The reigning Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre announced Friday he is swapping his current cycling team CSC for the Cervelo Test team at the end of the current season.

The 33-year-old Sastre has been with the Denmark-based CSC since2002, finishing second in the 2005 Vuelta de Espana (Tour of Spain)and third in the 2006 Tour de France, before his triumph this summer.

Sastre confirmed his move in a statement on his website www. carlossastre.com.

"There have been a lot of rumors about my future in recent days. Now the time has come for me to talk about my future and I will do so from a viewpoint of total respect toward my current team CSC," he said in a statement.

"I have had seven unforgettable years both from a personal and sporting point of view, but there is a before and after for everything in this life and my future lies in looking a bit further ahead," he added. "That is one of the most important reasons why I have decided to join the Cervelo Test team."

"It is a new team and fits in very well with my way of being," explained Sastre.
