Jurgen Van Goolen (Quick.Step) will join Discovery Channel's growing ranks of Belgians next season. The 24 year-old signed a preliminary contract with Johan Bruyneel's team and described himself as very satisfied with the deal, although he bears Quick.Step no ill will.

"It was good for both parties that I looked for a change of air after four years in the same team," Van Goolen told Sportwereld.be. "No bad words about my current team. On the contrary. I will leave for the Vuelta with a clear head and will ride flat out for Tom Boonen for the first 12 days with pleasure. Sometimes I lack a bit of self confidence. Demol seems to me to be the perfect man to help young riders."
