P&S Team Thüringen (a direct descendant of Thüringer Energie Team?)
Yes - and no. It's not a direct descendant, but it came about because TET stopped.

Thüringer Energie Team was run by the company TeamSpirit of Jörg Werner who is now a riders' agent (Marcel Kittel, Tony Martin, Max Schachmann, Kristina Vogel) and brought the 2016 *de RR champs to Erfurt. It was essentially a private venture - which of course would have good relations to riders from Thüringen and sign those, but also would sign others.

P&S Team Thüringen is run by the Thüringen cycling federation (TRV); in the last years it was the TRV's official Bundesliga squad that took on talented riders from Thuringian cycling clubs ... and only those. Similar squads exist(ed) for other of Germany's federal states such Berlin (KED-Stevens Radteam Berlin), Sachsen (Schwalbe Team Sachsen), or Hessen (Hessen-Frankfurt-Opelit).
If you're not from Thüringen, you can circumvent this by registering with a Thuringian club, though - or the team may even approach you with an offer to move to the state, start a university course or an apprenticeship, register with a local club, and race for them.

As a Continental team, these restrictions would likely be relaxed, or done away with altogether. But the team management would probably still have deeper knowledge of the local riders and prefer those over other riders who hail from further afield.

    Jolidon found another gullible federation to fund his exploits. :S

    They were already on the startlist for the Tour de Siak this week, but failed to show up.
    I'll believe this when I see them finishing a race. :fp

    A Chinese WT team in 2020?

    I dunno about WT unless they "buy" an already extant team (Quickstep or Mitchelton if Gerry Ryan is fed up with paying the bills?), but if people like Shane Sutton and Brian Smith are getting involved it at least lends some credence to the idea of the team ever existing.

    Watch this space.

    people like Shane Sutton [...] involved
    It also makes me more than just second-guess if I would want such a team to exist.

    Yes, Sutton brings results.
    But I am leaning towards the view that a more cooperative relationship with the athletes he's entrusted would, in fact, yield even better results ... as well as a lower number of athletes 'spat out' because they 'don't work in the system'.
    It's not the athletes that are 'not good enough', it's the system that's simply not up to scratch any more (and actually never was - but few cared in the 'good old days').

    Fair play to Floyd. Wins the "lottery" and puts it all into a new Canadian CT team - Floyd’s of Leadville Pro Cycling Team.

    I say new, but Gord Fraser is involved and they hope to pick-up some of the youngsters from Silber.

    If they're sticking to a strict U23 devo team then nobody from UHC is young enough and only Jorgenson from Jelly Belly fits the bill.

    Yesterday's reports weren't 100% accurate.

    Other bits to glean from this article are:

    #1 No riders have been hired yet

    #2 Same budget (roughly) as Silber, but fewer riders

    #3 Gord talks about it being a great thing "if we can keep a couple of the (Silber) guys"

    #4 The team will participate in other expanding areas of cycling - gravel, Gran Fondos and CX

    #5 They might do some "foreign stuff" if the Canadian or Quebecois federations are interested (in paying!)

    Speaking of Floyd, is that a little extra baggage around the middle that I see? :D

    nyvelocity has a GREAT take on the issue:

    They had sponsors? :S

    :P

    This is what happens when people get involved in stuff they don't know much about. They still managed a longer run than Rick Delaney, so fair play to them for that.

    not "one pro" as in an unspecified individual, but One Pro, UK Conti team that has been around for 4 years.  Announced recently that men's team was stopping but there would be a women's team, now there won't be that either.

    So we have Deceuninck-Quick-Step (that combination of long and short dashes will not please the casual typist); a multi-year deal, which is good for stability, the stabilisation of a major team, and a consistency of kit colour.

    All of which is good, but how do we say it?

    I am using an as yet untried outside my own head variant on "Designing", as said by a comedy stereotype west-country yokel, "dezoinink".

    it has been surprisingly silent around #wilier Wilier Triestina so far, although they are definitely losing the main sponsor for 2019.

    According to Beppe Conti, KTM will take over sponsorship for the coming three years (which would also put some sense into the odd mid-season transfer of #hrinkow Sebastian Schöneberg).

    Two potential signings could be #bora Matteo Pelucchi (basically a one-to-one replacement for Mareczko, so it would make sense) and #quickstep Eros Capecchi

    someone from the team posts on Cicloweb, he says the new bike supplier will not be the main sponsor. Talks about the exact name of the team for the next season are still ongoing.

    #bora Pelucchi also said yesterday that he is still looking for a new team. So this just seems to be the normal kind of Beppe Conti "rumor"...

    Perhaps LOOK did want to jump on that train but Ag2r didn't want to ride the bikes that another team thought weren't good enough mid season.

    Will Merckx continue supplying Sport Vlaanderen - Baloise aswell or are they now on the lookout for a new bike supplier.
