with immediate effect:

#tarteletto Jelle Mannaerts --> Hubo-Titan Cargo

same as Floris Gerts (who was fired by the team last week: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/gerts-fired-by-tarteletto-isorex-and-considering-legal-action/ ) Mannaerts complained about the quality of the equipement at Tarteletto:

Those Zannata bikes are definitely not rideable. As a cycling tourist you may still be able to do your thing with it, but in the peloton this material is completely under par. The framework is simply way too stiff [?! "Het kader is gewoonweg veel te stapen plooit zelfs bij een stevige inspanning"]. At a certain moment I was too fed up with it and started to ride a different bike on my own initiative. That was of course not allowed. I didn't argue about it like Floris Gerts, but I was allowed to leave the team after a conversation. In any case, I know that more or less all team mates complained about the bikes, but that they did not dare to talk about it with fear of being fired.

For the moment he has only signed with Hubo till the end of the year, but is in talks with the team about 2020 as well.
