The EF Pro Cycling squad has taken the unprecedented step to offer one year extensions to all riders who took pay cuts this year and whose contracts were due to expire at the end of 2020, the team confirmed to Cyclingnews on Wednesday.

EF were one of several WorldTour teams to ask riders and staff to take wage cuts to keep the team afloat during the coronavirus pandemic, which forced the UCI to stop all road events from mid-March to late July.
