Of the young British riders, Hayter certainly has the talent, but I imagine Tokyo will be the focus for next year.Van Baarle re-signs for 3 years.
Squad of 20 currently for Team INEOS.
8 left unsigned - Poels (Bahrain-Merida), Kiryienka (1 year deal), Knees (1 year deal), De La Cruz (Movistar Team), Golas (1 year deal), Halvorsen (EF Education First), Henao (2 year deal), Basso (?)
Sky/Ineos have never dropped below 28 riders and my prediction of moves/deals currently has them at 24 riders. To me there doesn't seem to be 3/4 names on the market that would interest Ineos so could they be buying out contracts? Dennis for example. Maybe they will have a bunch of youngsters again like the last couple of years?
Only names I can think of that would interest them are:
But then I don't think these are likely (except Pidcock) as they will either re-sign or have been linked elsewhere.
The only other realistic name I can think of is Pete Kennaugh. I've no idea how he's doing though and whether he's interested in being a pro cyclist again.
