Andy Cappelle and Kevyn Ista have joined Accent.jobs-Verandas Willems for the 2012 season. The two Belgian riders give the Dutch Professional Continental team a roster of 15 riders for the coming year.
Cappelle, 32, rode for the team in 2009. “After being gone a year, we are very pleased to welcome Andy back into our team,” said team manager Jean-Francois Bourlart. The Belgian was with Quick Step in 2011, but broke a collarbone in the Ronde van West-Vlaanderen and then crashed again in the Dauphine, suffering a concussion, several broken ribs and another broken collarbone.
"Andy is a real professional and is keen on a successful new season,” Bourlart said.
Ista, 27, comes over from Cofidis. In 2009 he was second in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and this year was second in Le Samyn.
