German rider Daniel Becke has signed to ride for the new German-Italian Pro tour Milram Team for one year. Becke's contract with Illes Baleares ran through next season, but the team released him. "Milram asked me if I would be interested. Of course it appealed to me to be in a sprinting team with Alessandro Petacchi, Erik Zabel and Mirko Celestino," said Becke, 27.
