There's been a recent spate of cyclists changing teams, the Telegraph reports. Most notably Carlos Sastre, the Spanish rider who won the 2008 Tour de France, has left Cervelo for Geox for next season.

Italian rider Riccardo Ricco has left Ceramica Flaminia after signing a contract with Quick Step and Roger Kluge has left Milram after one year to join the Skil-Shimano team.

Contrary to the trend, Alexandre Vinokourov has extended his contract with Astana for another year.
