Peter Sagan will join Bora-Argon 18 for 2017 and the German team appears set for a promotion to the WorldTour. "The whole image will change next year," say the team's current cyclists.

Several riders will leave the team, including Brit Scott Thwaites, and only a handful will stay – all say that Sagan's superstar status will mean it will not be the same Bora-Argon 18 team anymore.
