There are some strong rumors now that  #unox Markus Hoelgaard is leaving the Uno-x team and will ride for #trek Trek-Segafredo next year.
The team manager just tweeted this: "We cannot provide a WT program yet, and he deserves every opportunity to follow his boy's dream." That sounds like he will be off to a bigger team indeed.

Now, on one hand, #unox has always been about developing riders, and they won't be stopping their riders if they get a WT offer.
On the other hand, the team has announced that they want to become a WT team for 2023 themselves. - and for that you need a.o. WT-level riders.

Will they simply 'buy back' Leknessund, Foss, Hoelgaard etc. by offering them a contract again when their current deals run out (but that's only at the end of 2022 for Leknessund and Foss)? You can't build a WT application on Ådne Holter, Lasse Norman Hansen, and Niklas Eg alone.
