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

August 1 is 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. The months following, however, are where most of the big announcements are made.

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.

While the announcements can now be made, many deals will have been done in the weeks and months running up to August, hence the myriad of rumours that are 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

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.

"The aim will be to win races and I hope to discover the biggest events on the calendar," Walls said. "I'm going to focus on the road, I'll try to continue riding a bit on the track because it helps me to perform well, but the goal is to win on the road. There's still a long way to go, but I'm confident."

Marc Madiot, the team's manager, said that Walls and Cyril Barthe, who is also joining Groupama, were going to "strengthen the sprint unit around Paul Penhoët in particular".

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.

"I think I'm a punchy climber," Nerurkar said in a statement released by EF Education-EasyPost. "At the moment, that is the way that I am going. I climb quite well and normally, at the end of hard days, I will still have a good sprint to win from a reduced group.

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.

“Jack is a gutsy and smart rider,” said EF team manager Jonathan Vaughers. “While young, he’s already quite savvy. Jack has wisdom beyond his years. He’ll be a valuable member of our Classics team.”

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.

"I'm really excited for my future with Israel-Premier Tech," Bennett said in a team-issued press release. "I'm already close with a lot of people in the team and it's clear that there is a great culture and desire to grow, and I want to be a big part of that."

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.

Speaking after his new team was confirmed, Verona said: “After five very nice years in Movistar Team I had the feeling that it was the right moment to look around to find a team where I could keep growing as cyclist.

“I think I have so many things to learn from my future team members and also I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with the younger ones, working as hard as I can for our team leaders, which is what I enjoy most, but also taking my own opportunities when possible for stage wins. I think the way Lidl-Trek races can help me a lot to develop this ‘hidden’ part of my strengths.”

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.

"I’m excited about the opportunities at Canyon-SRAM Racing. I will get to race with a strong squad and have the freedom to race in any discipline I want to as well," Bäckstedt said in a team press release.

"The team has made a lot of developments in the last year, and you can see that on and off the bike. I really like this; it helped my decision as I like to have a good structure around me.

“I believe I will bring to Canyon-SRAM Racing some more good tunes to the pre-race playlist, my love for the sport and just the fact I’m happy to be at a bike race with my teammates.”

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.

"Racing as a professional cyclist, let alone for one of the biggest WorldTour teams, is really a 'pinch me' moment for me," Steels said. "I've always admired the Movistar Team from afar, their professional approach and their attacking style. To be in this position is just a dream.

"I do hope I've still got quite a lot to offer. I feel like my cycling journey has only, really just begun, and I'm sure that, surrounded by experienced staff and riders, I can continue to develop all areas of myself as an athlete and racer."

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. 

"It was my big dream to make this huge step into the WorldTour and now this dream comes true," he said. "I spent two years with my present team, and I can say I had a good time here, so I am grateful for this. But now I feel like it is time to move on ahead. I am really motivated to come to Astana and to show my best pursuing some nice results both for me personal and for the team."

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".

"I’d been talking to Axel for a while and I’ve always admired the team, knowing the history of the team, and how many guys have gone to the next level from the team. I knew straight away that it was the right place for me to develop and try to get to the World Tour.

"Also the opportunity to work with Axel who grew up in a very similar situation to me with our dads doing great things in the sport, I can’t think of anyone better to get advice and guidance from. I can’t wait to get started,” he said.

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.

Of his move to Jumbo-Visma, Tulett says: "In my eyes, this is the top team in our sport. So I am very motivated to be a part of it. I want to develop as a stage race rider."

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.

"Being part of a team that rides for victory in all races is what I am most excited about", Jorgensen said of the move. "Whether for myself or a team-mate: fighting for the win is what motivates me."

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.

"I have had some beautiful moments and nice memories but I’m only turning 27 at the end of the month so I still think I have more good years in the legs, and I’m really motivated to be fast and to win together," Jakobsen said in the dsm press release.

"In top sport you always aim for the highest and there are always areas for improvement, and I think that is something which I know I can do here. I think every athlete needs a motivating, step-by-step process to get to the highest level. I think this is an environment where that is facilitated in the most optimal way with a lot of experts and with their help, I look forward to finding that edge again.”

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.

“I’m super excited! It will be a big change for me to transition from a French team to a foreign one,” Copponi said. “With the language, new teammates, staff, and all the new habits, I’ll be out of my comfort zone, and that’s also what I’m looking for.”

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.

"My aim is to become one of the top sprinters in the world and also be able to separate myself from other pure sprinters on hilly and mountainous races and stages," Vernon said. "I am confident I can achieve this with the support of the IPT 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.

“We have known Luke for some time now and we are delighted that he decided to turn pro with us," Quick-Step boss Patrick Lefevere said. "He’s one of the most talented riders coming from the U23 ranks, he has a lot of potential, and a big love for the Classics, so he’s in the right place to discover the Belgian one-day races and develop. We look forward to the next two years."

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.

"Jonathan is a rider that we have followed for a long time, since way before this year’s Giro," Luca Guercilena, Trek's general manager, said. "His accomplishments at the Giro are a testament to his exceptional talent and gave a satisfying confirmation of his abilities. 

"We believe he is poised for even greater achievements, and with Lidl-Trek's unwavering support, he has the potential to become one of the world's best cyclists. His dedication and values align perfectly with our team's ethos, and we're excited to witness his journey."

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.

“I’m really excited to join UAE Team Emirates next year. It’s going to open up a new chapter in my career after the past six years at Ineos,” the 26-year-old said. “For sure it’s going to be a big change for me but I’m really looking forward to joining the UAE project. I’ve been seeing how the team has been developing over the years and I’m happy to become part of the that, both to try and win races and to help to win 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.
