Farrar, Sutton and Elijzen depart Cofidis

Cofidis will not extend the contracts of American Tyler Farrar and Australian Christopher Sutton for next season according to wieleruitslagen.be; instead the two riders will have to look elsewhere for teams. Farrar won stage 2 of the GP CTT Correios de Portugal while Sutton won stage 4 of the Circuit de la Sarthe earlier this year.

Also not on the squad for 2008 is silver medalist in the Dutch national time trial Michiel Elijzen, who is departing after signing a two-year contract with Rabobank. Rumors of his departure had circulated, but the rider confirmed the news.
