Lots (and lots) of rumours flying around about who might be joining the team next year, but with an already full squad of thirty riders, some will obviously need to leave.

We know of nine riders who have contracts for next year, so that leaves twenty one to ponder over.

Gets A Better Offer Elsewhere

Politt - A couple of teams are after him (Bora, Deceuninck or INEOS?)
MWS - Not many good riders available for Bjarne to bring to NTT/Velux if he wants to Dane-ify the team



Not WT Level

Badilatti - Has had a fair crack of the whip, but not really produced the results
Cataford - Still very limited. Got kept on for this year though, so might snag another extension
McCabe - It would be a bit unfair if he only got one truncated season to show what he can do, but the team should be looking to give Einhorn chances

Borderline Cases

Biermans - He's done okay. His nationality could count against him. Does the team want more Belgians that Israelis?
Hollenstein - Solid, but upgrades are always good
Piccoli - In the same boat as McCabe as this year is his first season at this level. I'd keep him on for another year
Raim - Longest serving rider now. Will hopefully get kept on, but needs to start producing more in the classics
Schelling - Better than Badilatti, but older. One more year
