Keep up to date with all the latest transfers with Cycling Weekly

As we head into the cycling off-season, professional cycling's transfer merry-go-round is continuing. While many of the big deals have already been sewn up, there are still teams and riders scrambling for contracts ahead of 2024. The announcements could have taken place from August onwards, but many squads are only just revealing who will be wearing their kits next year.

August 1 is always a big deal in the world of professional cycling. It is the day riders can officially announce that they are moving teams, unveil their new direction, and rumours can finally be put to bed. 

Rather than announcing each transfer individually, we will collect together all the transfers in the men's and women's pelotons here, as and when they are officially revealed.

Many deals will have been done in the weeks and months running up to August, hence the myriad of rumours that were given air. Some teams announce their new riders in one big splurge, while others strategically drip-feed the names throughout the rest of the year; the news does not necessarily need to be shared until December 31. However, riders and teams just had between August 1-15 if they want to announce mid-season moves.

Big moves

Sam Bennett and Victory Lafay sign for the newly-renamed Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale

AG2R Citroën have a new name and sponsors - Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale is the fresh title - and it means they can finally announce who will be riding for them in 2024.

The headline name is probably Sam Bennett, with the Irish sprinter moving across from Bora-Hansgrohe after a difficult couple of years. The 33-year-old won two stages of the Tour de France and the green jersey in 2020, and has won five stages of the Vuelta a España, as well as three stages of the Giro d'Italia, but won just six times during his two years back with Bora.

Now, he has a fresh start at his new French team, and it will be interesting to see how he gets on.

He is joined by Victor Lafay, one of the coming names of French cycling, who won a stage of the Tour this year. The 27-year-old was rumoured to be wanted by multiple squads, but Decathlon AG2R secured his name for 2024.

Tobias Foss joins Ineos Grenadiers

Former world time trial champion Tobias Foss has joined Ineos Grenadiers from Jumbo-Visma, becoming the team's third signing in the process. The Norwegian won the Tour de l'Avenir in 2019 and has previously finished in the top 10 at the Giro d'Italia too.

Foss has a three-year contract. 

"I would like to have a season where I can be consistent with the best. I don’t have any specific goals, but I want to take my chance, contribute to the team getting good results and go for a medal at the Olympics,” he said, in the statement from the team.

Gianni Moscon moves from Astana Qazaqstan to Soudal Quick-Step

After two "difficult" years at Astana Qazaqstan, the Italian Classics rider Gianni Moscon has joined Quick-Step, to bolster the Belgian's squad's options in one-day races. 

The Italian spent the first six years of his career at Team Sky/Ineos Grenadiers, during which time he won the Tour of Guangxi and the Arctic Race of Norway, as well as finishing third at Il Lombardia and fourth at Paris-Roubaix. His return at Astana was less impressive, however, with no victories.

Moscon suspended by Sky in 2017 over racist comments made towards Kevin Reza, and was also disqualified from Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne in 2020 for throwing a bike at another rider following a crash. 

Luke Plapp heads to Jayco AlUla

Luke Plapp has joined Jayco AlUla, signing a four-year deal, in a move which has seen him break his Ineos Grenadiers contract early.

The Australian champion is "coming home" to the Australian squad, the announcement early on Tuesday morning said. The man from Melbourne joined Ineos at the beginning of 2022 after a battle between five WorldTour teams for his signature, despite never having ridden a road race outside of a national, continental or world event.

“It honestly does feel like I'm coming home, I'm such a proud Australian and to now be able to ride for the Australian team, it's a real honour," Plapp said. "I just can't wait to get started; the next four years are going to be amazing on this team."

Nairo Quintana rejoins Movistar

In a surprise move Movistar have re-signed their former leader Nairo Quintana for 2024.

The Colombian was disqualified from the Tour de France after traces of tramadol were found in his blood in 2022. He was then dropped from his Arkea Samsic team.

He did not find a team in 2023 and so did not race. 

Quintana left Movistar after the 2019 season in which he placed in the Tour’s top ten later saying that he “wanted to be happy” and didn’t want to “wage war” with other potential leaders within the team, an apparent reference to Enric Mas, who’s star was rising at the time. Now he’ll ride alongside Mas at Movistar in 2024.

On rejoining Movistar Quintana said: “It’s super emotional for me to be back home. It’s been such a tough year. The sleepless nights, so many days of sacrifice, going on my bike and trying to keep pushing, under the rain or the scorching sun. But it was all worth it. 

“I won’t waste this opportunity. I know the values of the team, the values of sport. I will give my everything do things right, and I want to help the team achieve the best results.”

