Nothing in their Twitter feed, which has been inactive for months now.
They probably focused their energies on the team's last races.
If they knew they were winding down, the motivation to keep Social Media on full blast will have been small.

Doing it anyway might have helped in securing a new sponsor - but knowing the US cycling scene (and cycling in general, if we're honest), it might also just have been a lot of effort for nothing.

Shame to see another team closing shop. :(

    I suspect that this would've been their fate a year ago had Floyd not stepped in. It seems that his contributions were just enough to keep them above water for one more year.

    I wonder how aggressively they were seeking sponsorship for 2020. They seemed to do all that they could, with some good placings and visibility, but they must of known from the outset that Floyd wouldn't be able to sustain the team on his own.
     
    Plus, have they no respect for your team smileys?!?!   :yuush

    #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd #floyd

    I'm also forced to wonder what will become of their team kits and, more importantly, those team bikes.   :snooty

    Oh, I agree. The team would have closed last year already if it hadn't been for Floyd.

    I shouldn't have been worried about their future after all.

    there should be a new US continental team as well next season. Haven't heard much, but could be some of the old Jamis crew

    Heard same rumor - Tom or Sebastian begins it maybe? Probably good with a team or two folding. Wonder what gear the new team is on.

    yeah, I heard that Sebas was looking for races for "his new team", but as it just turned out, he will be with #aevolo Aevolo as a DS next year.

    So either (his) plans changed, or it was just a misinterpretation because of the wording.

    Vini Fantini on the ICA kits?

    Yes.

    With Sbaragli surprisingly leaving and Minali surely heading for the exit, that will leave Cimolai as the sole Italian. Could Stinky be a late transfer in to bolster the numbers?

    Just sad for all the riders who put their faith in these guys. :(

    Astana with an Italian bike ... expect some Italian signings (of bigger calibre than Boaro and Martinelli) for 2021.
    ICA has been rumoured for a while, now confirmed.
    Cofidis - their new WT status and guaranteed Giro invite will have played a role, I believe. Maybe even a special kit for the Giro?

    Do Kuota and Argon 18 have any pro teams for 2020?
    And which bikes will #total use now? Still Wilier?

    Argon 18 need to change their name to Aragon to keep Carlton happy.
