The former Saunier Duval team, now known as Scott-American Beef following the Tour de France, as signed on three stagiaires for the remainder of the season, the team announced Friday.

The team's more seasoned riders will line up for the next round of the UCI ProTour, the Clásica San Sebastián, on Saturday. Juan Jose Cobo, José Ángel Gómez Marchante, David de la Fuente, Josep Jufre, Jesús del Nero, Iker Camaño, Rubén Lobato and Alberto Fernández de la Puebla will represent the team.

They will also tackle the Subida a Urkiola, a UCI 1.1 race, where Gomez Marchante will defend his title with the same line-up.

Three young riders will join the team for the rest of the season: Ángel Madrazo, Rafael Valls (members of the affiliated amateur team), as well as the Swiss rider, Marcel Wyss (member of the continental team Atlas-Romer's). Ángel Madrazo, 19, is only in his second year as an amateur but racked up five victories this year. Rafa Valls, 21, won a stage of the Spanish U23 Nations Cup as well as the Coupe de l'Avenir.

Marcel Wyss, 22, won the Swiss 23 time trial championship.

Madrazo will start with the team at the Tour of Burgos, and Wyss and Vall at the Tour of Portugal.
