I wonder whats about Aleotti.
Fabbro ist roumorded to go to Eolo and Politt has also already confirmed to a new Team.
Aleotti could be leaving because he would be a pure domestique next year. This year he got some chances for himself... but next year with Adria, Martinez, Roglic and Sobbrero coming in there won't be a lot of room left in the WT races for own ambitions. He would be a very good fit around the Roglic squad for GTs and one-weeks but I could understand if he leaves to have more freedom.

Palzer was apparently counted in by radsport-news when they reported that Tratnik isn't coming with Roglic and Koretzy was listed as a maybe. I wouldn't count out the chance of Archbold staying at Bora. That depends if Bennet has enough of a pull to get him to his new team and Archbold was with Bora for a long time and could still do leadout work for Welsford and Meuus in smaller races.

There could be still 1-2 places open at Bora. I think getting Lamperti would be great (don't see him in the emrger team). Maybe there's also more to the rumour of Brenner being unhappy at DSM...

If Aleotti wants chances to ride for himself, he needs to go to a Wanty / Cofidis kind of team. In a top team, he does not have the level to claim leadership apart from TIER 4 races such as Sibiu or Slovenia (which could even not be the case next year)
 
Euskaltel are announcing Mikel* tomorrow!

*Mujika that is. Or it's most likely someone being promoted from the devo team, a Caja Rural/Equipo Kern rider, or Iker Bonillo, who's been rumoured to join the team.

It turned out to be none of the above, but instead the news that Joan Bou will still be in good Company next year, unlike Peio Goikoetxea, who will finish his career in Bourges today, and Juanjo Lobato, who has already ridden his last race.
