All these transfers out make the step-up to PCT more and more unlikely. Has there been a single rumour about anyone joining them?

Fancellu will probably step up from the club team. Following on from the Uno-X Weekend thread, he's had a lot of success in those races that the Dare Devo team were at. Had a good Worlds last year as well.

Yeah, with all of their biggest talents leaving to WT it seems unlikely they'll step up to PCT this year. Still, not too long ago Berto shared a photo of him, his brother and Basso with the caption "work in progress 2020". So who knows.

Fancellu would be a good candidate to step up. Ropero has been very solid as well especially in the second half of the season. They'll probably pick up a couple from the Italian U23 scene like in previous years.

But they'll lose at least 4 riders, and I have to wonder if some of the older guys, the Fundación Contador originals, will hang around (Camacho, Canton, Lopez). Camacho was out of U23 already this year, and the other two will be out of U23 next year. Surely at some point it's over for them, even though it is unfortunate.
By the way, I think Camacho could be a good domestique in a team like Murias or Caja. He has a really big engine, but unfortunately has no real stand out results.