Ineos Grenadiers finally make signings, with AJ August and Óscar Rodríguez joining

Almost three months after the transfer window opened, Ineos Grenadiers have finally started to announce their signings for 2024, with two riders revealed so far: AJ August and Óscar Rodríguez.

The former, an 18-year-old from Rochester, New York, has impressed at junior level on both the road and cyclo-cross and will turn professional with Ineos next season.

Rodríguez joins from Movistar, where he spent two seasons after two seasons with Astana. He won a stage of the Vuelta a España in 2018.

Human Powered Health strengthen

Having survived at Women's WorldTour level, Human Powered Health has strengthened by signing Ruth Edwards (née Winder), alongside Romy Kasper from AG Insurance-Soudal Quick-Step and Maëlle Grossetête from FDJ-Suez.

They have also given a contract extension to Audrey Cordon-Ragot, as they look to go in for the Classics next season.

Rémi Cavagna and Davide Formolo join Movistar

After a quiet start in the transfer market, Movistar have announced a host of new riders, the latest being Davide Formolo and Rémi Cavagna. 

The former, a Giro d'Italia stage winner, joins from UAE Team Emirates, where he acted as a super mountain domestique. 

Cavagna is the current French time trial champion, and has spent the last seven seasons of his career at Soudal Quick-Step.

The duo have both signed three year contracts, and join the Spanish team at the same time as Manlio Moro, Javier Romo, Carlos Canal and Pelayo Sánchez. 

Abi Smith and Josie Nelson join DSM-firmenich

Twenty-one-year-old multi-discipline rider Josie Nelson and EF Education-TIBCO rider Abi Smith have both signed for DSM-firmenich.

The pair will race alongside British national champion Pfeiffer Georgi.

Nelson, who has made her name as a cyclo-cross rider but also increasingly performs well on the road joins the team from Coop-Hitec.

Smith, who is also 21, has spent the past two season racing for EF Education-Tiboc, which is folding at the end of the season. Her best results include a top ten on GC at the tour down under and top 20 at the Women’s Tour.

However, her 2023 season was mostly derailed by covid and injury to her knee.

The pair join alongside Italian Rachele Barbieri. 

Tim Declercq to ride for Lidl-Trek

'The Tractor', Tim Declercq, is to ride for Lidl-Trek from 2024, strengthening the team's sprint squad, surely to be part of the team supporting Jonathan Milan.

The Belgian has been with Quick-Step's various iterations for seven years, often seen on the front of the peloton, powering away, controlling the break. He is also a good option to have in the Classics.

Primož Roglič joins Bora-Hansgrohe

After a week of speculation, Primož Roglič was revealed as a Bora-Hansgrohe rider for 2024 at the beginning of October. The Slovenian spent eight seasons in yellow, winning three Vueltas a España and the Giro d'Italia with the Dutch team, but was tempted away by his new German paymasters, who had to break his contract to do so.

The 33-year-old will be with Bora for at least a couple of seasons, and will target the Tour de France next year.

Michael Mørkøv heads to Astana-Qazaqstan with Mark Cavendish

Along with Astana Qazaqstan's announcement that Mark Cavendish would ride for one more year, there was also the news that Michael Mørkøv would be heading to the sky-blue team too. This might be just as important, as the Dane has a reputation as one of the best leadout men in the world: can he do it at least one more time with his old mate Cavendish?

Oliver Knight joins Cofidis

22-year-old Rayner Foundation rider Oliver Knight is the latest young Brit to move to the WorldTour, where he will ride for Cofidis. He has been riding for AVC Aix-en-Provence for the last few years, but has also had stagiaire spots at UAE Team Emirates and Cofidis in the last two years.

He said it was a "dream come true" to step up to cycling's biggest stage.

Matt Walls joins Groupama-FDJ

A fortnight after revealing to Cycling Weekly that he did not have a team for 2024, Matt Walls does have a spot for next year, at Groupama-FDJ.

The Olympic omnium champion suffered a horror crash on the track at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, and has endured an injury-stricken past 12 months, which  disrupted a crucial contract year with his current WorldTour team. However, he has now found a home in France, moving on from Bora-Hansgrohe, where he spent three years.

Lukas Nerurkar joins EF Education-EasyPost

The latest young talent to roll off the Trinity Racing production line is Lukas Nerurkar, the 19-year-old boosting EF Education-EasyPost's young talent. The British rider joins  Jack Rootkin-Gray (20), Jardi Christian van der Lee (22), Darren Rafferty (20), and Archie Ryan (21) at the American squad next year.

