Wegelius inks one-year deal with United Healthcare

Charly Wegelius, Tour de France 2009, stage 19

British climbing specialist Charly Wegelius will be racing for American squad United Healthcare in 2011, where he expects to be passing on more than a decade's knowledge of top flight pro racing to the next generation of riders.

"They've got ambitions, but they don't seem to be over-ambitious, they've been very, very professional in the way they've dealt with me so far, and the team wants to grow in a progressive way," Wegelius told Cycling Weekly. "It's all good."
