Farfetch Pro Cycling! 2019


2019 marks the end of an era, with the team formerly known as Ayubowan! changing name after the withdrawal of the Sri Lankan consortium that had provided backing from 2015 onwards. In their place British online fashion retailer Farfetch have come on board to sponsor the team, with backing also coming from POC, Rapha, and long term sponsors LOOK.

The change of sponsor also means an end to the national focus - gone is the requirement for 50% of the roster to be Sri Lankan - and the new sponsors have declined to stipulate where the riders on the team come from. While the focus on developing young talent will remain, the aim is simply to build the best team possible.

Overall our renewals didn't go as well as we would have liked, with attempted paycuts for a number of riders rejected outright - and a number of young riders deciding now was the time for them to demand a payrise. We also bid goodbye to Nihal Silva, Ashen Tharuka and Kashyapa Siriwardena who unfortunately were not part of our future plans.

With all said and done, we have 20 riders and €925,000 of remaining cap space heading into the transfer season. However, none of the riders on the team can be considered 100% secure moving forward (though some may be around 99% secure, it must be said...) so look out for a transfer availability post later!
 
jph27
Transfer Availability


The transfer availability of our riders can be split into 4 bands of likeliness, set out below - 75%+ chance of leaving, 50%-75% chance of leaving, 50%-75% chance of staying, and 75+ chance of staying. Yes, it's needlessly complex. But I just like numbers.

75%+ Chance of Leaving

Sachin Dulanjana
Gihan Pushpakumara
Tushantha Rajapakshage
Amith Udaya Kumara
Madushanka Perera

No real surprises here. These are the riders who are on the roster bubble, and who we are incredibly confident of being able to replace this transfer period.

50%-75% Chance of Leaving

Suranga Ranaweera
Samuel Ssabagwanya
Darshana Prasad

The second tier of riders are those who stand a good choice of being kept, but are at risk of sold if opportunities open up during transfers that make their roles redundant.

50%-75% Chance of Staying

Hugh Carthy
Yonathan Monsalve
Alberto Bettiol
Anthony Turgis
Josh Atkins
Sameera Chatarunga
Sebastian Lander

Now we're into those who are more likely to stay than leave. We don't plan to sell any of them unless needed to fund other moves, but there are definitely circumstances in which they could depart - though Monsalve and Turgis are probably safer than the others.

75%+ Chance of Staying

Adam Yates
Jay McCarthy
Stefan De Bod
Julius van den Berg
Salem Kemboi

Unless some stroke of amazing fortune falls upon us, it's pretty unlikely these riders will leave - we see them as our best asset for the future on each terrain respectively, and unless something seismic happens they'll be with us for a long time.

Looks like the Sri Lankan purge has begun. Frown

Great to see you were able to see reach PT with a Sri Lankan focused team. A bit sad we won't see it have a go in PT, but the ambition of the team is clear as day.

Good luck Smile

First New Signings


The start of the transfer season hasn't always been kind to the team, but this year things started relatively well. Among the first free agent signings to be confirmed this morning were 4 new riders for Farfetch Pro Cycling.

Included in this haul is Mattia Cattaneo, the new GT leader for the team, and three young talents with exciting futures ahead of them - Siim Kiskonen, Steff Cras and Edoardo Affini. The three youngsters all joined on the minimum wage and will now be loaned out to develop, while Cattaneo is on 780k, which is a bargain compared to some prices in free agency in recent years.

Two More Signings!


As transfers have progressed, a number of riders have bid farewell to the team. Tushantha Rajapakshage, Amith Udaya Kumara, Madushanka Perera and Suranga Ranaweera have all already left or are in the process of doing so - we thank them for their service and wish them well, knowing they will be fine ambassadors for Sri Lankan cycling. Addditionally, new signing Edoardo Affini has gone out on loan to Duolingo for the season.

In their place we are able to report two new signings, with more in the pipeline. Kyeng Ho Min is a talented Korean climber who has come in to replace Ranaweera for a fee of 500k from DK Zalgiris, while Jodok Salzmann has been signed as Kumara's replacement for a wage of 80k from free agency.

It's the notation I use for riders I've maxed out in my transfers DB, was just too lazy to edit it Pfft

This isn’t looking too shabby. Decent quality in most aspects, especially added with Cattaneo also! I think you have a very good shot at staying clear of the relegation battle this time!

And another three!


With Sachin Dulanjana, Gihan Pushpakumara and Sameera Chatarunga departing the team, plus new signings Siim Kiskonen and Steff Cras being loaned out to Berg Cycles to continue their development, we needed to make some new signings. And so three more riders have joined the team for the upcoming season.

The biggest name of this trio is Tosh Van der Sande, signed for a fee of 750k from Xero. He comes in to complete our trio of powerhouse sprinters, each with their own unique niche - Van der Sande can get over the hills, Lander over the cobbles, and Kemboi is our man for the prologues. Another transfer in is that of Milan Menten, an exciting cobbler-puncheur hybrid signed for 300k from Netia - alongside Van den Berg and Salzmann he's part of a bright future for our cobbled squad. And finally, Marco Tizza has joined on a wage of 50k from free agency. Like Samuel Ssabagwanya, what he lacks in pure ability as a puncheur he more than makes up for with his capacities for long, intense efforts, and we're excited to see him develop.

Final squad revealed!


In the final days of transfers, a number of riders were signed to complete the squad. The biggest signing was that of Eugert Zhupa for a fee of 350k from SPAR, who will be our cobbled leader for the season ahead. He was also joined by Mathias Krigbaum, a young Danish TTer and engine for the flat brought in on loan from Carlsberg to develop, and Michael Gogl, a solid puncheur with some room to improve, on a 50k wage from free agency.

Additionally, we added three stagiares - the first in the team's 7 year history - Zisis Soulious on a 15k wage, and Alexey Voloshin and Hugo Nunes, both on 10k wages. Voloshin and Nunes will develop nicely into a puncheur and stage racer respectively, while Soulious' future development is unclear. Like Kiskonen we originally had him down as a sprinter, however we believe he could also be an interesting option trained as a puncheur should we decide to keep him for the long term.

With all that said and done, we are now able to reveal our team for the upcoming season. We expect it to be a long, hard battle to avoid relegation but believe that if our leaders perform to their abilities we should have a decent chance of staying up. Additionally, this is when we take the opportunity to present our talents when they're reached their full potential - we have a scary crop, even if some of them (e.g. Gogl) were signed only as last minute fillers, and may not be with us long term (and as already mentioned, plans may change for others)

Goals Revealed!


Volta a PortugalWin
Tour de FranceTop 5
Vuelta a EspanaTop 10
Giro d'ItaliaTop 10
PT Team StandingsTop 10


Our goals this season are based around the main strength of the team - stage races. In Yonathan Monsalve and Adam Yates we already have two riders who have proven they can finish in the top 10 of Grand Tours, and now in Mattia Cattaneo we have a third. Yates has also excelled in the Volta a Portugal in recent years, hence it being our win goal - while we've set the ambitious target of a top 10 in the PT Team Standings purely as the alternative was "avoid relegation", which is truly a minimum aim.

We are delighted to reveal our jersey for the upcoming season - combining the classic Rapha look with a nod to the history of the team by incorporating the La Vie Claire-esque Mondrian design. Once again it is a masterpiece by the_hoyle, and we hope our performances will be as good as it looks!
