Team Milram has signed neo-pro Sebastian Schwager to a two-year contract, the team announced on Wednesday. The 22-year-old was German U-23 champion in 2005 and finished third this year.
Schwager said that he was happy to have a contract so soon. "That gives me a feeling of security for the upcoming races. Of course I'm very excited about what next year will be like. I'm especially happy to able to ride in the same team as Alessandro Petacchi and Erik Zabel. I can surely learn a lot from the two of them."
