Bialoblocki is a good signing for UK Youth.


i heard a rumour he was going to Lampre.....possibly what he was referring to with his tweet? he hasn't done a huge amount since his 'comeback' and i think it would have been unfair on a younger up and coming rider if he did get a ride there...

I was chatting to him for quite a while last week (top bloke and always around the local cross scene watching his kids and wife). I didn't get the impression he was expecting to ride at that high a level though. He'd be a good DS for Sky I would have thought though.

Whats been the story with him, Pross? His announcement that he wouldnt be staying with UKYouth seemed pretty sudden and abrupt, and his tweets have been pretty downbeat ever since about not being certain re what he's going to be doing next.

As for Sky, ummm...would he be able to meet their zero-tolerance reqs....
