Abandon Ship - Update

The list of riders leaving the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling squad at the end of 2006 is up to eleven. The riders leaving are:

Jose Azevedo
Michael Barry
Manuel “Triki” Beltran
Viatcheslav “Eki” Ekimov
Roger Hammond
Leif Hoste
Benoit Joachim
Gennady Mikhaylov
Paolo Savoldelli
Jurgen Van Den Broeck
Max Van Heeswijk

So far, Disco has signed five men to replace the departing riders, they are Sergio Paulinho, Levi Leipheimer, Tomas Vaitkus, Uros Murn and Gianni Meersman. Other than Leipheimer, definitely some young blood. Expect more signing announcements to fill the remaining vacant spots.
