Former Relax GAM rider Dani Moreno has signed a contract to ride for ProTour team Caisse d'Epargne this season. The 26 year-old has been looking for a team since his former team Relax GAM announced its closure.
Moreno has initially looked likely to sign with Agritubel, but the deal fell through in the late stages of negotiation. Moreno's signing with Eusebio Unzué's squad will see him ride out 2008 with the Spanish outfit.
The Spaniard from Madrid, whose speciality is climbing, has been a professional since 2004 and already has seven victories in his palmarès. Those wins include the overall 2007 Escalada a Montjuic title, where he also won two stages. Moreno also finished 12th in last year's Vuelta a España.
