Bora-hansgrohe, Boels-Dolmans and Movistar have announced extensions and new signings for the upcoming season.

The German team confirmed the contract extension of Matteo Fabbro for another year. "Matteo has developed well this year and deserves this chance," said Dan Lorang, Head of Innovation. "He has become a strong pillar of support in the mountains, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him."

The formation also announced the signing of young top talen Giovanni Aleotti with a three-year contract. "Giovanni is certainly a very talented rider, who through his third place in the Tour de l'Avenir and fourth in the Baby Giro, showed me that he can become a very good stage racer," added Lorang. "Our testing has also confirmed this. In addition, he is also quite an animated rider, so there is definitely some potential to develop. We'll see in which direction this will take us."

Boels-Dolmans, team that will become SD Worx in 2020, has also announced the signing of Demi Vollering for the next two years. The rider has already finished in the top-ten of races like the Amster Gold Race, the Fleche Wallon and Liege-Bastogne-Liege. "Over the next few years, we think Demi can grow into a rider who could follow in the footsteps of Anna van der Breggen", said team manager Danny Stam. "In the Classics, she has already proven her class, but she also has the potential to compete with the best in stage races."

After announcing the signing of Annemiek van Vleuten, Movistar has now confirmed the contract extensions of two riders that have been part of the original project: Alba Teruel and Aude Biannic. Teruel has shown herself as a team player with a goog finishing speed while Biannic -double French national road champion- is a versatile rider that can be reliable in all kinds of terrains and situations.
