Steven Kleynen (Chocolade Jacques) will move to Landbouwkrediet-Colnago for 2006, the team has confirmed. Kleynen has signed a one year deal thanks to the support of his training partner Nico Sijmens. He has ridden professionally for Domo-Fram Frites, Vlaanderen and Chocolade Jacques.
25 year-old Sebastian Lang and 27 year-old Ronny Scholz have extended their contracts with Gerolsteiner until the end of 2008. The management wants these riders on board in order to strengthen the team's core. Both have ridden the Tour de France in 2004 and 2005 and supported Levi Leipheimer in his Deutschland Tour victory last month.
