Cycling's transfer window has been open since August 1, but still deals are being done. The delayed nature of the 2020 season has seen something of a shift in the market, with Grand Tours running in October and November, giving out-of-contract riders the chance to earn new contracts even as the next season draws closer.

Several transfers were announced on Friday, including that of the Russian GC rider Ilnur Zakarin, who leaves CCC Team after one season as the Polish squad shuts down at the end of 2020.
