Q-S has stepped down as primary sponsor but the window company, Deceuninck, has stepped up.  Sounds like the team is in a good place for a few more years.

I feel like I really shouldn't be rooting for this dynasty but I like them.  Seems like a team with a good heart and good feelings within the team.  They race a lot of races to win. not just certain select ones.   They have stayed remarkably headline free, choosing instead to mark the sports pages with results.  (Yes, Tom Boonen did make a few headlines.  He was a rock star whose axe was a bike.  He did mature, stayed with Q-S and became a real asset to cycling as a whole, not just the team.)

Q-S lost Terpstra before this deal was closed.  Too bad, but I hope he thrives and Q-S has plenty of other weapons.  I hope Gaveria stays on.  (And ouch!  BTDT.  Broken collarbones suck.  In true Q-S fashion, workhorse Richeze - second locomotive of the Q-S leadout train - took it on himself to win after finding no one left to lead out.)

The spring Classics coming up.  Just not quite soon enough!

The never-ending revolving door of Belgian companies that no one has heard of. Good on them.

More importantly, what do we make of Lefevre's comments on the revised Paris-Tours route? Old man who didn't do his recon talking or does he have a point?

Let's finish the fall classics first Ben. Then winter and cyclocross. Then its slowly time to get thinking about Spring classics again.
