BMC Reinforcements

Postby Mr Squiggle » Fri Aug 13, 2010 11:08 am

So does anyone know anything about Amaël Moinard?? Apparently he will be moving from Cofidis to BMC next year as reinforcements for Cadel Evans in the mountains.

I have only been following the cycling for a year or two, and have only ever seen him win King of the Mountains and a stage in Paris-Nice this year. Has he done anything else of note?, and do people think he will be a valuable asset for BMC should the rumours be confirmed?

That's the kind of thing that can make a career.

Hence the reason I asked if he had done anything else.

Looks like he might potentially be useful, but I reckon BMC might still be looking to bolster its climbing support stocks a little more.

They need an entire teams worth of climbers with some passion instead of the disjointed crap Cadel had this year

I think his broken elbow had more of an influence on his performance in the mountains than his team did.

Well that sounds real promising then doesn't it... :roll:

28 years old he is - does that make him in his prime or not quite yet??

Phinney has now signed for BMC, must make Lancey feel a bit dopey, especially after putting him on as a Stagiare in RS and on the Livestrong U23 as well ...... Will be a good help in TTT's for any GT's GT's for cuddles

Wonder now who Canc will sign for ....

I might have to backflip on my call for the banning of TTT's in GT's. Surely there should be at least 2 in every GT (if Fab signs for BMC) :P :P
