Discovery Team Signs Popovych

Excellent news!

"Tailwind Sports, the sports management company that co-owns and manages the United States Postal Service Professional Cycling TeamĀ®, which is presented by Berry Floor, has announced the team has signed Ukrainian standout Yaroslav Popovych to a three-year contract beginning in 2005."

I've been really impressed with, and followed, Popovych since he finished third in the Giro d'Italia a couple of years back. I'd heard rumour's that Discovery - the new sponsor of Armstrong's team next year - were looking to sign him but thought it was just that. A rumour.

But no, it's true! And, cycling geek that I am, I'm excited.
