Another former T-Mobile rider has found a home for the 2008 season, with sprinter Andre Korff joining former team-mate Olaf Pollack at Team Volksbank. The 34-year old signed a one-year contract, the Austrian Professional Continental team announced Tuesday.
"Korff is an experienced top pro, who can and will take on a lot of responsibility at big races," said Volksbank manager Thomas Kofler. "[Pollack and Korff] know each other and will harmonize together. Korff has often proved that he is fast. But the day's form will decide who the number one on Team Volksbank is. We are flexible."
Volksbank now has 16 riders under contract, the minimum number for a Professional Continental team. "The door is not closed, even if we don't want to push our budget too far," Kofler said. "If another interesting option appears, we will take it."
