The Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team has announced the signing of Dominique Rollin for the 2008 season. The 2006 Canadian national road champion is the first Canadian on the Toyota-United roster in the team's two-year history.

Rollin, 25, won nine races as a first-year professional in 2007 and finished third overall at the inaugural Tour of Missouri. "Dominique represents one of the best of a new batch of very eager, young and talented riders from Canada," said Toyota-United assistant team director Scott Moninger. "I think he possesses extremely mature racing habits for someone of his age and the fact that he's such an all-around rider makes him ideally suited to the U.S. circuit."

Rollin said he was excited to be a part of the team known for its lead-outs that led to a stage win at the Amgen Tour of California and two stage wins at the Tour of Missouri. "To be a part of a winning team and be one of the last men for the sprint is kind of an honour," Rollin said. "I hope I can prove that I can be a good help to the team and get some results as well."

Rollin's addition to the lineup presents Toyota-United with multiple options for the 2008 National Race Calendar and US ProTour circuits. He joins three other newcomers already announced: Ben Day and brothers Hilton and Jonny Clarke. All three are Australians, bringing to six the number of riders from Down Under now on the Toyota-United roster.
