Sacha Modolo (EF Education First) is relieved to have found a cure for his health problems but knows finding a team for 2020 will be much harder. He finished second in a sprint at the La Route d'Occitanie and has since taken other placings at the Adriatica Ionica race and the Tour de Pologne but is running out of races to show what he can do.

Several Professional Continental teams will fold at the end of 2019 and WorldTour teams are signing younger riders to save on salary costs and to prepare for the future. Modolo is 32 years old but is convinced he can still be a successful sprinter.
