Van Bon returns to Rabobank

Leon van Bon will ride for his former team Rabobank next season, according to ANP. Van Bon started his career with Rabobank, but left after 2000 to join the ill-fated Mercury-Viatel team. He then signed for Domo-Farm Frites, which became Lotto-Domo and then Davitamon-Lotto. He was annoyed at the politics within the team, which he blamed on his non-selection for the Tour de France. His departure followed quickly, and he has signed a one year contract with Theo de Rooij's squad.
