Shouldn't it be for 2017?
No, their contract lasts for 1st August 'til the end of the season. Many if not most stagiaires are not only not retained for the following season, but there is never the intention of signing them permanently. See for instance Tinkoff signing three.
Ok. I'm confusing neo pro' with stagiaires :eek:
Good point, can someone tell me the difference between being neo-pro and stagiaire ?
Neos sign at the winter market for a whole season at least, while stagiaires can be signed and join immediatly the team in August ?

Stagiare is basically to test a rider or to give him an oppertunity to proof himself before the team (or another team) sign the rider. It can also be used by teams to give someone an oppertunity to get to know the team or get someone closer to the team to sign them later (Costa - Etixx for example). A neo pro has to get a minimum contract of 2 years if I am not mistaken and that is a normal contract just like any other pro rider.
 
Okay that's pretty simple at the end of the day, thanks for the explanation !
I was just wondering if stagiaires would already ride for their new team even if the seasons not over. But it seems to be the case !
