Team Ineos have emerged as the front runners to sign free agent Rohan Dennis for next season, but CCC Team have not entirely given up hope of rekindling their relationship with the Australian world time trial champion. Dennis rode for the team under the BMC Racing banner between 2014 and 2018.

Dennis saw his two-year contract at Bahrain-Merida terminated on September 13 after walking out of the Tour de France in July over disagreements with the team management. He was not selected to race for the squad in the following months but retained his time trial world title in national colours last month.
