Cyclocross specialist Wilant Van Gils has signed a two-year deal with the new ZZPR cyclocross team of former rider Frank Groenendaal. Van Gils had also been offered a place on the Palmans team, alongside Tom Vannoppen and Davy Commeyne.

While Van Gils' new team has a major sponsor lined up in ZZPR - a building industry company - Groenendaal has yet to secure supporting sponsors. However, while Van Gils knows he has chosen a slightly uncertain future, he told the Dutch ANP news agency, "I have a good feeling about this team. I can become a professional cyclocross racer and go forward in a number of other ways [with ZZPR]."
