[CT '20] Philips | August

Into our fourth year as a team, we return to the Continental division of the Man Game, after suffering a shocking relegation last season. This resulted in all our well devised plans to be thrown out of the window, and we had to get back to the drawing-board and start with a fresh approach, and perhaps a fresh look.

Our targets for this season are simple, secure a promotion by finishing in the the Top 5 of the division. For this purpose, we have been hard at work trying to identify the best measures to achieve this target. It is imperative that we are much improved from last season, or our whole existence in our current avatar could be in danger.

Primary Sponsor

We are very lucky to have a supportive sponsor in Philips, who've agreed to stay on and support the team when we are at our lowest. They have however been clear in their targets, build a core around established and upcoming Dutch riders, and achieve immediate promotion to the Pro Continental Division. Failing one or both of these targets will probably lead to the severance of their support for the future.
Other Sponsors
We have lost two of our sponsors from last season but the rest remain.

It is incomplete to mention our sponsors and not mention Unilever and their contribution, which has been invaluable over the past three seasons.
Secondary Sponsor Unilever
Banking and Insurance Partner ABN Amro
Automobile Partners Audi (Cars) and VDL (Buses)
Equipment Canyon (Frames), SRAM (Groupsets), Zipp (Wheels) and Continental (Tyres)
Jersey Bioracer

Primary Focus: Netherlands

Our primary focus region remains the Netherlands. As always, we are open to recruiting riders from all over the world, who fit into the team structure.



Credits to the_hoyle for another excellent jersey!

The moment to reveal our jersey for the 2020 season has arrived. Last season's jersey has been spruced up and modified according to the changes in sponsorship, but remains the same otherwise. We loved this Bioracer design by the_hoyle last year, and wish to continue riding in it for this season too. The management says a huge thank you to our designer for his great work.



Good luck this season, looking at your (pre-renewals) roster I can't say I'm looking forward to race against you Pfft
@Nemolito: Thanks Smile You can be sure that many of those on the roster currently can't be retained because of the wage cap. Not for lack of trying though Pfft
Despite relegation it seems Philips is shining as bright as ever Smile


"I am a cyclist, I may not be the best, but that is what I strive to be. I may never get there, but I will never quit trying." - Tadej PogaÄŤar
@redordead: Philips bulbs, like the ones in our new headers, keep shining brightly. As for the team, only time will tell <insert thoughtful expression>

Relegation is never an easy milestone to overcome, but we are now faced with this challenge. We went into renewals hoping to keep our team's financial situation under control, and yet account for enough breathing room to be able to restructure somewhat for the CT season ahead.

The details of our renewals are listed below:

Name2019 Wage2020 WageChange
Wilco Kelderman500000425000-75000
Lahcen Saber3750003750000
Yoeri Havik200000110000-90000
Florentino Marquez3000000-300000
Bert Van Lerberghe12000090000-30000
Wouter Wippert700000-70000
Remco Te Brake1000000-100000
Andrea Palini650000-65000
Rok Korosec500007000020000
Olivier Le Gac950000-95000
Romain Bardet8000050000-30000
Felix Grossschartner50000500000
Jasper Bovenhuis50000500000
Wout Poels500000-50000
Pim Ligthart500000-50000
Kevin Inkelaar7000050000-20000
Pascal Eenkhoorn6000050000-10000
Lennard Hofstede50000500000
Ronan Van Zandbeek500000-50000
Piet Allegaert50000500000
Riccardo Minali50000500000
Jonas Bokeloh500000-50000
Aurelien Paret-Peintre100000-10000
Current Wages1470000

Kelderman, Havik and Van Lerberghe agreed on significant reductions to their 2019 salaries. Having retained Saber as well, for the same salary as last year, we like the fact that we have kept our options open, in terms of team leaders, going into the 2020 season. Off course, on a CT budget, it will not be possible to keep all of them. However, we are looking at keeping two of these four.

Bardet is another rider we were able to negotiate to a significantly lower salary. Eeenkhoorn and Inkelaar were happy to take a pay cut for this season, despite significant improvements in their abilities. All of Grossschartner, Bovenhuis, Hofstede, Allegaert and Minali have also renewed with us.

Korosec is the only rider renewed whose wage has gone up. He is considered an important part of our setup and we didn't think twice about giving him a raise, further justified by his increased ability in the off-season.

Marquez is the most high-profile rider cut from the team. His under-par 2019 season and his growing years meant we were not inclined to keep him on the roster as a possible leader this season. Te Brake, Palini, Le Gac, Poels, Ligthart, Van Zandbeek, Bokeloh and Paret-Peintre were not offered a contract extension. The hardest cut among these was that of Van Zandbeek who was one of the first riders we signed as a new CT in 2017 and has been with the squad ever since.

We offered Wippert a contract, which was worth more than what he earned last year, despite an indifferent season, but we could not come an to an agreement. As a result, he too has been released.

Overall, we are happy with how the renewals process was conducted. We were able to slash more than a million Euros in wages and have left ourselves a few options in terms of possible leaders around whom to rebuild.

Look out for a rider availability post in the coming days.

Good luck with transfers. Palini has a soft spot for me from that excellent stage win in the Balkans. But sure there were all tough calls for you.
Man Game: McCormick Pro Cycling
@hoyle: Can't say I haven't been expecting this Wink Off course we'll talk and see what can be cooked up!

@Ulrich: Did consider keeping him but with poor support stats and a shoestring budget, we didn't find it a viable option.
Heard through the grapevine that your biggest talents are interested in moving to a more prestigious team, such as Žalgiris, certainly interesting development

This modest team is always open for talks but probably only one of those talents are for sale.

The Team Management has decided to release the rider availabilities for the upcoming transfer window. Given below are the details:

NameAvailabilityLoan Status
Wilco KeldermanNo
Lahcen SaberYES
Yoeri HavikYES
Bert Van LerbergheNo
Rok KorosecNo
Romain BardetNo
Felix GrossschartnerNoPT Loan
Jasper BovenhuisNo
Kevin InkelaarNo
Pascal EenkhoornNoPCT Loan
Lennard HofstedeMaybe
Piet AllegaertMaybe
Riccardo MinaliYESPCT Loan

Saber and Havik are available for sale.

Minali is also available for sale. If we are unable to sell him, we plan to send him on a loan to a PCT team.

Hofstede and Allegaert could become available depending on how our other dealings go in the transfer window.

Grossschartner is available for a PT loan.

Eenkhoorn is available for a PCT loan.

Kelderman, Inkelaar and Eenkhoorn are not available unless some exceptional situation arises. Van Lerberghe is also not available as of now. We do not intend to sell the other riders either as things stand currently.

Having said all this, we are always open for transfer talks and discussions in the transfer window.
I'm very happy to see Wilco will be able to stay and help you rebounce!

Havik is an interesting rider for all divisions, but I'd assume other teams will have him much higher on their priority lists.
Wilco in the CT... he'll be almost as good as Roux Shock

Really exciting moving and shaking to be done for you to try and bounce back, and I'm sure you can do it - that renewals was a pretty great start it looks like. Even with the two riders who will move on, Kelderman backed up by Van Lergebergeheberge and Bardet is a great start to build off of.

4/10/20 - jph27 said "Just need to make sure I don't accidentally promote again."
24/2/21 - kandesbunzler said “I don’t drink famous people.”

Love that you stick with Wilco. Hope he will lead you to a dominant promotion campaign and stay as face of the team for the foreseeable future.
A Big Thank You To All MG Reporters!
And To All Who Organize Something On Daily As Well!
