Who's in, who's out and who's staying

As the second half of the 2009 season rolls on, teams are already making preparations to confirm their rosters for next year. With a number of riders' contracts expiring and big teams like Team Sky and Team RadioShack set for the peloton the months ahead will be filled with a plethora of staff changes.

As rider transfers in-and-out of teams whip into their traditional frenzy, it can be difficult to keep a track of who's going where.

Bookmark this page and check back regularly as rumours make way for firm agreements and get up-to-the-minute news from Cyclingnews about who's going where in the transfer period.
