August marks the start of the official cycling transfer window, with plenty of UCI WorldTour stars confirming where they will be riding from 2017 onwards.
And already, with deals having been done earlier in the season but not allowed to be confirmed until Monday August 1, no shortage of of big-name transfers have been revealed in the fortnight or so since.
Oleg Tinkov’s departure from the sport means the Tinkoff squad are all looking for new teams for 2017, while Bora-Argon 18 (to be renamed Bora-hansgrohe) are likely to be busy as they bid to step up to WorldTour level next year.
It is fitting, therefore, that Tinkoff’s world champion Peter Sagan was among the first riders officially snapped up by Bora for the 2017 campaign.
So who is off to pastures new? We’ve rounded up some of the biggest transfers below.
