They never merged. Discoverx Channel kinda jumped into Astana in 2008 & 2009 and than again split off into RadioShack which nowadays has become Trek.

Officially though, US Postal / Discovery Channel ended back in 2007,while RadioShack was a new formed team.

After a merger with Leopard.
Which memorably had the anagram cited in the clinic viewtopic.php?p=407497#p407497 that won the best joke in the forum 2011.

Can't remember UCI having so many World Championships already assigned so early.

2019 - Harrogate, UK
2020 - Aigle, CH
2021 - Bruges/Leuven, BEL
2022 - Wollongong, AUS
2023 - Glasgow, UK
2024 - Zürich, CH

For Zürich from tagesanzeiger.ch -> https://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/sport/rad/die-radwm-faehrt-mitten-durch-die-zuercher-altstadt/story/14575010

... over the Rudolf Brun Bridge, past the Kunsthaus and from there out of town towards Witikon, where the journey leads via Zollikerberg, Zumikon, Küsnacht and Zumikon [rather Zollikon] down to Seestrasse again, back towards Sechseläutenplatz. This results in 435 vertical metres per round,
....
Finally, the professionals will complete the final round seven times - which means 246 kilometres and 4175 metres of altitude difference for them including the journey.

Any idea what Wollongong is gonna be like, except for the 2nd best cycling location name?
ATM your guess is as good as ours.

All anyone knows is that it's likely to start in Sydney for publicity, and have a finishing circuit. There are some 5-7 km climbs there that can be used fairly easily, but the cynic in me says it will probably just be rolling hills or even a pan flat sprinters course.

In whose interest would it be to make it completely flat?
