Levi Leipheimer wins overall

Levi Leipheimer has signed up to join Lance Armstrong's Team RadioShack for 2010.

Leipheimer has signed up to the new US-based outfit for two years, according to a report on ESPN. The American was a team-mate with Armstrong at Astana, as well as on Armstrong's former Discovery Channel team.

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.

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. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
