Swedish national Champ Jonas Ljungblad has signed a contract with the MrBookmaker.com team, transferring from the Amore e Vita team, with whom he has won many UCI races in the past two seasons.

Ljungblad will target classics such as the Tour of Flanders and the shorter European stage races. His signing has been welcomed by MrBookmaker.com team manger Hilaire Vander Schueren, who is enthusiastic about signing another Swede after Magnus Bäckstedt made his debut with him nine years ago.

The Swedish Amore e Vita champ will race as part of the Belgian team in 2006, and has an option for 2007.
