Australian Luke Roberts will return to the German Team Kuota-Senges after three years with Team CSC. The Olympic and World Champion rode for the Continental team from 2002 to 2004, before joining CSC.

"We had good years with Luke at ComNet-Snges [one of the team's earlier names - ed.]," said Team Manager Markus Ganser. "Now we have a much stronger team with both young and experienced riders. In 2008 we want to move up a step."

Roberts won the 4,000 meter team pursuit on the track in 2004 in both the Athens Olympics and the World Championships. "Luke should not only bring in wins for us, he can surely also give our young riders a lot of information and tips about training and tactics," Ganser said. "We offer him a perfect racing calendar for his preparations for the Olympic Games in Beijing."
