I did post something much earlier in the thread about him renewing with Jumbo, but I think that was a verbal agreement.

    Just when it appears that they've been able to assemble the right team around him at #jumbo.

    Might explain the current alliance in the Vuelta as being more than just national pride, too.

    Rog-Pog 2020?

    .......but no mention of Bahrain as a possible destination. They are (or were - Dark Side?) the team with a bigger Slovenian connection.

    Anyway.....

    A cynic might say that he actually hasn't improved at all since his Caja days, but he did have some decent cobble results this year. Still, it's a bit of a strange one.

    Joining him at NTT is Gogl.

    Matxin must see something that I don't. Okay, twelfth at the Giro this year, but what's his role gonna be in the team? He's not much of a dom.

    Stefano Oldani *it #kometa to #lotto, which I posted about a week or two ago, is confirmed now. An unusual signing for them, but it could be a great move. He's a very complete, allround rider.

    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.

    Another good signing for Delko. Just need to get Arashiro on board now.

    Eekhoff + Gall + Salmon ----------> #sunweb

    While the average age of Dimension Data is pushing 40, Sunweb are going the other direction. As somebody once said though "You can't win anything with kids"........as it turned out, he was wrong.

    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.

    Not sure what's going on at Total. Both of these riders were linked heavily with them and with Total's money we were expecting big transfers (rumours of Kristoff and Alaphilippe earlier in the year), but so far it's Van Gestel, Manzin and Julien Simon.
