Deroo signs with Skil-Shimano

The Skil-Shimano cycling team has signed David Deroo on a two-year deal. The 21 year-old from Roubaix in Northern France has been put through his paces at Skil-Shimano over the past few weeks and Deroo’s performances in a number of races, including Rund um die Hainleite and Sparkassen Giro Bochum in Germany, were enough to secure him a two-year contract.

Deroo first attracted attention earlier this season on the Circuit des Ardennes, in which he earned a third place finish in stage four, and in the Tour de Bretagne, where he took a stage victory. Deroo came through the ranks at Velo Club Roubaix, where he honed his cycling abilities up to this season before arriving at Skil-Shimano for a trial. The Frenchman is a fine mid-distance climber and also shows the makings of a good sprint finisher in small groups.
