Marcel Sieberg will be leaving Team Milram and joining the T-Mobile Team, he has announced. "I have closed a two-year contract with them," he told the Ruhr Nachrichten.
The tall German was evidently more successful than his team-mate Erik Zabel in being released from the last year of his contract with Milram. Zabel had said that he expected to be released from the contract, but last week Milram announced that he would ride for them again in 2008.
Milram did not comment on Sieberg's transfer, saying it would not comment before presenting its 2008 team at the end of this week or the beginning of next week. T-Mobile could not be reached for a comment. T-Mobile announced its 2008 team the end of last month, with three places still to be filled.
Sieberg turned pro in 2005 with the Continental Team Lamonta, and rode for Team Wiesenhof-Akud in 2006 before joining Milram this season.
