As 2017 spreads across the globe, riders, teams and races all took to social media to say good-bye to 2016 and welcome in the New Year.
The changing season also provided the opportunity for riders to thank their previous teams on the last day of their contracts, while teams took the opportunity to welcome new riders aboard and look toward new goals in the year ahead. We've compiled a glimpse of the New Year's greetings below.
Happy New Year from the crew at Cyclingnews!
