SHOCKING: BORA - hansgrohe refuse Cian Uijtdebroeks' signing with Jumbo-Visma and claim he remains under contract

This Saturday has seen shocking news of Cian Uijtdebroeks' sudden signing with Jumbo-Visma but the story has developed in a shocking direction. BORA - hansgrohe has put out a statement stating the Belgian rider continues with the team.

The cycling world is rumbling with the developing situation. Uijtdebroeks is one of the most promising talents in pro cycling and the winner of the 2022 Tour de l'Avenir. Throughout the 2023 season he criticized the team's lack of support in the time-trials and also the actions of teammate Aleksandr Vlasov during the Vuelta a Espana, with the Russian competing for his spot. Relations looked to not be too good, but Uijtdebroeks continued to have a contract until the end of 2024.

The entrance of Primoz Roglic from Jumbo-Visma into the German team accentuated the tension, as Uijtdebroeks was to have even less freedom. Although his departure was imminent, it came as a shock this afternoon that Jumbo-Visma officially announced the signing of the 20-year old. "When the opportunity arose to sign Cian as of December 1st, we didn't hesitate," team DS Merijn Zeeman said in a press release.

But the story did not end there. In fact it seems as if it is only building towards what can be one of the most explosive news of the entire year. BORA - hansgrohe have now put out a statement regarding the news and state that he will continue to be a rider for the German team:

"Cian is and will remain a member of BORA - hansgrohe, also in the coming 2024 season. He is contractually bound with us until 31 December 2024." The story continues to develop, and more is expected in the coming days.
