Bruyneel says more riders may come to Disco

By Tim Maloney - European Editor

The Discovery team manager, Johan Bruyneel, said that there is likely to be several other new names announced in early 2007 for the US-backed team, following the signing of British trackie Stephen Cummings earlier this week.

The 42-year-old Bruyneel, originally from Izegem, Belgium, now lives in Madrid, Spain. Bruyneel also won the Maillot Jaune after taking Stage 7 in Liege, Belgium, in 1995, but wore it only for one stage.

Bruyneel recently finished work on a book, You Might as Well Win, slated to be published by Houghton-Mifflin late in 2007.

Cyclingews spoke to Bruyneel at his home in Madrid where he was enjoying a holiday season at home. "I wanted to do a website (www.johanbruyneel.com) where I could reach out to all the people who have supported me personally over the years." His website offers the first chapter of the book as a freee download.
