The rules administered by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) admit that the maximum number of participants in each team will be made up of up to 30 people and that it is necessary to deliver the list of athletes to the institution by December 1st of this year. After sending, the receipt will be verified and approved.

“Winter is never peaceful. When the season ends for the drivers, then my season begins. The 27th vacancy has been filled since this weekend. I’m going to keep this driver’s name to myself for a while, because I don’t know if he already communicated this to his team this year, the end of his contract with that team”, said Patrick Lefevere.

The names that will be kept on the team are: Remco Evenepoel, Julian Alaphilippe, Kasper Asgreen, Fabio Jakobsen, Andrea Bagioli, Ethan Vernon, Michael Morkov, Florian Sénéchal and Davide Ballerini. Soudal Quick-Step’s most recent signing was Mikel Landa, one of the competitors in the category who has the possibility of being another promise in cycling.

Decisions for next year have not yet taken shape. Previously, a meeting to reflect the calendar had to be postponed when speculation of a merger between Soudal Quick-Step and Jumbo-Visma took hold. However, after the rumors are finalized, the meeting will be held soon.
