Connect the Dots - Transfer Predictions 2020/21
« on: March 14, 2020, 17:48 »
Well, we need something to talk about during the 9 month off-season.

The 'Transfers and Rumors' thread very much is full of news from other sources. This is a more speculative version of the same thread, asking "who should go where?"

...or as it's been said in previous years' threads, "predict the transfer before the rumour".

This PCS page is quite a useful starting point to see who might be on the move.

    I'll even make a list of WT names that catch my eye.

     #ag2r

    Bardet - something's not right here
    Naesen - seems happy, but if a big team comes knocking who knows..

     #astana

    Some payment issues at Astana again. Would Lopez and the Izagirres fancy more secure earnings on a different team?

     #bahrain

    Teuns

     #bora

    Majka - bound to be CCC rumours, though seems happy enough in his niche at Bora

     #ccc

    19 riders out of contract! GVA the biggest name

     #ef

    Vanmarcke

     #groupama

    All their big names are out of contract, but difficult to see any of them leaving

     #israel

    23 riders out of contract!

     #lotto

    De Gendt - as I said in race chat it's not certain he'll re-sign due to new Belgian tax laws

     #mitchelton

    Yateseseses - will they split up?
    Affini

     #ntt

    24 riders out of contract! Riis might have a major clear out if he gets funds.

     #ineos

    Froome - Ineos no doubt would love to keep him, but are they willing to pay with him in his current shape?
    Kwiatkowski
    Moscon - surely got to be on the way out, but there's bound to be takers

     #jumbo

    De Plus

     #sunweb

    Oomen - people are always leaving Sunweb

     #trek

    Porte - must be on quite a big contract
    Stuyven

     #uae

    Aru
    Philipsen - will he continue to be happy to be third in line behind Gaviria and Kristoff?

    Gonzalo Serrano --------------> #movistar ?

    A fairly obvious one here as the WT team are desperate for some local talent to bolster their ranks. The big question  is who is his agent? If it's you-know-who, then scrub this idea.

    Politt ----------> #bora ?

    The likely cancellation of the entire spring campaign means no opportunity for him to see that he could be successful and win the big ones with I-SUN.

    He was high-fiving Ackermann after his win in in Almeria and the German team would be a natural choice as Sagan's star is on the wane.
