Casper and Coyot to Unibet

Cofidis riders Arnaud Coyot and Jimmy Casper will not race for the French team anymore next season, as they are getting ready to join Belgian Continental Pro team in 2007, which is looking to get a ProTour licence from the UCI. "We haven't reached an agreement with Casper," Cofidis manager Eric Boyer told French AFP. "Coyot had a contract through 2007 but he wanted to leave us. We accepted, even if we regretted to see a young rider go, on which we had counted." Boyer thus decided to take on young French stagiaire Nicolas Hartmann from CC Etupes, and might still re-sign Spaniard Bingen Hernandez.
