The 2014 cycling season is going to come to an end soon. But there are numerous cyclists who have no contract for the 2015 cycling season. Grand Tour winners (stage winners as well as overall winners), one Olympic champion and 2010 Critérium du Dauphiné victor are some of the riders who are still looking for a cycling team for the next year. Here is a list of the riders still without contracts.
Chris Horner signed a last minute contract with the team Lampre-Merida in 2014 even though he had won the Vuelta a Espana in 2013. He has not yet been signed for the 2015 season because the 2014 season was not that good for him and he was expelled from Vuelta a Espana 2014 as well.
Samuel Sanchez’s contract with BMC racing is going to get over in 2014. There are rumors that he is going to sign a contract with Lampre-Merida. But nothing has been confirmed yet.
Jack Bobridge has been associated with three teams- Garmin-Sharp (2009-2011), Orica-GreenEdge (2012) and Blanco Pro Cycling team (2013). He really hopes he can participate in the 2015 WorldTour.
Alessandro Petacchi has been left out by the Omega Pharma-Quick Step team. It seems that he will become a part of the Italian team called Neri Sottoli.
The 2014 cycling season was disappointing for Gert Steegmans who was a part of Omega Pharma. He could sign a contract with Trek or Lotto NL.
Steve Morabito might get linked with the French team called FDJ for the year 2015.
Enrico Gasparotto’s contract with Astana team has not been renewed yet.
Francisco Ventoso had no space in the Movistar’s renewed contracts for 2015.

Coppa Bernocchi is the place where Vincenzo Nibali is preparing for the world championship. It is for the first time that Vincenzo Nibali is going to come to Coppa Bernocchi after his triumph in the Tour de France in July.
He is planning to focus on the World Championship. He wants to perform well for his team and take it forward. It was in the event of charity that he stated it. He has to goals to conquer the Tour and then the World. He surpassed other riders in Tour de France. He did take part in the criteriums as well but were not part of the races which were official. There are other riders also who can win the race. Going by the practicality it is believed that it is going to be impossible for Nibali to come with the same force since he is coming after a break and with much added responsibility.
His trainer of Astana however pointed out that he has not gained much weight it is mere kilo which he has gained. He should be well fit and suited to the event coming up at Ponferrada. When it comes to the race of one day Nibali always proves to be a tough challenge for his rival riders and this time too it is going to be the same according to his trainer. He is someone who causes tensions for others. Otherwise if he just has those one of the bad days he is still useful for the team. After the World Championship, Nibali has not yet disclosed his plans. He could go to the base if his sponsor in Kazakhastan for racing in the Tour Almaty. There is no doubt regarding his credibility but to keep up to the pressure is going to be the challenge.
