The future of Soudal-QuickStep remains uncertain as their potential take over by Jumbo-Visma continues to dominate the headlines and details of a deal apparently near completion.  

Remco Evenepoel's future has to be confirmed, with the world time trial champion and future Tour de France contender linked to the new team but with a move to Ineos Grenadiers also a possibility. Clarity may only come after October 19, when 2024 team registration is confirmed by the UCI and rider contracts at Soudal-QuickStep may become void as part of the take over process.
