There are plenty of big names on the market this off-season, and with the transfer window having opened on August 1 we're now finding out where they're headed

TAGS:

Cycling’s transfer window swung wide open on August 1, meaning teams are free to announce which riders are coming and going for the 2018 season.

The biggest move of the transfer season so far is Mikel Landa’s move from Team Sky to Movistar, a transfer which had been widely rumoured since the Tour de France.

Other big moves include Warren Barguil leaving Team Sunweb to join Fortuneo Oscaro, and Alexander Kristoff moving from Katusha-Alpecin to UAE Team Emirates with Marcel Kittel switching from Quick-Step Floors to replace him.

Others have called it a day with Tom Boonen and Alberto Contador both retiring.

This is expected to be an exciting period of transfers, with a number of big name riders expected to be changing teams for the 2018 season.
