Vervecken to change teams in 2009

Former world cyclo-cross champion Erwin Vervecken will move to the Revor Cycling Team as of January 1, 2009 according to Sport Wereld. Revor owner Jan Maes is said to have confirmed rumours that the Belgian has agreed to leave his Fidea team and will start the Grand Prix Sven Nys in Baal, the first cyclo-cross event of the year, wearing the Revor jersey.

The Revor team, based in West-Flanders, has also secured the signatures of Jan Soetens, David Commeyne and David Willemsens. Besides the loss of Vervecken, Fidea will also see Klass Vantornout move to Sunweb-Pro Job in 2009, but will retain the services of Bart Wellens and Czech champion Zdenek Stybar.
