Two other Astana riders are also set to join the new team, managed by Johan Bruyneel – Spaniard Jose Luis Rubiera and Portugal’s Sergio Paulinho.
Team RadioShack are due to make their racing debut – if their ProTour licence application is approved – at the Tour Down Under in Australia in January 2010.
Armstrong’s final outing on the road for Astana was at the Tour of Ireland in August.
