Barry confirms move to T-Mobile

Michael Barry is leaving Discovery Channel after five years and will be riding for the T-Mobile Team next season, he confirmed on his website,

"I have spent five great years with the same team and I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to race at the highest level where we accomplished a lot together," he said. "I made a lot of good friends, have many fond memories and was able to pursue my dreams and progress."

But he decided it was time to look at new opportunities, and says he is looking forward to the "new" T-Mobile team. "The team will be diverse, international and English speaking with a revamped roster, new goals and objectives, and one that I am honoured to be a member of."
