We were hoping to know a lot more this Wednesday about the future of training B&B Hotels-KTMwhen she had announced last Monday atAFP that she would hold a press conference on Wednesday in Paris, Porte Maillot, on the eve of the presentation of Tour de France 2023. In the end, nothing will happen, we don’t know anything… since B&B Hotels-KTMformation of Morbihan, let it be known on Monday evening that the agreement with the press was plain and simple cancelled: “In the absence, this Wednesday, October 26, of certain major players in the team’s 2023 project, there will be no press conference organized by B&B HOTELS – KTM this week. We will keep you informed of the date on which it will be” . End of quote. If we know that the Breton team should have a much higher budget in 2023, which would allow it Jerome Pineau to attract very fine names, such as Mark Cavendish which has been announced but still not confirmed… today neither the new sponsors nor the recruits have been formalized yet. We must therefore (still) wait to know the future of this team. B&B Hotels-KTM with its recruitment, its sponsors, its projects… and more! B&B Hotels-KTM still in the dark and it remains to be seen whether the team will still exist next season as it does not even appear on the UCI list of 51 teams that have submitted a file for a 2023 licence.

Another hiccup… after the absence on the UCI lists!
“In the absence, this Wednesday, October 26, of certain major players in the team’s 2023 project, there will be no press conference organized by B&B HOTELS – KTM this week. We will keep you informed of the date to which it will stand “announced the team led by Jerome Pineau. A new setback that questions the absence of it B&B Hotels-KTM on the list of structures that have submitted a registration file for 2023. However, let’s hope and above all that we will soon know more about B&B Hotels-KTM version 2023: what aboutAmazonthat The city of Parishis file onUCIits total recruitment?

Cavendish, Amazon, UCI… a press conference on October 26 to make the rumors official!
Mark Cavendish (out of contract with the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team), will join the ranks of B&B Hotels-KTM. The Breton team, which does not appear on the list published on Wednesday by the International Cycling Union (UCI) of the 51 teams that have submitted a file to be registered for the 2023 season in the first division (WorldTour) and second division (ProTour). A fact that the Breton formation of Jerome Pineau explained by “a change in the legal structure inherent in the development of the team in the coming years and the team notes its absence from the provisional list of candidate teams for next year’s professional category published by the UCI.“
At least let’s hope it’s just a simple story about “paperwork.” Car brand Cavendish should not be the only one to land in Brittany since the Dutch Cees Bol (Team DSM) and Ramon Sinkeldam (Groupama-FDJ), as well as the Australian one Nick Schultz (BikeExchange-Jayco) has also been advertised with insistence for many months. are added to these Maximiliano Richeze (UAE Team Emirates), retired since May, but whose express request to Mark Cavendish joining his train would have changed his mind, and Stephen Williams (Bahrain-Victorious), winner of the first leg of the Tour in Switzerland 2022.

Amazon France interested in this new project… and the city of Paris?
In order to finance this XXL recruitment, one (or more) new sponsor(s) will necessarily come. If the Carrefour track, once announced, has been denied, it seems that the city of Paris is becoming a reality. A project that was supposed to aim to shed light on the Olympic Games in 2024. But according to our colleagues from Bicycle flashcould another juggernaut be interested in the team of Jerome Pineau : Amazon France. To know whether it will be the main or secondary sponsor. At least it seems so pineau working on an event, probably a press conference, on Wednesday, October 26. A not entirely insignificant date since the passage of Tour de France 2023 presented a day later in Paris. We will no doubt know more about the team’s future!
