After winning the polka dot jersey and two stages at the Tour de France, Warren Barguil will leave Team Sunweb for new pastures at Fortuneo-Oscaro for the 2018 season.

Barguil will join the French second division Professional Continental team on a three-year deal, which should see him being able to lead the team at the 2018 Tour de France, something that would not have been possible at Sunweb with Tom Dumoulin expected to target the race.
