It's just a bike component. Let's not lose our shit with other people over it. Hasn't the last 18 months been hard enough?

Never a wiser word spoken.

"Next season, Lotto Soudal will race with the Noah Fast Disc, Helium SLX Disc and the (new) Dean Fast Disc time trial bike. There will, though, be some changes to the equipment in the final assembly. The Ridleys will, from this moment forward, be built with DT Swiss wheels, KMC chains and Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets with CEMA bearings. Other equipment partners such as Selle Italia, Deda, Lizard Skins, Look and Vittoria will remain on board."

Interesting. So I guess Campy are down to two WT teams - AG2R and UAE, unless they have managed to grab another team or two from the competition.

It also means that LTS doesn’t have a complete drive train sponsor next year.

I can only wonder why they are giving up Campy sponsorship to go with Shimano that they will get no sponsorship funds to use or may have to purchase at worst.

I wonder if DT Swiss or KMC are paying enough to compensate for that?

An article on fiets.nl states that "Campagnolo had not much to offer for smaller teams like Lotto-Soudal" and "Campagnolo is more focussing on the international market (UAE)".

First pro on Dura Ace 9200 it seems
In the lastets podcast of Laurens Ten Dam (live slow ride fast) they told there were only 37 riders atthe start as team were not supplied with enought gravel bikes (frames - groups) from their suppliers as there was just nothing available.

Ah, yes, I did forget them. Cofidis is... easy to overlook.
