Daryl Impey has offers on the table from both Mitchelton-Scott and Israel Cycling Start-Up Nation, with both teams looking to secure his services for 2021 and beyond.

The South African is out of contract at the end of the season and is in line for the Tour de France later this year as he continues to captain Mitchelton-Scott on the road. However with Chris Froome leaving Team Ineos at the end of the current campaign and signing a five-year deal at Israel Start-Up Nation the team are looking for experienced riders to help in their quest to support Froome’s challenge for a fifth Tour de France title in 2021.
