On New Year’s Day, Team Jumbo-Visma will officially make the swap to Cervélo bikes, with one exception. Being mid-stream in the wet and wild cyclo-cross season, however, Wout van Aert will take the start at the GP Sven Nys in Baal on January 1 on his current Bianchi and complete his 'cross season with the same machine, according to reports by Wielerflits.

Jumbo-Visma will climb aboard Cervélo bikes in 2021, a change which will be made for both the men’s WorldTour team and the new women's Continental team.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
