This season’s signings of Mark Cavendish and Mikel Landa will lead the team in sprints and GC respectively. Another notable signing for the year was Wout Poels.
With McLaren stepping up as title sponsor for 2020, Rod Ellingworth has been selected as team manager, with the former British Cycling coach joining after a long stint with Team Sky.
