Italian team Liquigas is continuing its hiring of new riders for next season, on top of the coming of Ivan Basso and Sylvester Szmyd. Fabio Sabatini (Milram) has been added to the roster to support Daniele Bennati in the sprints, climber Olivier Zaugg (Gerolsteiner) will be of importance in stage races and time trialist Brian Vandborg from Danish Continental team GLS has been given a one-year contract.

Liquigas will also take on young promises from its Espoir Team 2000 Marchiol-Liquigas. 21 year-olds Jacopo Guarnieri, currently racing the Tour of Missouri, and Daniele Oss signed two-year contracts with the ProTour team to turn professional in 2009.
