The management at Qhubeka-NextHash have told riders and staff that the team’s unsuccessful search for a WorldTour sponsor for 2022 has ended. 

The team had already been denied a WorldTour licence by the UCI in early December but team boss Doug Ryder had attempted to keep negotiation channels open in the hope of finding a last-minute deal.

However, an internal communication, sent to all riders and staff, and seen by Cyclingnews on Thursday has confirmed that the search for a title sponsor has ended in failure.
