I just hope Tony gains back some of his confidence and winning ways, which he seemed to have lost with Katusha. He used to be quite a prolific winner. I used to love cheering him on.

Also Bianchi has/will release the limited edition of their bikes with decals from Groenewegen and roglic that they used in the Tour:
 
Re: LottoNL-Jumbo

Great signing for them...if Martins gets anywhere close to his former level he will have a huge impact. Having him in a GT reduces the need for more help in the flat and TTTs. For Quickstep he always was a reliable part of the sprint train...meaning that Dylan should benefit as well.
People forgot how strong Martin was just a few years ago...3-4 sprinter teams together struggled to bring back his solo attacks.
I expect him to be a co-leader in the cobbled classics and helper for Dylan/Roglic in the GTs.

Lotto leaves sponsoring after this season but Jumbo greatly increased their share

It's because the Jumbo supermarkets are expanding into Belgium. Which is also why they signed Van Aert. They needed a high profile Belgian rider
They also tried signing Tim Wellens, and didn't they also sign De Plus?

I think they're still trying to sign De Plus. Wellens declined because even though he liked the team, he mainly wanted to stay at Soudal. Not sure if it's good for Wellens, but the team must be happy.

Wellens did Lotto-Soudal a great favour. His support would be far superior at LottoJumbo, but then again at Soudal Benoot and he have pretty much all the freedom to do what they want. Lambrecht and Vanhoucke are big talents, but apart from that their team is piss weak.

Campenaerts, De Ghendt, De Buyst, Keukeleire?

Forgot about De Gendt, who is a class rider. Campenaerts is a good time-trialist and De Buyst and Keukeleire are fine riders, more useful as team leaders themselves than as domestiques, but not the ones who consistently play a big role within World Tour races. Benoot and Wellens are, De Gendt in the role of breakaway specialist also is.

I don’t even know who their clothing partner is right now? Exteondo? Or well at least they used to be when it was Belkin and/or Blanco. AGU is totally awful, but their pro line must be better.

their current clothing sponsor is Shimano S-Phyre

AGU was the Rabobank clothing partner
 
Their new signing, Laurens De Plus:

Laurens De Plus will be racing for Team LottoNL-Jumbo for the next two seasons. According to the nearly 23-year-old Fleming, the formation of manager Richard Plugge offers him the best prospect for the future. “I think this is an ideal team for me”, he explains his choice to ride for the Dutch squad. “Team LottoNL-Jumbo has proven to work well with young riders and to be able to develop them further. Seeing how the team rode in the Tour motivated me. This is a unique opportunity for me to develop further and hopefully to be able to perform well later on in grand tours. The good atmosphere at Team LottoNL-Jumbo is also very important to me.”
