UPDATED: All the comings and goings from the pro peloton

With the Tour de France over and the countdown to the World Championships beginning in earnest, teams are starting to shore up their rosters for next season. The hottest property on the market, Alberto Contador, has already confirmed his move to Saxo Bank-SunGard. Meanwhile, the arrival of the new Luxembourg team should compensate for the departure of some big-name sponsors and ensure significant movement in the transfer market.

From here until the end of the season there will be a flurry of transfer activity, so don’t get left behind and bookmark this page. Check back regularly to get up-to-the-minute news from Cyclingnews about who's going where in this transfer period.
