Team Volksbank announced that it has signed Cameron Wurf, a 24 year-old Australian time trial specialist. He started the season with the Continental team CT Cinelli, but will now transfer to the Austrian Professional Continental team.
Wurf started his career as a rower, competing in that sport in the 2004 Olympics in Athens. In 2007 he turned to cycling and rode for the US-based team Priority Health. Last year he was ninth overall in the Herald Sun Tour, and won the Oceania time trial championship and the Chrono Champenois.
