The Cervélo TestTeam, future home of Carlos Sastre and Thor Hushovd, announced the signing of Britain's Daniel Lloyd and Jeremy Hunt, and Ireland's Phillip Deignan today. Scott Sunderland and Jean-Paul van Poppel will direct the new Swiss-based team on the road.
Daniel Lloyd currently races for An Post-Donnelly-Thornton-Kelly Team. He placed 15th in the recent Tour of Ireland and won the Vuelta Ciclista Internacional a Extremadura in April. Hunt is currently with Crédit Agricole, which is closing its operations at the end of this season. The two-time British Champion will apply his sprint skills in the newly formed team.
Deignan, currently with AG2R La Mondiale, finished 25th in the recent Deutschland-Tour and 25th in the Vattenfall Cyclassics, one day later.
