Changes for Skil-Shimano

Dutch Professional Continental Team Skil-Shimano will lose two riders for the coming season, in what may be the first steps in a restructuring of the team. Maarten Tjallingii has signed with Predictor-Lotto, and Aart Vierhouten has not been offered a new contract.

Team Director Rudi Kemmna confirmed to Sportwereld that Tjallingii, who finished 16th in the Eneco Tour, has signed a one-year contract with Predictor. "I have completed my learning process at Skil-Shimano. Now I want to continue growing at a ProTour team," the Dutchman said.
