TIAA-CREF confirms Pate and Creed

The TIAA-CREF team has confirmed that its ranks will be strengthened next year by the addition of two of the USA's best younger riders. Danny Pate, 25, the 2001 under-23 time trial world champion, and Mike Creed, 24, who this year rode for Discovery Channel, will both join the team for 2006.

TIAA-CREF is expected to spend more time in Europe in 2006, and has hired former CSC, US Postal and Motorola directeur sportif Johnny Weltz as its director for European racing.
