Transfers in US and Canadian teams

The racing season may be all but over, but the action continues as riders scramble to sign with a team before the December 8 deadline to submit rosters to the UCI. The lucky ones have already signed contracts, and some teams have already confirmed their rosters, but for the rest, the race is on!

The applications for the US domestic UCI teams must be in to USA Cycling by October 31, 2009, and until then it is not clear which teams will continue. Some new teams have been announced, while the status of some current teams remain shrouded in mystery.

The list below shows confirmed rider transfers with the previous team in parentheses for the incoming lists and new team on the outgoing lists. Riders staying put have no team listed on the incoming, riders without a confirmed team for 2010 have no team in the outgoing lists.

If a rider is without a contract by the UCI deadline, all hope is not lost. While the UCI rules bar transfers of signed riders after the deadline until a small window in June, riders who do not have contracts can be hired at any time.

Bookmark this page and check back often! Cyclingnews will be sure to update the list as transfers and signings are announced.
