Maximiliano Richeze returns on temporary contract to reinforce UAE Team Emirates

The team posted this update:

Maximiliano Richeze will make a return to UAE Team Emirates on a temporary basis, filling the hole left by a wrist and ankle injury to Alvaro Hodeg which will rule him out for the opening months of the season.

The popular Argentinian will join the team until the conclusion of the Giro D’Italia at which point Hodeg will be poised to make his return. This will also mark Richeze’s retirement from the sport after over 15 seasons in the professional ranks.

Mauro Gianetti, CEO & Team Principal : “The absence of Hodeg left us with a gap to fill and Richeze is the right person for that role. He knows the atmosphere and the structure of the team already and doesn’t need any introduction in that regard. We’ve also seen from his recent performances at home racing in Argentina that he is in really good shape so it’s a logical move for us. I know Max is really pleased about it too.

"At the same time we are wishing Alvaro all the best with his recovery, it was a heavy injury but we are confident that he can bounce back strong in the second half of this year to his former high level.”

Maximiliano Richeze: “I’m pleased to be coming back and able to help the team where I’ve already spent two great years. It’s a special group of people at the team and I’m thankful for the opportunity given to me by Mauro to return and bow out from cycling in the way I want.It seems fitting to end my career here.

"It was an easy decision for me to make and I look forward to pinning on a race number again.”

COVID forces CABDA to cancel February bicycle show

Bicycle Retailer & Industry News sent me this unhappy news:

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Organizers of the CABDA Expo will not hold their 2022 Midwest Expo, which had been scheduled for Feb. 9-10 in Chicago. The recent surge in COVID-19 cases drove the decision, show director Jim Kersten said.

"This was an agonizing decision," Kersten said. "Anyone that knows me also knows that 'The Show Must Go On' is my personal mantra.

"But the situation we're facing now is too difficult to overcome, and I think postponing the show is in the best interests of the exhibitors and attendees."

Kersten said he decided to make the call as early as possible before exhibitors and retailers began making preparations for the show.

"Even with enhanced mitigation procedures in place like vaccines, masks, and social distancing, we do not know what the situation will look like next month," Kersten said. "The last thing we want to do is to go forward with an event only to have the rug pulled out from underneath us a few days before the show."
