Could this improve their chances for signing more and better riders? Right now the only new additions for next year are Kristoff and Louis Bendixen? I was expecting at least somewhat more........
They have 25 riders signed for next season now, so should be room for 5 more.

The riders in this year squad that doesn’t have a new contract yet it is announced that Hulgaard and Kristian Kulset will retire. Earlier this autumn it was said that Saugstad, Sleen and Iver Skaarseth will not be renewed.
That leaves Blikra, Urianstad, Wærsted and Sindre Kulset in uncertainty.

I struggle to see many potential Danish/Norwegian riders Uno-X can bring in, other than Carl Fredrik Hagen or Andreas Stokbro. So perhaps Hagen, Stokbrand then a 1 year contract for some of 4 that i mentioned above to fill up the numbers. Also possible to see one more guy from the Developement team being promoted, for example Bevort which was 6th at U23 WC ITT.

Would be slightly disappointing if the only new signings are Kristoff, Hagen, Bendixen and perhaps Stokbro + some kids from the Developement team. Even if I am really excited about Stian Fredheim.

But to be fair, next to signing Kristoff, I think the most important thing is to not let Tobias Halland Johannesen, Søren Wærenskjold ordene other of the young guys go to a WT-team.

Kristoff, Hagen and Stokbro as their main signings for next year would be okay, but not more than that. Anyway I think that next year could be a make or break if they are to succeed with their current line-up, that is with THJ and Wærenskjold as their main future prospects.

Wærenskjold seem to have a contract until the end of next season and THJ the year after that. I think that the team have to achieve good results next seasons, and bigger and more long term signings before the 2024 season than this year. Kristoff and Hagen aren't really long term prospects, and Wærenskjold and THJ needs to be supported and supplemented by better riders.

If they are to continue the current Norwegian/Danish strategy, I'm talking about some of the best names that are out of contract after next season. Like Cort, Honoré, Foss, Leknessund and Hoelgaard.

Them dodgy knees, is it something that runs in the family? They've been into road cycling for two years and are already experiencing issues, that's a bit worrisome. Signs of a red flag, even. If my translator is correct, I understand this has been a problem for Tobias for a very long time and this was the second surgery he had performed on his knee, that's bad.

Is these kind of injuries normally just related to road cycling and not MTB?
 
A month ago Jarle Fredagsvik, the main Norwegian Cycling journalist tweeted this:


Silly season:
Lars Saugstad, Uno-X (not renewed)
Kristian Kulset, Uno-X (not renewed)
Torjus Sleen, Uno-X (not renewed)
Morten Hulgaard, Uno-X (not renewed)
Iver Skaarseth, Uno-X (not renewed)

That could mean that the other 5 will get a contract or that its not been decided yet.
It surprises me that they seem to ditch Sleen and maybe keep a rider like Sindre Kulset instead.
Today Sykkelmagasinet confirms that Erlend Blikra will not get a new contract.

That leaves Sindre Kulset, Syver Wærsted and Martin Urianstad in limbo. If all 3 of them get a new contract it takes the number up to 28, which leaves 2 open spots.
