It's a strange transfer market for strange times. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on wheelings and dealings so far this year but, with racing getting back into full swing, the market is grinding back into gear, with the transfer window having officially opened on August 1.

The financial impact of the pandemic left a number of teams facing serious difficulties, and that meant transfer activity was effectively put on hold. Business around Classics riders, usually conducted in the spring, was pushed back, and while the Tour de France will remain the key time for negotiations, it's taking place two months later than planned, stretching well into September.

Transfer Mechanics: Froome and COVID-19 shape the market

  Transfer Mechanics: Froome and COVID-19 shape the market The lie of the land ahead of transfer window opening on August 1The transfer market has been dominated by a number of factors, from Chris Froome’s already-announced move to Israel Start-Up Nation, to a raft of U23 prospects being snapped up, and a steady flow of riders opting to stay with their current teams. Of course, the overriding theme has been the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and its effect on every aspect of professional cycling.

As such, it has been a quiet start to the window, with the key move being Chris Froome transferring from Team Ineos to Israel Start-Up Nation, who have been relatively unscathed by the pandemic. The same goes for AG2R, and it's those two teams who have been busiest so far.

7 conclusions from the 2020 Milan-San Remo

  7 conclusions from the 2020 Milan-San Remo The birth of an icon, a non-sprinter's Classic and a decade of disappointmentA number of factors combined to make this a unique edition of the race, including the mayors of a number of coastal towns refusing the race, and thunderstorms in Alessandria forcing massive changes to the course, as well as a date so soon after the restart meaning that preparation was minimal, and hot weather not usually experienced in the race's normal March date.
