    Cycling 2018

    Great start to the year as Ryan Mullen wins a TT stage of Vuelta San Juan.

    http://www.stickybottle.com/latest-n...elta-san-juan/

    Mullen is with Trek this year while Dan Martin has moved to UAE, will hopefully see him get more support at le Tour and indeed elsewhere.

    Bennett still with Bora and competed in the Town Down Under but had been sick so didn't really feature. Roche remains at BMC.

    Aqua Blue are are Pro Continental level again and feature the prodigiously talented Eddie Dunbar this year as well as Conor Dunne and Matt Brammeier.

    Whoops meant to include Deignan remains at Sky.

    Bennett has picked up a win in Melbourne, not a big race but still good to see him back in form: https://www.bora-hansgrohe.com/en/ne...ourne/33124038

    Another really good weekend as Martin takes a stage of the Dauphine and finishes 4th overall while Bennett wins in Koln. Not a massive race but important to a German team and any day you beat Kittel is a good day.

    He was 12/1 to win the stage.
    If a dog weighs under 50 lbs it's a cat, and cats are useless.

    Martin and Roche both in the Vuelta. Roche has had a very quiet year but tends to be good at the Vuelta.

    Meanwhile sad to see Aqua Blue fold as a team. They could not get invites and couldn't make the numbers add up. It never appeared likely they would be able to TBH.
