Kluge won silver in the points race at the Beijing Olympics.

Germany’s Olympic points silver medalist Roger Kluge is switching to Dutch outfit Skil-Shimano after a season with Milram, he said Monday.

The 24-year-old is making the switch as Milram seeks new sponsors after Germany’s Nordmilch withdrew.

Kluge raced in this year’s Tour de France but pulled out after fracturing his wrist during the eighth stage.
