Gerrans, Hayman and Sutton to join Team Sky
Australian riders Simon Gerrans, Matt Hayman and Chris Sutton are all set to ride for the British-based Team Sky next year.
The three were named on Wednesday in a report filed by online newspaper The Australian.
Tour de France and Giro d'Italia 2009 stage winner Gerrans moves from Cervelo, Hayman from Rabobank and Sutton from Garmin-Slipstream.
Team Sky are backed by the satellite broadcaster owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and managed by a team headed by Dave Brailsford and Scott Sunderland.
The squad is due to officially unveil the exact line-up with the next two weeks. The squad has applied for a ProTour licence, and is hoping to start racing at the Tour Down Under, Australia, in January 2010.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success.

He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
