Today, Belgian manufacturer Ridley announced it would be ending its four-year relationship with the Silence-Lotto squad and will supply the bicycles for the Russian superteam Katusha next season. They will be riding Ridley‘s Dean and Noah models, with the groupset supplier yet to be confirmed.

Katusha, which is evolving from the Tinkoff set-up, has had a huge injection of funding reported to be in the region of 30 million euros. They have already signed Robbie McEwen and Filippo Pozzato, and are set to clinch Vladimir Karpets. British Cycling Academy rider Ben Swift is also rumoured to be on the Katusha shopping list.

And the rumour is that Cadel Evans and his Silence-Lotto team-mates will be on Museeuw bikes for 2009, although that is yet to be confirmed.

That is only one of the changes in the professional peloton for 2009 as the jostling to supply the biggest teams in the world with bikes continues.
