"We're not sure yet how many stages we will hold whether it is one or two stages or the whole competition. This is something that still needs to be discussed.

maybe fools day is on a different day in Thailand!

Signings time of year again and it looks like most Kiwis in the WorldTour are off contract.

No word yet on whether Bewley, Roulston, Sergent, Bennett or Bauer have resigned with their respective teams, are transferring, or will be moving out of the top tier of teams.

Hendy has re-signed with Lotto Soudal which is fantastic for him as he approaches the end of his career.

Great to see Paddy Bevin step up to the top ranks with Garmin-Cannondale.

One step down at Pro-Continental level... Shane Archbold has extended with Bora-Argon. UK based ONE Pro Cycling have announced the signing of Dion Smith, James Oram and Hayden McCormick.

Yeah. Confirmed on cyclingnews that he is leaving. Not saying where to but Tinkoff-Saxo have indicated interest.

Roly reportedly concentrating on making the track team for the Olympics. Potentially this could mean he is giving road away to achieve this.

Good to see that Wagon has signed for another 2 years for Orica-GreenEdge. That's a good mark of faith in him for the hard graft he puts in for the team and a solid season this year. :thumbsup:

Roly's professional road career has come to a close. He's confirmed that he'll be having a tilt at making the track team for the Olympics and then retiring from top level cycling.

Tom Scully confirmed to be riding for pro-conti team Drapac in 2016. :thumbsup:

(also Brad Evans has a stagiarie contract with Drapac for the remainder of this year. Doesn't look like there's an opening for a full time ride though if they are saying that their roster for next year is final.)
