Gerben De Knegt joins Rabobank

Starting January 1, 2006, Gerben de Knegt will leave his AA-Drink/Adviesburo Bejan team and return to the Rabobank Continental Team until March 31, 2008. One of a handful of riders who has been able to follow world champion Sven Nys at the cyclo-cross races this season, recently finishing third at the Pijnacker World Cup, next year marks de Knegt's second stint with Rabobank.

"I really like it. I'm happy my sponsors, AA-Drink and Bejan, have given me the opportunity to make this switch," he said in a team statement. De Knegt celebrated his biggest success in 2002 when he won the Dutch championship in Zeddam, and at the world championships that year, he finished fifth.
