Chris Horner has signed a one-year deal with a US domestic team for the 2015 season, his agent has confirmed to Cyclingnews.

Horner, 43, was not offered a new contract at WorldTour level by Lampre-Merida but the 2013 Vuelta a España winner has been keen to prolong his career for another year. Horner signed for Lampre on a one-year deal at the start of 2013 and was set to race the Giro d'Italia before his Vuelta defence later in the year.