Nerurkar, the son of Olympic marathon runner Richard, won a stage of the Giro Next Gen this year, also winning a mountain stage at the Orlen Nations Grand Prix.

He grew up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, before moving to Brighton when he was seven.

Cat Ferguson moves to Movistar

British 17-year-old Cat Ferguson will become one of the youngest riders ever to compete in cycling's highest tier, joining Movistar next year.

Currently, Ferguson rides for the Yorkshire-based team Shibden Hope Tech Apex, and has shone in her first year as a junior.

She won on her Nations Cup debut with Great Britain at the Piccolo Trofeo Alfredo Binda, then aged just 16, two years younger than other riders on the start list. Speaking to Cycling Weekly earlier this year, Ferguson said the victory was “quite a shock”.

She then went on to win the junior Tour of Flanders, the junior British time trial title, and a silver medal in the junior road race at the UCI World Championships in Glasgow.

Jack Rootkin-Gray steps up to WorldTour

Promising British talent Jack Rootkin-Gray will join EF Education-EasyPost for 2024, making the leap from Continental ranks to the WorldTour. 

The 20-year-old, who currently rides for Saint Piran, came fourth in the under-23 road race at the World Championships in Glasgow. He will now form part of EF's Classics squad.

George Bennett moves to Israel-Premier Tech

After two years with UAE Team Emirates, Kiwi climber George Bennett is heading to Israel-Premier Tech, a move which might see him being given more freedom. Before joining one super-team, he was at the other, spending seven years at Jumbo-Visma.

His biggest result is probably second at the 2020 edition of Il Lombardia, and Israel will be hoping to get some big results from him on the team's continued hunt for UCI points.

Carlos Verona joins Lidl-Trek after a five-year spell at Movistar

Spanish climber Carlos Verona has left Movistar after a five-year spell at the Pamplona based squad to join Lidl-Trek for 2024. 

Verona has signed a two-year deal with his new team and will provide increased firepower in the mountains at future Grand Tours. Lidl-Trek’s transfer business has seen them look to add an array of talent to further develop their chances in general classification racing.

Zoe Bäckstedt joins Canyon // SRAM

Zoe Bäckstedt has joined Canyon-SRAM in a mid season transfer after the demise of the EF Education-Tibco-SVB squad was recently confirmed.

Bäckstedt is currently one of the biggest stars of the women’s peloton and joined EF last August following on from a dominant junior career in which she became world champion in all of the major cycling disciplines.

The 18-year-old will join up with her father, Magnus, who was himself a highly successful professional but is now a sports director on the German team.

Claire Steels moves to Movistar from Israel-Premier Tech-Roland

After just one year on the Women's WorldTour, British rider Claire Steels has earned a big move to Movistar. The ride from Lincolnshire has had a breakout year, winning the ReVolta one-day race and achieving eye-catching results at many other events. Top 10s at Itzulia and the Tour de Suisse hinted at her big potential, and she will hope to continue to improve at Movistar, despite being 36. With Annemiek van Vleuten retiring, there is a big gap to fill at the Spanish team.

Henok Mulubrhan joins Astana-Qazaqstan

The reigning African Continental champion, Henok Mulubrhan, will join Astana-Qazaqstan from Green Project-Bardiani CSF-Faizanè next year. The 23 year old has won the African Continental Championships for two consecutive years, and is also the reigning champion of the tour of Qinghai Lake and the Tour du Rwanda.

Mulubrhan is the latest Eritrean rider to join the WorldTour, following the likes of Biniam Girmay, Merhawi Kudus and Natnael Berhane. 

Bradley Wiggins's son Ben signs for Hagens Berman Axeon

Talented British youngster Ben Wiggins has joined top development squad Hagens Berman Axeon for 2024. 

The team, which recently struck up a partnership with WorldTour outfit Jayco-AlUla, has a long history of developing top riders including Tao Geohegan Hart and Alex Dowsett among others.

Wiggins's signing comes hot off the back of his second place at the World Championship TT.

Wiggins said his signing with the squad was a "no-brainer".

Paris-Roubaix champ joins EF Education-Cannondale

After the EF Education-Tibco squad confirmed last week that it will close at the end of the year it's entire roster of riders are on the hunt for new spots in the pro peloton. Perhaps unsurprisingly several have jumped to the new EF Education-Cannondale team, run by different management but with much of the existing squad's sponsors. 

Alison Jackson, one of the team's biggest names, is the latest to make the move. She won Paris-Roubaix in spectacular style this year and also currently sports the Canadian national champion's jersey.

