The Italian team that has raced as Alé Cipollini since 2014 added Slovenian company BTC as a second title sponsor, with the team name changing to Alé BTC Ljubljana for 2020 and a handful of riders from the former BTC Ljubljana squad coming over. The Women’s WorldTour team that traces their lineage back to 2011 as Mcipollini-Giordana now features just three Italian riders and four Slovenians among the 12-rider 2020 roster.
