Dutch rider Niki Terpstra (Ubbink-Syntec) will ride for Milram in 2007, his current team reports. The 22 year-old from Krommenie has signed a two year contract with the Italian ProTour team. Terpstra has impressed this year, with a win in the queen stage of the Tour of Belgium, as well as a stage in the Tour of Normandy and the overall of the OZ wielerweekend, where he also won the time trial. He was also sixth in the time trial of the Ster Elektrotoer.
After the Dutch championship in Maastricht, Terpstra will ride the European championship for espoirs in Valkenburg in July.
"I'm really really happy with this chance," said Terpstra. "Milram is a great team with a good structure. The management team has a lot of confidence in me and I will certainly not let them down."
