The new team of ex-Unibet manager Jacques Hanegraaf is starting to take its final form. Hanegraaf announced in October that he had secured a sponsor, and would seek a ProTour of Professional Continental license from the UCI.
According to sportwereld.be, the team of 17 or 18 riders will include Jimmy Casper, Gil Suray, Tom Criel, Sergey Kolesnikov and Matthé Pronk (all ex-Unibet) and is likely to be led by Unibet director, Hilaire Van der Schueren.
Hanegraaf still has not revealed the title sponsor, but said that the company is from outside Belgium, and will fund a budget of 4 million euros.
