Ukrainian Volodymyr Bileka (Discovery Channel) and Belgian Gorik Gardeyn (Unibet) are the latest riders to find a team after their teams folded and left them on the job market. Both will join Predictor-Lotto, the team announced Sunday. 28 year-old Bileka will have a common language with his compatriot and Discovery Channel team-mate Yaroslav Popovych who signed with the team earlier this month.

27 year-old Gardeyn comes from the embattled team as a winner of a stage of the Tour of Belgium.

Aurélien Passeron has signed a three year contract with the Saunier Duval team, the squad announced on Sunday. The U23 French Champion began his professional career with Acqua & Sapone this year, and scored two victories: the GP Industria & Commercio Artigianato-Carnaghese and stage three of the Vuelta a Burgos.

Passeron joins other young riders on the 2008 team, including neo-pros Héctor González and Ermanno Capelli, Beñat Intxausti (Grupo Nicolás Mateos), and fellow Frenchman Denis Flahaut (Jartazi-Promo Fashion). Additionally, Ángel "Litu" Gómez and David de la Fuente have renewed their contracts for one and two seasons, respectively.
