    I was certain he'd sign a pro contract for 2019, but this immediate transfer is a surprise.

    Also means that a #virtu pro team starts to look more and more unlikely ... if they can't keep their own riders, how is it ever going to work?

    among others, according to today's Het Nieuwsblad.

    His contract ends at the end of the year, same as Adam Yates' and Caleb Ewan's, and #mitchelton Mitchelton Scott can't afford to keep all three

    Trek-Segafredo? Is this still a team I wondered. So I checked that they actually were a WT team on ProCyclingStats. On the Team page they have a list of the last 10 results. It's clearly only a snapshot but Trek-Segafredo's best result in the last 10 is 10th. For UAE it's 6th, next worst is 3rd.

    Why would any world class rider join this team?

    To be fair, this snapshot two thirds through a GT will be skewed a lot towards who they have racing that GT - for #trek that is a squad with a neo-pro, other riders doing their second GT (or so), and a designated GC leader (Brambilla) who is around 30th place overall. Not a bad performance by him I would say seeing as it's his first GT as a leader.
    So, yes, they aren't exactly setting the world on fire at the moment; but then, how many teams are.

    Why would any world class rider join this team?
    :betting
    Trek don't have any world-class GT rider at the moment, but a number of decent riders who could work for such a guy. And it's an Anglophone team which doesn't hurt when trying to attract a Yates (or wo).

    Reported today that he turned down a 2.5 Million Euro offer before the Giro. That sounds more like agent talk to me saying if he was worth this much before the Giro think what you'll have to pay now.

    Trek lost the bidding for Fabio Aru, that might have been a bit of a blessing in disguise, as I guess he will come cheaper next time around...

    Wow, they're getting desperate.
    Betancur is in good shape and not the overweight, unmotivated guy he was in previous years ... but this shows the level of trust they (don't) have in their current stage racers.

    And if #movistar is willing to let him go mid-season with a year and a half left to run, it doesn't say much for Unzue's confidence in him.

    to be fair, even back in shape, he'd definitely have Valverde, Quintana, Landa and Soler still ahead of him. And probably also Carapaz, Roson and Amador. If he gets more opportunities elsewhere, I don't think Unzue would stand in his way, without bad blood between them

    Ewan don't want to sign a deal before the Tour though as he (well, his agent, I guess) hopes for more money afterwards.

    Greipel on the other hand could leave Lotto. Negotiations are still ongoing, but so far the team is only willing to prolong his contract for one additional season while Greipel is looking for a two-year deal

    Interesting that Debusschere is also on his way out. He's PCT material only, I think.
