Lafis team director at Unibet

Michael Lafis will act as team director for Belgian squad Unibet as of next season. The Swede, a former professional himself, has found an agreement with team manager Koen Terry and sporting manager Jacques Hanegraaf on Tuesday, according to Belgian news agencies.

Lafis rode his last season as a pro in 2000, with Farm Frites, where he met Hanegraaf. "Jacques was the general manager of the team at the time," said Lafis, who was involved with a Swedish cycling magazine and the Tour of Sweden after he quit the sport. "I have enough experience as a rider to be able to help Unibet get some nice results."
