Swedish mountain biker Fredrik Kessiakoff signed with ProTour Team Fuji-Servetto. He is one of the world's top mountain bike riders, but is taking his final step towards road cycling by signing with the squad.

In addition to several Swedish mountain biking titles, he has earned World Cup race wins, as well as podium places at European and World Championships. Kessiakoff has finished the last four seasons within the top five riders in the UCI Cross-Country rankings.

The rider's signing takes Fuji-Servetto's team to 24 for the season ahead. Kessiakoff is amongst a handful of late signings by the squad, which inked contracts with both Ivan Dominguez and Hilton Clarke this month.
