Is the rabbit he pulled out of his hat actually a dodo?
Yeah, Virtu Cycling has been wound down.
When that was announced back in March, it was said that the 33% stake in #ntt would be bought & held by some new entity - but that hasn't been set up yet.

NTT really only 'inherited' the team when taking over Dimension Data, and there may not be much interest from their side.
Velux apparently aren't interested anymore, either ... dire straits for the team.

    Riwal, continues as the main sponsor of Riwal Securitas for the seventh season in a row.

    Good news for Riwal fans, but.....

    Quote
    The Danish ProTeam's future for the 2021 season is still uncertain. This is because there are many questions about whether the team has sufficient sponsorship support in the coming season to continue on the ProTour, which is cycling's second largest shelf.

    .....will it be at PCT or CT?

    So at World Tour level we now have:

      #bahrain Bahrain McLaren - loosing McLaren as sponsor (I think Bahrain can fill gap...)
      #ccc CCC - Sponsor and virtually riderless - heading for exit?
       #ntt NTT - now sponsorless
      #mitchelton Mitchelton Scott - underwritten, secure but in market?
      #lotto Lotto Soudal - Significant budget trim

    So tough winter for teams, riders and support staff ahead (... I know just like in every other industry (apart from home delivery) in the entire world!)

    ....and we can add to that

    #astana - regular payment issues and their best Kazakh rider could be jumping ship
    #ef - two good riders with contracts for next year allowed to leave early

    Things might be going well for Uno-X further up the ladder, but on a local level will they have anyone left to race against?

    #cwg ---------> WT !

    We'll have to see if that means they also take Hirt, Koch, Kochetkov, Valter, Zakarin and Zimmerman. They could of course have signed elsewhere already and not just been announced.

    ps. Taaramachine back in WT

    Looking forward to see van der Schueren sending Hirt and Zakarin to some kermesse races in the spring, to build up their stamina ;)

    Press release from the team. Still got the UCI hoops to jump through, but you'd think it was a virtual formality.

    #coop is still there.
    But apart from that, it's only various clubteams now - plus their own #daredevo development squad.

    Time for the bike sponsor merry-go-round:
    #mitchelton switch from Scott to Bianchi.
    #jumbo switch from Bianchi to Cervélo.
    #sunweb switch from Cervélo to ... Scott. :dizzy
