Away from the Tour de France, it was announced late last night that Michael Matthews has been given the green light to leave Sunweb before the end of his contract which is due to expire in 2021.

Must admit, I was very surprised to see that Matthews who is in fine form right now, was not selected for this year’s Tour. I really thought he could do well on this course and could have, perhaps, challenged for the green jersey. Anyway, he’s off to a new team soon.

In a statement from Sunweb, Matthews said: “The team is very ambitious and increasingly want to work with a broader collective of riders deeper in the finales of classics and sprint races. Those tactics do not ideally fit with my ambitions and specific strengths to sprint for the wins. For that reason, I decided to ask permission to investigate opportunities to look for a different team and I appreciate that Team Sunweb was open for this. 

“I always have been very happy with the team’s professional environment and the wealth of knowledge that they have. I hope that I can find a similar environment in my next team. Through the years we have achieved amazing things together which I am very proud of, these memories will stay in my mind forever and I am very thankful to the team for that.” 

Meanwhile, Tiesj Benoot has extended with the team and will remain at Sunweb until the end of 2022.
