#bikeexchange 9672 points - 1385 above the relegation zone

Major Scorers in 2021 - Yates, Matthews and Chaves

Significant Transfers: IN (none - maybe Sobrero) OUT (Chaves)

They finished 19th this year, even behind Lotto. Both Yates and Matthews had so-so years. Copeland was talking earlier on this week about the team trying to be less reliant on that duo. However it's difficult to see where else major points can come from.

The large buffer should see them safe, but with little depth to the team, an injury to either of their big names could spell trouble.

#movistar 9609 points - 1322 above the relegation zone

Major Scorers in 2021 - Valverde, Mas and Lopez

Significant Transfers: IN (Aranburu and Sosa) OUT (Lopez and Soler)

Neither Lopez or Soler scored what they are capable of, but losing them isn't the best way to ensure safety. However unlike BikeExchange they are moving in the right direction after an 11th placed finish this year. They've also got a bit more back-up than the Australian team.

Should be okay, but with the usual caveats about injuries and Valverde's age.
