makes it even more awesome because it implies extra responsibility." When Peter Sagan arrived, he found the airport mobbed with fans holding up signs and cheering. — Peter Sagan (@petosagan) November 15, 2018 You can read more at Cyclingnews.com

UCI give Van Aert permission to look for new team

Posted: 15:00, 15 Nov 2018

Wout van Aert has received clearance from the UCI to sign for a new road team, according to Belgian news agency Belga. Van Aert's lawyer Walter Van Steenbrugge told Belga on Thursday lunchtime that the UCI had given the green light for Van Aert to negotiate a deal with a new team after terminating his contract with Veranda's Willems-Crelan in September. The decision from the governing body paves the way for the cyclo-cross world champion, who enjoyed a highly impressive debut Classics campaign this spring, to join LottoNL-Jumbo from the start of 2019. He had already agreed to join the Dutch WorldTour outfit on a three-year deal from 2020, and, after the fall-out with Veranda's Willem's-Crelan, the team's management were keen to bring him on board from this coming January.ADVERTISEMENT Van Steenbrugge said that the permission granted by the UCI was on the condition that Van Aert signs a contract before December 31. The possible early move to LottoNL-Jumbo had been complicated by a bitter legal dispute between Van Aert and Sniper Cycling, the holding company that owns the Veranda’s Willems-Crelan team. A lawsuit was quickly filed against the 24-year-old for what the team saw as breach of his contract, which ran until the end of 2019. Van Aert, however, was unhappy with the way he was treated as the team attempted to negotiate mergers with other Pro Continental teams, firstly with Aqua Blue Sport and then, successfully, with Roompot-Nederlandse Loterij. He ‘unilaterally terminated’ his contract in September and began to ride cyclo-cross events as an independent rider. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com
