Vanendert to Silence-Lotto

Jelle Vanendert of Francaise des Jeux will ride for Silence-Lotto the coming two seasons, the Belgian team has announced. The 23-year-old turned pro in 2007 with Chocolade Jacques-Topsport Vlaanderen before transfering to FdJ this year.

Vanendert had hip surgery after a terrifying crash in the final stage of the Dauphine Libere when he fell down a ravine and went unnoticed until another rider crashed at the same spot. It was believed at the time that his season would be over, but he returned to racing at the ENECO Tour in August, and also rode the Vuelta a Espana. (SW)
