For the next two years, former World Cyclo-Cross Champion Richard Groenendaal will ride for the AA Cycling team. The Dutch cyclo-crosser announced last week that he is leaving the Rabobank squad for the 2007-2008 'cross season.
Groenendaal was ranked sixth in the Superprestige at the end of 2007. He turned professional in 1994 and has ridden with the Rabobank squad since its inception in 1996. In January this year he hinted that a new sponsor was on the cards after receiving a new offer from Rabobank that was considerably below his expectations.
