Cycling Weekly’s 2012-2013 Transfer Index

With the August 1 transfer embargo passed, teams are now free to announce who will be riding for them in 2013.

Last year’s coming and goings centered around the demise of HTC-Highroad, the founding of GreenEDGE and mergers between Leopard-Trek and RadioShack, and Omega Pharma and Quick Step. Without as many changes and possible uncertainty on the team front, the transfer market could be even livelier this winter.
