Rabobank has signed Australian sprinter Graeme Brown for next season. The 26-year-old dual Olympic gold medallist has signed for one year, coming from Italian squad Ceramica Panaria. Brown has been riding for the Italian squad for four years, and in 2005 posted five stage wins - all coming at the Tour de Langkawi.
Team manager Theo the Rooij said, "We think Graeme Brown is a sprinter that hasn't found his best yet. We'll arrange for Graeme to start slowly within the team, and gradually build up as a rider for the future through a good programme."
