More money and more foreign riders.
Maybe that will finally get them a Tour wildcard? :-x

    If Katusha go the way of the dodo, there's definitely a possibility, but going by this interview they won't be going out and signing big names this year. Some helpers for Coquard and a few youngsters are much more likely.

    Things are looking grim for Euskadi - Murias.

    Quote
    Euskadi-Murias, present in the Tour of Spain as one of the four guests to the race (together with Burgos BH, Caja Rural and Cofidis), has a very complicated continuity in the platoon in 2020 due to lack of liquidity. The situation is such that runners have total freedom to accept offers from other teams for the next season.

    There just aren't the riders or money for two PCT Basque teams and most of the local sponsors are with the Fundacion. A merger would be the sensible option, but even post-Madariaga that doesn't seem a goer.

    Rider announcements have let slip that Dimension Data will be Team NTT next season. 

    Unfamiliar as I am with the world of high finance and megabusinesses, my understanding is that Dimension Data (based in Johannesburg) is no longer merely owned by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (Tokyo), but is under (since 1st July) a holding company NTT Ltd (in London).  The overall holding company is many times the size of the DD business (which was already big enough to be able to give an Ineos busting budget without any real difference to the bottom line), but who knows what their business culture will be as regards disposition to sponsor.  Their signings do not suggest a hugely expanded budget.

    There seems to be some retention of Middle East and African aspects of Dimension Data outside NTT Ltd, but not the cycling team.  So where will the team be registered?  Will it still be "Africa's Team" (according to CQ, only 2 of their 9 African riders are contracted for next year), and what of the Qhubeka promotion?
