Would be a really good signing for Trek.

I could also see him at Ineos and UAE

Trek would make sense, as they have Italian co-sponsor. Probably want a few Italian riders on the team.

Cataldo wont race for much longer and injured :(

They have Ciccone through 2024.

Mosca outgoing contract. Baroncini as well, who has struggled as a pro. What happens with Tiberi? Who knows.

They dont any more Italian riders than those atm, so signing a young Italian sprinter/classics guy would be good for them.

Depending on how much value you give Ciro's Tweets, he said Tiberi is due to leave after 2023, potentially even a mid-season swap to Astana on the cards...

I'd like to see Baroncini renewed, a lot of his issues have been injury related, that top class rider in 2021 is still there I believe
 
More riders have departed Zaaf and/or found new teams. Maggie Coles-Lyster, Michaela Drummond and Heidi Franz have all left this week, although not mentioned any new teams, however they all appear be riding for their national teams for a couple of upcoming races (either on the track or road). Mareille Meijering has signed for Movistar, Lucie Joiner for Coop Hitec and Lizzie Standard for Israel. That leaves 8 riders left with about a week until the start of La Vuelta Feminina.
 
1.5 million a year for Tobias Foss. The cycling world has gone completely mad.
Apparently Ineos, UAE, Israel or Bahrain are the most likely destination according to Norwegian Eurosport.

yesterday I saw an interview where Foss said the Olympic TT next year is a big target and that good TT equipment is important factor for team change. That basically means Bahrain, Israel and UAE should not be good options?

Has to be Ineos. Also bc he'll never be GC leder in UAE and Ineos is desperat enough to pay 1.5 mil for Foss.

It’s ridiculous that people still buy that BS. As if a team with three of the best six cyclists in the world would have a small budget…
Not small, but they don't pay Ineos or UAE level salaries. Lately they've changed pretty much all their suppliers, and partnered with a gambling site and a bitcoin company. I assume not because they were swimming in money...

Jumbo‘s next main sponsor will obviously be a bitcoin company. The riders will partly be paid in bitcoin.

To me, this seems a bit dangerous and not too trustworthy… I wonder why they agreed with this sponsor.

What do you think, am I too cautious?…

Don't think they'll be their main sponsor... the company will probably already be gone by then, like most bitcoin companies :)

It will probably be something like Visma-Cervélo. They've already signed half of Norway to their development team.
