Robbie McEwen had a fairly measured response, too.

The Belgian riders all had permission to be out but it was thought of as 'bad taste' since the rest of the country was in lockdown and riders from some other countries weren't allowed out at all.

Rumor is BMC is also moving from NTT to AG2R. I'm sure GVA will be happy about that.

Other silly season equipment sponsor rumors:
Cervelo to Jumbo-Visma (more or less confirmed)
Movistar loses Canyon (almost certain with Canyon backing both Alpecin-Fenix and Arkea-Samsic)
Argon 18 in talks with Mitchelton-Scott
Bianchi in talks with Israel Start-Up Nation

Feels weird seeing these announcements when the season just began. These are for 2021 right, the riders aren't moving immediately?

Yes, those are all for 2021. I think this is the usual time frame for transfers, though.

Man I'm gonna miss the yellow/celeste combo that Jumbo have, all yellow, white and black will be so much less interesting. Wonder who Movistar will move to.

AG2R just got a big money injection (they're going to be co-sponsored by Citroen next year), but I don't think GVA is where I'd have spent it.

Yes, that irritated me too. He's signed for 2021 through 2023.

Also, this just got announced:

Keeping an eye on Pogacar. I think he's been in the mix a lately and he was crushing it at the end of last year.
