Will Peter Sagan Go To Tinkoff-Saxo? + Other Transfers & Race News - GCN Cycling News Show Ep. 83

Published on August 5th 2014


The transfer rumour mill is in action, driven, it seems, by Oleg Tinkov's Twitter feed. On the bike, Valverde and Vos both took big wins.

The transfer market is in full swing, with Oleg Tinkov allowing retweets to dictate his strategy. As well as the negotiations, there has been an actual mid-season move - something that's incredibly rare in pro cycling - with Rohan Dennis moving from Garmin to BMC. He'll ride the Vuelta for his new team.

In tech, Bianchi have released an incredibly slick new time trial bike. With few visible cables, we'd love to see other bikes move in this direction.

On the bike, Marianne Vos won the Sparkassen Giro in Germany (huge thanks to www.wielervideos.nl for the footage!), while Alejandro Valverde took the Clasica San Sebastian in Spain.

We've got your usual favourite features too. It was a strong week for the caption competition - if you'd like to enter this week leave your attempts in the comments below.

Dan might be on holiday, but he's disappeared off the face of the GCN Strava club. See if you can find him - it might take a lot of scrolling...
