In addition to a buttload of riders, they might have to get some new staff members too. Riis is gone, and Lars Bak has just been named the manager of the new Uno-X women's team. Lars Michaelsen is staying on by the looks of it, but given that it will be hard to recreate the work, he did at Astana, I could understand if he wanted to move on as well. But it's probably not easy to find a new job as a DS right now either.

Really no problem for any WT team to find a new DS. The CN forum is full of candidates.
 
Whats the best they can do at this point in time?

Atm, they have Max Walscheid, Domenico Pozzovivo, Andreas Stokbro, Michael Gogl, Dylan Sunderland, and Victor Campenaerts, and seems Carlos Barbero. I'd imagine they'll keep van Rensburg, Dlamini and Thomson, so they're up to 10.

Out of who's available on PCS, and what I assume is a small budget, I'd assume they'll look to bring back Nizzolo, and I think they should make a play for Cav just cos of the media exposure he brings. After that Simon Clarke is still available and would be a good signing, Mader would be excellent to resign, someone like Marezcko will pick up wins in lower races for them,

If they added those 5, and then rounded out with maybe guys like Vandenbergh, Van Keirsbulck, Dyball, Narvaez (if not going back to Ineos), Barta etc they might be able to pull a salvageable team together

That's a Pro Conti team. They should also be going for Jay Mccarthy unless he's been extended by Bora or signed by someone else and I've not heard

You were right about Barbero, Dlamini, Nizzolo and Clarke. However, Marezcko is going to Vini Zabu, and Barta to EF, while Vandenbergh is retiring. Then they also got Sean Bennett, Claeys, Frankiny, K. Vacek, and Wisniowski.
