It has been a strange transfer market for strange times. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on wheelings and dealings, with a number of teams facing serious financial difficulties. Transfer activity was effectively put on hold for a while, and even now, as we enter a new year and head towards a delayed 2021 season, there's still business to be done. 

The NTT Pro Cycling team have been saved and will race as Qhubeka Assos in 2021, while the Belgian Wanty team have taken the WorldTour licence of the folding CCC Team and will race at the top level as Intermarché-Wanty Gobert. 

The biggest move of the transfer season is that of Chris Froome who heads from Team Ineos to Israel Start-Up Nation, who have been relatively unscathed by the pandemic. Other big moves include Romain Bardet from AG2R to Team DSM (formerly known as Sunweb), Michael Matthews' return to Bike Exchange (formerly Mitchelton-Scott), and Mark Cavendish from Bahrain to Deceuninck-QuickStep)

Below is a full index of all the comings and goings from the pro peloton. We will keep this page constantly updated with each new signing and contract extension, so make sure to bookmark it for future reference.
