Flecha to Rabobank

Juan-Antonio Flecha will ride for Rabobank next year, Dutch newsagency ANP reports. The Spaniard, who is currently with Giancarlo Ferretti's uncertain Fassa Bortolo squad, has signed a preliminary contract with the Dutch team. Flecha waited until mid way through the Tour before making his decision to leave. His presence should benefit Rabobank in the classics and in the major stage races, as he is renowned for being a strong, attacking rider.
