Former Danish road champion Alex Rasmussen is the latest HTC-Highroad rider to find a new home for 2012. The winner of the 2011 Philadelphia International Cycling Championship, and four-time track world champion, will join Garmin-Cervelo next year.

“Alex is a great talent and we’re very excited to bring him to our team in 2012,” said Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports. “He’s proven that he’s versatile rider — he’s obviously gifted on the track and he’s translated that to the road. He is great in lead outs, he’s an exceptional time trialist, and he’s developing into a great classics rider. He’ll be a strong addition and we look forward to working with him next year.”
