26-year old Jurgen Van Goolen has just signed a two-year contract with Team CSC. The all-round Belgian rider has finished his 2007 season on a good note - most recently with a second place in the mountain competition in Vuelta a España.
”I'm really looking forward to working with Team CSC because I've heard so many good things about it,” said Van Goolen. "Looking from the outside there seems to be a really good team spirit and the riders get the best possible opportunities to make results. This year I've finally managed to get through without any injuries and I expect to at least keep up the level, which I've managed to reach during this season."
”In Van Goolen, we are getting a young and very interesting new addition to our team," said Bjarne Riis. "I've been following him for some time now and I'm sure he'll be able to get a lot more out of his considerable talent. He's an all-round rider, who'll strengthen the team in different types of races and I think we'll see his potential unfold in the near future.”
