Gabriel Rasch: Has joined Team Sky

Team Sky have announced Gabriel Rasch as their first signing for the 2013 season.

The 36-year-old Norwegian, a Classics specialist who also has five Grand Tour appearances to his name, joins after one season at FDJ-BigMat.

Rasch said: "Team Sky were the number one team I wanted to join and I'm really happy to have signed. Next season I hope I can get into the Classics team because I have a lot of experience with that type of riding, and I'll be happy to work as a domestique during the stage races as well."

Team Sky race coach Rod Ellingworth said: "It's great to have Gabriel on board. Not only will he be a huge asset to us in the Classics, his attitude and experience will be of massive benefit to the team."
