Barry to T-Mobile?

by Susan Westemeyer

Canadian media are reporting that Michael Barry is joining T-Mobile Team. Discovery Channel Team Manager Johan Bruyneel confirmed that the Canadian is leaving his team. "It is natural that we will make changes and that some riders will also look to make a change," Bruyneel said. "I am very confident that we will continue to win big races in 2007 with our new roster."

However, it looks like sprinter Olaf Pollack will not be riding for T-Mobile next year. According to the Laustizer Rundschau Online, he and incoming team manager Rolf Aldag have not been able to agree on a contract extension. "I would like to stay," Pollack said, but he is now looking for other offers.

It is also being reported that Brian Vandborg will join CSC teammate Jacob Piil und Directeur Sportif Tristan Hoffman at T-Mobile next season. The 25-year-old is the reigning Danish time trial champion.
