McEwen signs with Lotto mutation
Although BBC Sport calls it a new team, it's actually the latest incarnation of the Belgian Lotto squad, which was Lotto-Domo this season. Next season, it will be Omega Pharma-Lotto.
Tour de France green jersey Robbie McEwen is the biggest name signed for the squad, and will be joined by fellow Aussie Nick Gates and Belgium's Peter Van Petegem. Belgian reports have the team also signing Bjorn Leukemans or Tom Steels.
