Campina sponsor bij Lotto-Jumbo

De Lotto-Jumbo schaats- en wielerploeg komt iets ruimer in het budget te zitten. Zuivelgigant Friesland Campina maakt vandaag, op de tweede rustdag van de Tour de France, bekend dat het als co-sponsor in het ambitieuze sportsponsorproject stapt. Het contract met Team Oranje zal vanmiddag getekend worden.

Daarmee heeft LottoNL-Jumbo momenteel vijf grote sponsors. Sinds 2015 zijn De Lotto, Jumbo, BrandLoyalty en Bianchi al geldschieters van beide teams. Zij hebben inmiddels contracten met de schaatsploeg tot na de Winterspelen van Pyeongchang in 2018. Met de wielerformatie loopt het contract tot eind 2018. Bij Jumbo in er interesse om na die periode verder te gaan.


Friesland Campina werkt sinds twee jaar als official supplier ook al samen met NOC*NSF als de expert op het gebied van goede basiszuivel. Het Friese bedrijf zet de komende jaren in op sport. Zo moedigt Campina met de campagne ’Sterk met Campina’ sportend Nederland aan om gezond te leven.

Bij de schaatsploeg is Sven Kramer het boegbeeld, terwijl de wielerploeg scoort met wielrenners als Steven Kruijswijk, Robert Gesink en Dylan Groenewegen. In deze Tour eindigde het team twee keer als tweede (Gesink en Groenewegen).

Ben wel benieuwd hoeveel budget erbij komt. Ik verwacht dat de contracten van Bennet en Roglic opgewaardeerd moeten worden, en daarnaast zou het mooi zijn om nog wat versterkingen te halen.

Om te beginnen met Dylan van Baarle.

Ik zou beginnen bij iemand die ook op Tourniveau sprints kan aantrekken, geen Wagner dus.

Bennett en Roglic vasthouden wordt lastig denk ik en gezien het Nederlandse karakter van de sponsors zal dat niet de hoogste prio hebben.

Waarschijnlijk hoeft de ploeg nu zelf geen melk en vla meer te kopen.
En dan spaar je flink wat uit. Ik ben heel blij voor LTJ.

De experimenten met Battaglin en Lobato bestempel ik als mislukt. Zoals Wynants rondrijdt heeft hij ook geen meerwaarde meer. Zou mooi zijn als ze die mannen elders kunnen slijten. Liever alleen buitenlanders met een toegevoegde waarde of nog veel potentieel (zoals Jansen en De Tier).

Van Baarle en eventueel Langeveld lijken me mooie versterkingen. Geen idee hoe lang hun contracten nog lopen bij Cannondale, maar vrees dat ze zich anders volgend jaar toch moeten wegcijferen voor Vanmarcke.

Bouwman loopt wel af...
Na zijn DL-optreden mag je hopen dat ie een verlenging krijgt en een beter programma ( geen Nokere en dat soort "beledigingen" )

1...Helaas, Sinkeldam net weggekaapt...stelletje slapers winking smiley
2. Als "knecht" voor Kruijswijk en in andere Ronde(n) als kopman zou best te billijken zijn voor die sponsors toch ?

Ik weet niet hoeveel geld er bij komt, maar wellicht is Mollema weer een optie? Dan ben je in ieder geval zichtbaar in zo'n beetje alle koersen die hij rijdt.

Ook Mollema ligt al vast bij Trek voor 2018. Eerst nakijken voordat je met zulke uitspraken komt.

Ik zou vooral investeren in een goede opleidingsploeg en fatsoenlijke training- en ontwikkelprogramma's. Het probleem bij TLJ/Belkin/Rabo was niet zozeer het gebrek aan talent maar het gebrek om het talent tot wasdom te laten komen. Delahaye z.s.m eindelijk dumpen en een fatsoenlijke trainer aan trekken.

El Mik 17 juli 2017 13:34
Misschien kwam het talent te vroeg tot wasdom, niet alleen de talenten die het niet haalden bij de profs, maar ook de Gesinks, Booms, Posthuma's en andere Slagters van deze wereld die allemaal hun beste jaren op een "te jonge" leeftijd hadden.

Trentin lijkt me prima in de ploeg te passen, voor de sprint van Groenewegen en daarnaast een coureur die zelf kan afmaken

Het is geen uitspraak, maar een vraag. En je antwoord is dus nee omdat ie al vast ligt. Waarvoor dank.

qua budget zou men niet teveel surplus moeten verwachten.
Waar andere sponsors zouden bijgeven, heet Lotto het trekje het bedrag naar onderen af te ronden zodat alles ongeveer gelijk blijft.
als er al extra is, zal het vermoedelijk niet meer dan 300 tot 500.000 zijn.

Of Mezgec, die zal een stuk goedkoper zijn. Trentin gaat waarschijnlijk naar een nieuwe Franse ploeg.

Geen dank Wanny. Als je onderstaande site nakijkt kun je zien wie al vast ligt bij een ploeg. Even het jaartal rechtsboven invullen en je hebt een overzicht.

Volgens Lefevere niet. Trentin gaat wel weg, maar niet naar die nieuwe Franse ploeg. Zie sporza.be bericht vandaag.

Trentin is ook goed in het voorjaar. Prima aankoop lijkt me.

