    With JV announcing the end of sponsorship in2024 (or sooner) might be some choice names looking for a team.

    I thought it was just Jumbo not renewing their deal that finished at the end of 2024. Hadn’t heard anything about Visma doing the same.

    prob just Jumbo. But may need some big money to keep that team.

    If that team can't get a sponsor then pro cycling is in big trouble

    Hopefully whoever it is brings back the orange kits.

    I do wonder if the reason JV have put so many classics riders in the squad is to keep Kuss high on GC so he can take on the Roglic role this time round.

    i think JV will miss not having Roglic as a foil vs Pog.

    Definitely. Even with Roglic injured, they kept Pogacar guessing and chasing. That's not happening with Kruijswijk or Kuss

    The sector Visma operate in is hardly awash with funds, as opposed to a few years ago.

    I dont doubt they will find a decent sponsor or two though

    And Lampre could come back to sponsor UAE Emirates.

    That's fairly old news though. The CEO left last Autumn because of it. Jumbo pulling out has been on the cards for months.

    I'm not sure, but surely Vos would be first call?

    Kelderman's on the PCS page as the replacement - no idea whether that's confirmed or not, he was originally supposed to go to the Giro but wasn't ready.

    Can’t see Roglic going to the Tour, they’ll want him at the Vuelta as they could win all 3 Grand Tours this year.
