Another USPS defection

Procycling | Vande Velde opts for Liberty

Citing the Spanish daily Marca, Procycling.com reports that Colorado's Christian Vande Velde, 27, will follow Roberto Heras to the Liberty Seguros team managed by former ONCE directeur sportif Manolo Saiz.

As with Heras, Vande Velde, who rode in the Tour in 1999 and 2001, still has a year left on his USPS contract, but apparently final details of a contract buyout are being worked out.

Vande Velde is the 19th rider to join Liberty Seguros.