Roompot leidt ook renners op voor LTJ.

vermoedelijk Astana....al staat hij ook bij Bahrein Merida ook hoog op de lijst.
Het is maar een gerucht dat circuleert, maar de interesse is er al van vorig jaar.....

Grapjes,
Je hebt niet helemaal opgelet. Hij is nog gewoon trainer van o.a. Gesink en Wynants en maakt ook nog trainingsschema's.

Kan ook dat het extra geld gebruikt gaat worden om Joesjkov bij Rusland los te weken.
En om Kramer te behouden op te bieden tegen KPN.

Het is tenslotte FRIESLAND-Campina.

die fatsoenlijke trainer hebben ze wel degelijk en hij verrichte al mooi werk. (Lamberts)
helaas speelt de leiding nog teveel de viool van Delahaye, en maakt Plugge het wel vaker erg bont.

The great goose winter spectacular

Getting down to basics, geese in this part of the world fall into two types; the grey geese, Greylag Goose falls into this category, and the black geese, Canada Goose is the most familiar of this group. Putting both types together, over 500,000 thousand geese spend the winter months in and around Britain and Ireland.

The grey geese

In all, four species of grey geese, Greylag Goose, White-fronted Goose, Bean Goose and Pink-footed Goose, and three species of black geese regularly occur here between October and March and, with a little effort, all of them can be seen.

Most of us will be familiar with Canada Goose. Identified by its white chinstrap, on a black head and neck, Canada Goose was originally brought here from North America in the late seventeenth century, It is now well established across many parts of the country, with the exception of the Highlands of Scotland and Eire. Frequenting the lakes of parks, towns and cities, this is the goose that many of us associate with the word goose, and due to its introduced status and that fact that we come into close contact with it, it would be easy to be fooled into thinking that geese are not that exciting as birds go. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Wild geese winging their way into a winter roosting site, or moving from one feeding area to another, provide one of nature’s true wildlife spectacles. The sight and sound of a moving goose flock has to be seen to be believed.

Having spent the summer in Iceland and Greenland around 200,000 Pink-footed Geese move to spend the winter months here, with some of the largest gatherings found in south-west Lancashire, the Loch of Strathbeg in Scotland and the North Norfolk coast. From mid-afternoon onwards, they can be seen gathering at roost sites, tumbling out of the sky, or whiffling as it is known in bird circles, to join others on the ground in ever growing numbers until dusk sets in and all falls quiet.

Around 16,000 White-fronted Geese, from two populations, one from Greenland and the other from north-west Siberia and north-east Europe, make their way here. Greenland White-fronts are very much a bird of the west, with the largest gatherings found on the west coast of Scotland, particularly on the island of Islay, which holds as many as 8,000 birds, and in southern Ireland at Wexford Slobs.

Wild Greylag Geese wing their way here from Iceland, about 100,000 in all, with around half of them heading for Orkney and the rest spreading out across Scotland, where good numbers can be found at Loch Leven, Loch Fleet and the Forth Estuary. However, you don’t have to travel to Scotland to see spectacular flights of Greylags. South of the border, around 40,000 ‘re-established’ Greylags can now be found, across most of the country but with a definite eastern bias. Some of the largest flocks are to be seen on the North Norfolk coast, in the lower Derwent Ings, and in Northern Ireland on Loughs Neagh and Beg. Being the loudest of all the geese, a roost flight of these impressive birds has to be seen to be believed as they bugle and trumpet their way across the sky.

The final grey goose to regularly winter in the UK is also the rarest. Fewer than 500 Bean Geese make their way from the Russian Taiga to spend the winter on the Slammanan Plateau, Scotland, where around 300 of them can be found, and the mid-Yare Valley where the remainder spend the winter on the freshwater marshes around Cantley.

The black geese

Canada Geese can be found almost anywhere but the largest gatherings are around the west coast estuaries, such as the Mersey, Dyfi, Ribble and Dee. Flocks here often reach in excess of a thousand birds.

Around 80,000 wild Barnacle geese spend the winter here, and are roughly divided 50/50 between those that come here from Greenland and are found in north-west Scotland and Ireland, particularly on Islay and at Inishkea, and those that come from Svalbard. The entire Svalbard population winters on the Solway Firth, with Caerlaverock being one of the most important sites. For many this is the prettiest of all of our regular over-winterers. It is well worth catching up with a flock of this dainty black and white goose. With its largely white head, black neck, grey and black body and shrill barking call, a flight of Barnacles takes some beating.

That leaves us with the Brent Goose, the smallest of the geese to regularly winter here. Again, this species is represented by two distinct populations, Light-bellied Brent Goose, which breeds on the Arctic Islands of north-east Canada, and Dark-bellied Brent Goose from the Russian tundra.

Pale-bellied can be found in the west, mainly in Ireland where over 20,000 spend the winter on Strangford Lough, and Dark-bellied on the south and east coasts of England, the best sites being the Wash, the Thames Estuary and Chichester Harbour. These three sites regularly hold over 40,000 birds. The quiet ‘murmuring’ of a flock of feeding Brents is very much a sight and sound of winter.

So, this winter get out and about and enjoy some of nature’s great travellers, and while you’re at it submit your observations to BirdTrack, and help add to the BTO database and make your walsk count for conservation.
