Colombian national technical director Gianni Savio (also the manager of the Selle Italia team), will leave his post after five years in the job to take up a similar role with the Venezuelans. During the recent junior Pan-Am championships, Savio worked out a three year deal with the president of the Venezuelan cycling federation, Artemio Leonett, and will take the national team from the World's in Salzburg this year through to the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008.

Leonett also announced that he has signed a large Venezuelan business to sponsor the national team from next year.
