Transfers 2018 comments [newest on top]

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 5.Jan 18:49, 2018

The chief-in-commander of Luxembourg Finest is happy to finally announce the arrival of three new riders. Valerio Conti, Davide Formolo and Sergio Henao have signed with the second best team in 2017 and this shows the ambition of the team to take one more step in the coming year. Unfortunately some riders had to leave the team to make the deal happen. The chief-in-commander wants to thank Gianluca Brambilla, Dimitri Claeys, Timothy Dupont and Damien Touze for their commitment to the team last year, it would be impossible to be on the podium last year without such great riders.

All riders have 2-years contract and expects to develop as riders the coming year and are more than happy to join Luxembourg Finest. Especially since it is the only team based in Mondorf and the city has legendary status among the riders.

Valerio Conti has got a wage of $8 and stated that he feels much more welcome in his new team because of his big wage increase.

Davide Formolo on the other hand gets wage decrase to $18, mostly because of he was valued too high in his former team. He accepts that and says that he wants to prove he deserves more in the second part of the season and have finally got his motivation back.

Sergio Henao keeps his already too high wage of $28 and are hoping for more own chances this year than in the previous ones and the probability of that has increased since the end of 2017 due to things outside his own control. This makes him the perfect purchase for Luxembourg Finest this window.

Minimum 75 %, so $12

Kristian-K [Green Bullet Cycling] Friday 5.Jan 18:11, 2018
Press release:
Roman Kreuziger signs with GBC. He get a two year deal worth $11 or $12? (how are the rules again?) In return bendit wil sign JJ Lobato.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 5.Jan 14:57, 2018
Hear ye, hear ye!

I was planning to steal him in the draft, but I got Steinvik to trade Butterface van Lerberghe to Il Piccolo Partykjepps. It's a bit of a gamble given Cofidis' singular focus on Bouhanni, but it's a worthwhile punt. Bert gets 6 Gadrets in wage through 2018.

It's a bit of a shame having to send Scott Thwaites to Steinvik as I had, and still have high hopes for him in the semi- to classics, but best of luck! He gets a wage of 6 Gadrets through 2019 at Steinvik.

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Friday 5.Jan 14:05, 2018
Anyone else have riders they want to trade for draft picks? Willing to listen to all offers.

2nd FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
I don't have many riders to trade, but I'll take marginal gains where I can.
Sergio Pardilla will accept $12 after a trade. Vitaliy Buts would require $6.
Preferably looking for 2 for 1 deals if possible to boost my rider count.

Petr Vakoc (Partyfinn)
Max Schachmann (Partykjepp)

Apart from Schachmann as stated below, dunno what the wages/contracts are for these leaving.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Dec 22:52, 2017
EPO: main draft starts 19:00 CET on Friday Jan 5th.

New managers can trade all their newly signed riders. Only restriction is any signing in has to have wage level of at least 75% of wage on old team plus riders can only be traded once per transfer window. Us existing managers can not trade riders who we renewed outgoing 2017-contracts.

Apart from this, all current free agents are available in the main draft in the same manner as pre-draft. Ask again if that didn't answer your question :)

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Dec 22:46, 2017
2nd FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
When is the main draft?

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Friday 1.Dec 22:45, 2017
Can you clarify the rules for free agents for me again?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Dec 22:33, 2017
Hear ye,

Transfers can now be announced!

Straight out the gates I can announce that Marco Marcato will be moving on from Il Piccolo Partykjepps after a disappointing season. Although there are no doubts about his potential as a high-scorer, team management grew weary with his constant domestiqueing.

Marco is off to Assassin's team, with big burly meatslab Schachmann coming in on 6 in wage through 2019 - will be exciting to see whether those glimmers of potential in both TT and the classics will be allowed to develop further in 2018. Perhaps not the best team to be given many chances this year, but an investment in the future.
