Stefano Zanini didn't get a new contract to ride for Team Predictor-Lotto - soon to be Silence-Lotto - for next season, but the 38 year-old will be staying with the team in another capacity. He will be a Directeur Sportif for the Belgian team, he announced at a press conference Saturday.

Zanini had thirty career wins, and was the first Italian to win the Amstel Gold Race, in 1996. He turned pro in 1991 with Navigare (1991-1994) and rode for Gewiss (1995-1996), Mapei/Quick.Step (1997-2005) and Liquigas (2006), before riding for Predictor Lotto this year.
