Two cross country riders will not be rejoining Team Dolphin for 2008. Sid Taberlay and Frank Beemer have ridden for the team for two years.
Australian Taberlay is reported to be turning his focus to a US-oriented team. Taberlay spent 2007 wearing the 2006 Australian National Championship jersey for Team Dolphin. He also finished 28th in the Offenburg World Cup and made the podium several times at the Tour de France VTT.
20 year-old Frank Beemer of the Netherlands, is the current under 23 Dutch champion. Dolphin management said there was too much "difference in the view between rider and team to get a new agreement."
