Benoît Joachim will ride for Differdange – Apiflo Vacances next year, a Continental team in his native Luxembourg. He will sign a one-year contract, the team announced Sunday.

Joachim, 32, rode for Discovery Channel from 1996 to 2006 and for Team Astana the last two years.

After the one-year contract is up, "who knows, maybe Ben will continue to help us after that," said Team Manager Gabriel Gatti. "The most important thing right now is that he is a good captain and that he will lead our young riders well." (SW)
