Axel Merckx, Roger Hammond to join Discovery?
Belgian newspaper Het Niewsblad reports that Axel "son of Eddy" Merckx will join Discovery Channel (formerly US Postal) for the 2005 season.
Britain's Roger Hammond, currently riding for Mr. Bookmaker.com, is also reportedly joining the US-based squad.
Merckx previously rode for Motorola alongside Lance Armstrong, back when they rode bikes from Eddy Merckx.
They'll join Armstrong and Ukraine's Yaroslav Popovych, who signed a 3-year contract with Tailwind Sports earlier this week.
