Roly and Jesse have signed to ride for the new Trek team that RadioShack is evolving into for next year. No word yet on George Bennett although his solid ride in Colorado 8th on GC (top RadioShack rider) and 3rd in the young rider classification should have kept his stock high.

So George Bennett won't be at Trek next year... but will still be in a World Tour team.

George Bennett reportedly one of the two riders that Cannondale are still negotiating with.

Nice! :cool: :thumbsup:

Pretty tough year to negotiate a new contract I'd imagine with the number of teams that folded.

    So that means all NZ 2013 protour riders still have a contract in 2014, right? Henderson, Bauer, Roulston, Bennett, Bewley.

    Interesting stats out of the riders who haven't (yet) secured contracts for 2014...

    http://www.procyclingstats.com/statistics.php?id=114

    Only 3 in the top 100 ranked - Chris Horner, Sammy Sanchez and Igor Anton. Got a bit of a surprise that the 10th highest ranking rider who hasn't got a ride for next year is the ever consistent Rico Rogers (249th).
