According to Dutch daily newspaper 'Brabants Dagblad' the team wants to start in 2009 with a Pro-Continental license.
Gisbers wants to sign twelve Dutch young guns for the team. Gisbers said: "The best talented riders will obviously become
an offer from Rabobank. We might work with the riders which they didn't sign."
Gisbers want to have his new team ready in November. He claims that he already has a title sponsor but does not want
to announce the name of his sponsor. Gisbers said: "Its a new company which is negotiating with several intrested parties."
National trainer Egon van Kessel works as an advisor for the new team. Van Kessel told Dutch based website wielrensite.nl:
"Dutch cycling really needs a third third pro team. Not enough talented riders get signed, although we do have a lot of talented
riders. This year only two espoirs became pro in the Netherlands but for instance eight in Belgium. Although we really do
have more talented riders.
With Rabobank and Skil-Shimano Dutch cycling is in a situation where there are not enough spots for young Dutch riders.
van Kessel said: "Because Skil-Shimano has to sign a lot of foreign riders [sponsor Shimano demands that the team also signs
Japanese riders, editor] there is room for a third Dutch team." Van Kessel continued by saying: "Dutch cycling is to much
depending on Rabobank as a sponsor."
Van Kessel concluded by saying: "The audience can expect from a third Dutch team that it will mainly focus on riders
who are strong at one day races. Riders who are strong at stage races are already signed by Rabobank."
In the eighties Jan Gisbers founded the legendary PDM team with riders like Raoul Alcala, Erik Breuking, Gert-Jan Theunisse
and Steven Rooks. Gisbers also worked for Kwantum (Jan Raas) and Festina where he was sacked in 1993. The 67 year old continued
to follow cycling but did not work in professional cycling since 1993.
