Eichler, 28, turned pro with Team ComNet-Senges in 2003, and rode one year with Unibet.com before joining Milram in 2008. The Classics specialist won several races in 2006, and in 2010 won the Batavus ProRace/Ronde von Friesland.
"Markus will be our captain at the one-day races, and with his eight years of pro experience will surely be a big support for our young team,” said NSP sport director Lars Wackernagel.
"The role of serving as an extension of the team management in the race is especially attractive to me,” Eichler said. “I want to NSP help to form a powerful team.”
