Rohan Dennis, whose contract with Bahrain-Merida was terminated during the men's road race at the Yorkshire World Championships, could be on his way to Movistar, as the Australian shops around for a new team before the start of the 2020 season.

The two-time world time trial champion successfully defended his rainbow bands in Yorkshire, beating Belgium's Remco Evenepoel by more than a minute. However, the quest for a new contract will not be a similar race against the clock, as Dennis will have many suitors this off-season looking to acquire his signature.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
