Michael Rasmussen has found a new team. According to an interview with Politiken the Dane is close to signing a contract with a team based in Europe. “I will not say anything about which team until everything is signed. But before the end of the month it will be official,” the former Tour de France king of the mountains said.

He also revealed that he will be riding the Ruta del Sol, making it even more likely that he has signed with a Spanish team. After signing a new co-sponsor, Footon-Servetto could be where he is heading.

The former Rabobank rider was forced out of the yellow jersey in the 2007 Tour for lying about his whereabouts to anti-doping authorities. Rasmussen was eligible to return to competition on July 25, 2009, after serving a two-year ban. The “chicken” made a successful comeback to cycling with his Mexican Tecos-Trek team by winning the Vuelta Ciclista Puebla San Marcos earlier this year.
