Most importantly, there was a dispute in the team with regard to his professional status. He was unclear on when his status will turn which made him leave the team and join Axeon Hagens Berman. 

Starting in Ineos Grenadiers, he does not know yet what sort of rider he will be as he is a jack of all trades.