All eyes are now on the destination of Zoe Bäckstedt, one of the other big names on the team, to see where she lands.

Ryan Gibbons the latest to join Lidl-Trek

If there has been one constant in the first three weeks of August, it's Lidl-Trek announcing transfers. The newly Lidl-sponsored team has had a successful month in racing terms too, but they are also winning the transfer war.

Ryan Gibbons is the seventh rider to be joining the men's squad for next year, surely as some kind of leadout man for Mads Pedersen and new signing Jonathan Milan. UAE Team Emirates asw probably happy for Gibbons to leave seeing as it has also lost its only pure sprinter in Pascal Ackermann to Israel-Premier Tech.

Dani Martínez to Bora-Hansgrohe

After three years with Ineos Grenadiers, during which time he won Itzulia Basque Country and the Volta ao Algarve, Colombian Dani Martínez is heading to Bora-Hansgrohe.

Ben Tulett joins Jumbo-Visma

There is a such a depth of young talent in today's peloton that riders need to win big races to get recognised. Britain's Ben Tulett, still just 21, has managed to slip under the radar during his two-season stint at Ineos Grenadiers despite some seriously promising rides.

A GC win plus stage at the Tour of Norway this May for example, or two fifth places time trials at last year's Giro d'Italia, aged just 20.

Mikel Landa joins Soudal-Quick Step

Spanish GC rider and climber Mikel Landa will probably be hoping that a change of scene will yield a change of fortune. His four-year tenure at Bahrain Victorious has perhaps not shown the 33-year-old's talent off to its full extent, with just three wins during that time compared to 13 in the previous four years.

Soudal-Quick Step, with its traditionally Classics-focus, doesn't on the face of it seem like the obvious fit for Landa. But with young superstar Remco Evenepoel winning everything, that focus is changing: "We believe [Landa] is the right man to strengthen our squad as we gradually shift our attention to the general classification," the team said in a statement.

Matteo Jorgensen joins Jumbo-Visma

US rider Matteo Jorgensen has enjoyed something of a breakthrough season this year, riding with Movistar. Not only did he register a first pro win at the Tour Oman – one that he had long been building towards – but he also won the overall, points and youth classifications at the Tour of Oman and the youth classification at the Tour de Romandie. He was second overall in the Swiss race, too.

He can clearly ride a stage race, but some of the 24-year-old's most impressive results this year have come in major Classics – fourth at E3 and ninth at the Tour of Flanders, for example.

Fabio Jakobsen joins dsm-firmenich

Tour de France stage winner Fabio Jakobsen will be a dsm-firmenich rider from next year, after leaving Soudal Quick-Step. The 26-year-old spent six years with Quick-Step, during which time he won five stages at the Vuelta a España, a stage of the Tour, and two editions of Scheldeprijs.

The current European champion bounced back from a life-threatening injury he sustained at the Tour of Poland in 2020 to race and win once again; the Dutchman currently has 43 career wins.

Clara Copponi to Lidl-Trek from FDJ-Suez

Road and track star Clara Coponni is moving to Lidl-Trek from FDJ-Suez next season, after five years with the French team. 

The 24-year-old from Aix-en-Provence is largely a sprinter, finishing second behind dsm-firmenich's Charlotte Kool on a stage of the recent RideLondon Classique. The Frenchwoman won a stage of the Women's Tour in 2022.

Tao Geoghegan Hart moves to Lidl-Trek from Ineos Grenadiers

Tao Geoghegan Hart is to ride for Lidl-Trek from 2024, leaving Ineos Grenadiers after seven years with the British team.

The long-rumoured transfer was confirmed by his new squad on Thursday morning, which sees the Londoner join Lidl-Trek on a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old is currently out of action with a fractured hip which he suffered during the Giro d'Italia while he was riding high on general classification. 

According to the Trek press release, he has been undergoing "intensive rehabilitation" at a clinic in Amsterdam to "regain his strength and mobility day by day".

Ethan Vernon leaves Soudal Quick-Step for Israel-Premier Tech

Freshly crowned world elimination champion Ethan Vernon will head to Israel-Premier Tech in 2024, it was announced on Wednesday morning.

The 22-year-old sprinter has won stages at the Tour de Romandie and Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, and will continue to combine track and road goals at his new team.

Meanwhile, he will be replaced at Quick-Step by American Luke Lamperti, who has won the US national crit championships three times, as well as many under-23 races.

Mavi García joins Jayco-AlUla

Spanish champion Mavi García will race in the colours of Jayco-AlUla from 2024 as her current Liv Racing TeqFind squad merges with her new Australian employers to become its development team.

