The former winner of the U23 Tour of Flanders and great talent Marko Kump has signed a contract with Saxo for the 2013 season. Kump who was one of the major stars in the U23 ranks had his start to his pro career derailed as the Geox team collapsed and he chose to go back to the Adria Mobil Continental team in his native Slovenia. This offers him a second chance at the top level.
The one day specialist with a fast finish has had a great season, leading the UCI European Tour and will therefore also bring much needed points to Saxo Bank in their bid for a 2013 World Tour license. All in all a very interesting matchup .
