The fabulously named Steele Von Hoff has been given a pro contract at Garmin-Sharp.

Joost Posthuma is retiring. He's failed to find a team for next year.

Duggan to Saxo. Had signed for Spidertech but they are not continuing next year (aim to lay off everyone then spend the year trying to secure sponsorship for WorldTour...)

OPQS is becoming like HTC. Winners from everywhere... except GC and Ardennes.

Boonen, Cav, Chava, Terpstra, Martin, now Meersman. I could see Fenn and Stybar winning some decent races too.

you know, I think they could do quite well. The 2013 route for the Tour Med has just been announced, and I might have them FTW

Not a transfer but comments from Gilbert about BMC contract. Funny that a team would make a rider use different pedals and saddles then they wanted even if it would make them win more. Of course maybe Gilbert is saying this now as an excuse and he never mentioned it during the year.

To be fair to Gilbert there were rumours that he was unhappy with equipment and missing his Canyon. I seem to recall his father talking about it in the early part of the season.

Sky ditched the Prologo saddles pdq too - Rodrego will probably be able to confirm/not, but I did hear that a no of riders didn't really like them...