The Spaniard claimed a fifth national road title this year, and finished seventh at the Giro Donne, but was forced to withdraw from the Tour de France Femmes ahead of the final stage. 

Jonathan Milan joins Lidl-Trek from Bahrain-Victorious

Fresh from winning the points jersey at the Giro d'Italia this year, Jonathan Milan is heading to Lidl-Trek from Bahrain-Victorious. The 22-year-old won one stage and finished second on four at the Italian Grand Tour too, showing his promise as a sprinter.

He's not just a fast finisher, with the Italian part of his nation's Olympic-winning team pursuit squad too. He won bronze in the individual pursuit this week.

Nils Politt and Pavel Sivakov join UAE Team Emirates

Two announcements in two days from UAE Team Emirates as it continues its journey from the Tadej Pogačar vehicle to a well-rounded squad. The first was Pavel Sivakov joining, the Frenchman following in Adam Yates' wheel tracks in moving from Ineos Grenadiers to the Middle Eastern team, and he was joined by Nils Politt the next day, the German coming across from Bora-Hansgrohe.

Sivakov has been with Ineos for six years, during which time he won the Tour of Poland and the Tour of the Alps in a breakthrough 2019, and also won the Vuelta a Burgos last year. He was often deployed as a second-string GC rider, with top tens at the Etoile de Bessèges, Ruta del Sol, Paris-Nice, the Tour of the Alps, and the Tour of Austria this year. Sivakov will bolster UAE's options at stage races.

Meanwhile, Politt comes to UAE after spending three seasons with Bora-Hansgrohe, during which time he won a stage of the Tour de France and the Deutschland Tour overall. The rouleur-cum-breakaway artist is currently German national time trial champion, and will help UAE at the Classics as well as being a useful domestique at Grand Tours. He finished second at Paris-Roubaix behind Philippe Gilbert in 2019.

Mauro Schmid to Jayco-AlUla

Promising Swiss climber Mauro Schmid is moving down under with Jayco AlUla after two years with Soudal Quick-Step. The 23-year-old burst onto the cycling scene with his Giro d'Italia stage win in 2019, when he was riding with Qhubeka ASSOS, before he moved to Quick-Step. He won the Baloise Belgium Tour last year and Coppi e Bartali this year, and came close to stage wins at Itzulia Basque Country in April.

He will take on a GC leadership role at Jayco, alongside Eddie Dunbar and Simon Yates.

Matteo Trentin, Alberto Dainese and Michael Storer all join Tudor Pro Cycling

Swiss ProTeam Tudor Pro Cycling has signed a whole tranche of top level pros for its battle for WorldTour status. Matteo Trentin, Alberto Dainese, Michael Storer, Marius Mayrhofer, Florian Stork, Alexander Krieger and Hannes Wilksch will all join the squad in 2024.

Trentin, who was with UAE Team Emirates for three years, is the standout name, the former European champion a winner of stages at all three Grand Tours, and comes with a wealth of experience after 13 years as a professional. He will deliver UCI points. 

Mayrhofer, Dainese and Stork all come across from dsm-firmenich, all with promise. Dainese has won a stage of the Giro in the last two seasons, while Mayrhofer won the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in January.

Krieger moves across from Alpecin-Deceuninck, likely to act as a leadout man, while Wilksch joins from Tudor's development squad.

Magnus Cort and Andreas Leknessund join Uno-X

Another ProTeam making waves is Uno-X, with the Norwegian squad continuing with its policy of signing some of the best Danish and Norwegian riders in the world.

Magnus Cort, the owner of the best moustache in pro cycling, comes across from EF Education-EasyPost after four years with the American team. In that time, he won stages of the Vuelta a España, Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, and represents a new level for Uno-X.

For Andreas Leknessund, signing for Uno-X represents a comeback, with the Norwegian coming through the team's development programme before he moved to dsm-firmenich. He finished eighth at this year's Giro after spending time in the pink jersey, and gives the squad a new GC dimension.

Arnaud Démare and Miles Scotson to Arkéa Samsic

After being left out of Groupama-FDJ's Tour de France squad, Arnaud Démare has headed to Arkéa Samsic, and will bring leadout man Miles Scotson with him. Démare has actually done the rare move of switching straight across to his new French team, and will race for them as soon as this month.

Scotson will join in 2024. Démare has spent his whole career up to this point with FDJ, so the transfer represents a big break. He has won two stages of the Tour de France, as well as eight of the Giro d'Italia - the record for a French rider.
