In the meantime (ie. in 2022) Mihkels will ride for Ampler and De Pooter with Hagens Berman.

There are a few other transfers already known:

Frigo -------> #israel

Martin Lopez ------> #astana (but not 100% confirmed)

Ciuccarelli --------> #androni (however we thought the same about Conca and Colleoni)

    Teuns -------->  #lotto or #iwg ?

    today's Het Nieuwsblad reports, that he is highly likely to leave Bahrain at least, especially now after being forced to ride Roubaix and Tour de Romandie.

    Also some #gazprom news: according to his brother, Mathias Vacek has signed a WT deal for the coming two years. Earlier rumours said that Trek was interested.

    (tbc) #gazprom Mathias Vacek --> #trek Trek Segafredo

    https://bici.pro/news/politica/casa-vacek-karel-parla-momenti-duri-mathias/

    That's good news for him, but I guess it means he'll stay without a contract for the moment, unless some conti team is willing to pick him up for those couple of months only. I also don't think he is eligible to become a stagiare anymore?!

    a little update on this today: #lotto is still very interested, but also a reunion with former BMC boss Rik Verbrugghe at #israel is an option.

    The threat of relegation would put on a dampener on that I think. Sure, any rider signing for them (or Lotto) might have a clause letting them not have to join if they aren't WT in 2023, but who wants to go looking for another team in October when most business is already done and wage budgets are limited.

    Of course some riders might not mind not being WT especially if the money is good (Cousin Dan signed up when he thought they were gonna be PCT). Wildcards for 1-day races wouldn't be an issue and even a Tour invite wouldn't be out of the question (B&B aren't exactly setting the world alight in 2022).

    He isn't. Pro contract in 2021 (and the first months of 2022), so no more stagiairing for Mathias Vacek.

    Confirmation and "in the coming weeks, we will be announcing more young talent who will step up alongside Marco".

    Gee would be the obvious one based on his Gran Camino performance. Hollyman, Goldstein and Puppio should be in the mix as well.

    Looking more and more likely.

    However Arensman, who was also rumoured to the Dutch team, could be heading elsewhere in the transfer carousel.....

    There aren't many transfers stories about that don't involved Ineos or Jumbo.

    https://twitter.com/WielerFlits/status/1524690541228826625

    BikeExchange are also interested. The Australian team would also like to re-unite the Yateseseses.

    And apparently Davide Rebellin has left Work Service. PCS lists him as retired, but I don't think it's true. He initially wanted to come to Sibiu at least

    Don't see this happening, for the above reasons. Also, Nairo seems to be happy at #arkea, they are destined for a WT licence - why change teams?

    there's an article about Hirt on Idnes, but unfortunately behind a paywall

    https://www.idnes.cz/sport/cyklistika/jan-hirt-giro-budoucnost.A220525_203124_cyklistika_ten

    from what I can see in the preview on Google, it also links him towards BikeExchange, but apparently mainly because they congratulated him for his win on their social media

    I'm sure I read though that Kristoff was extending (or had been offered an extension) at Intermarche, and why not Turgis to Deceuninck as they seek to refresh their classics team.

    According to them an agreement has been reached for a 3-yr deal.

    Quote
    What does this do to Uno-X's opportunities to participate in the Tour and the biggest races?

    This strengthens their chances. There will be another argument for including Uno-X, so those negotiations will be easier. The tour organizer will also see that they raise their ambitions and are in development. The combination of Kristoff and Halland Johannessen will only help them to be invited to the big races.

    Also, I see the signing as an statement of intent which they can utilise to attract other successful Scandi riders, it's not just a team for promising youngsters and WT rejects.

    Again the deal is seemingly done. GT (of his choosing) leadership the major carrot. The surprise is that EF can afford him.
