Cinelli-OPD without 2009 licence


Frank Vandenbroucke, Jörg Jaksche and the rest of Team Cinelli-OPD have to look for new employers after the team manager, Nico Mattan, heard Thursday afternoon that it will not receive UCI licence.

"With 99 percent certainty, I will find a new team for myself, the other four Belgian riders," he said to He explained that he will get in touch with other Continental teams.

He noted that he will use his contacts, along with bike manufacturer Cinelli, to find a team with which they can merge.

"Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne is in only three weeks. Frank Vandenbroucke and Bert Roesems will be at the start." (SW)
