Team Skil-Shimano has signed Simon Geschke and Mitchell Decker for the coming season, the Dutch Professional Continental team announced Friday.
Geschke, a 21-year-old German, has signed for one year with an option for another year. He rode as a stagiaire for Team Milram this fall. Geschke is a climber, and a number of high finishes this season earned him a spot on the national U-23 team at the World Championships in Varese, where he finished 31st.
Docker, 21, is an Australian all-rounder who excels in the classics and sprints. He signed a two-year contract. He has ridden for the national track team at both the junior and senior levels. This year Docker rode for Drapac-Porsche and won a stage in the Tour of Java and had a number of other top finishers. He too represented his country in the Worlds U-23 race.(SW)
