US Postal have signed up Portuguese cyclist Jose Azevedo to help Lance Armstrong's bid for a sixth straight Tour de France victory next year.
The 30-year-old will replace Roberto Heras, who has moved to Liberty.
"Lance is going to be trying for his sixth consecutive victory in the Tour and they've hired me to help him achieve that objective," said Azevedo.
Azevedo was 26th in the 2003 Tour, racing for ONCE-Eroski.
