Collingwood to ride for regiostrom-Senges

Australian rider Joshua Collingwood has signed to ride for regiostrom-Senges (formerly Comnet-Senges) in 2006. The team says this latest signing is certainly one of their brightest hopes in recent seasons.

Collingwood, having taken time off the bike to complete his doctorate in medicine and biochemistry, returned to racing mid-season and won the first stage and took third on the sixth stage of the Herald Sun Tour to place 12 overall in the event. The 28-year-old also placed second in the Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic and the Australian time trial championships.

It's not Collingwood's first time in Europe; the 1996 junior time trial world champion rode for Czech squad ZVZ-Wüstenrot in 2000 and will live in Stolberg during his time with the German team. The team will be presented in Stolberg on February 3, 2006.
