With the BikeExchange and Premier Tech deal now dead in the water, two riders who were meant to sign for the Australian squad, Jakob Fuglsang and Hugo Houle, are set to move to Israel Start-Up Nation in 2022.

Both riders are currently on the Astana roster but were set to leave Alexander Vinokourov’s team and move to Team BikeExchange as part of a package that included Premier Tech.
