Women’s Cycling Transfers 2019/2020

After the recent Tour of Guangxi, the women’s peloton is now relaxing after a long 2019 season. There are plenty of women’s cycling transfers already confirmed too. I’ve collected all of the women’s cycling transfers that I’ve found confirmed so far into one list. See if your favourite rider is included!

Some teams won’t be back for 2020. Danish team Virtu will be folding completely. BTC Ljubljana and Ale – Cipollini will merge together to become Ale – BTC Ljubljana. Hagens Berman Supermint will also close, meaning one less American team.

A few new teams will replace them. Chevalmeire rise up to Women’s WorldTour level. The creation of Casa Dorada gives Spain another women’s cycling team and Ciclotel will be a new Belgian team. Instafund La Prima will fill the gap left in North America by the closure of Hagens Berman Supermint. UK domestic team Brother – Tifosi will be making the jump up a level and become CAMS – Tifosi.

If I’ve missed any women’s cycling transfers, let me know using the contact link at the bottom of the page.

I’ll keep this page updated regularly so check back for the latest transfers.
