Finally some good news for Reynders. He has signed for Bingoal, albeit on the feeder team.

He won't be able to ride the WT, but at least he'll manage to have a decent .Pro and .1 program. Hopefully he is back at WT/Pro level next year.
good news indeed and something I expected

Lotto or Bingola should sign Reynders, even for their devlopment team and do like Alpecin awhile ago with GvK and Vermote
 
Lukas Pöstlberger said joining a CT team is not an option for him. He will do Tour of the Alps and Tour of Austria for the national team instead


The article isn't 100% clear about the Jayco situation, but from what it sounds like, he could have signed a new deal back in May. His manager advised him to wait for a better offer, though, which never came in the end.
 
If he is not even on a CT team (pardon the redundancy), how confident can he be of being selected for the national team?
I'd think it doesn't need much more than a quick chat with the national coach.

And even without a team, I guess he may still be a contender for a spot at the Olympics as well. So they'll probably be interested in him doing some races.
 
Do we reckon Vollering will depart for UAE or Lidl-Trek?
I doubt she ends up leaving, but we'll see.
I've always believed that AG Insurance-Soudal, the women's Wolfpack, would try to get Kopecky on board after this season. If they have the financial depth to get her attention and that of a more than decent extra domestique, that is. The fact that they are Belgian, have Jolien D'hoore as DS and ride Specialized bikes, are interesting assets. But it's a guess, and SD Worx obviously wants to continue with Lotte too.

I think that is much more likely to happen than Vollering leaving. But both of them are likely to be at or very close to the heights of their careers right now, so they obviously have to consider their options.
