A contract with a team is much like a normal employer's contract. Cyclists are not actually 'bought', but sometimes contracts are made void and then the team is compensated. This is rare, however. Usually cyclists switch teams when their contract ends, or they get a new contract. If a cyclist doesn't fit in with a team, both parties can decide to terminate the contract.Andie_B said:Hello!
When all is said and done, if Astana still exists as a team, are the cyclists who have a contract with the team obliged to honor it, or is this an opportunity to switch to another team with out penalty?
Like some other sports, can cyclists "be bought" by one team from another?
Does anyone know how long Kloden is under contract with Astana?
Which criteria does a team have to meet to become a professional team which is automatically invited to the Grand Tours not a wild card team?
What is a test team?
