New team for Sastre and Gerolsteiners?

Will Team Gerolsteiner be "reborn" as a new team under the management of Gerolsteiner's Christian Henn? That is the latest rumour making the rounds, which also puts Canadian bicycle manufacturer Cervelo as title sponsor for this new squad which is reportedly to be registered in Switzerland.

According to, the team could include Tour de France champion Carlos Sastre, who has yet to renew his contract with the CSC team. Sastre, whose contract with Team CSC expires the end of this year, recently issued a statement noting that he is bound to CSC through the end of this year and at the moment wants to concentrate his attention on the upcoming Vuelta a España. He did not address the question of where he will ride next year, leaving it open for speculation.
