Following the demise of the Giant Global mountain bike team, the squad’s biggest name has found a new home, signing a deal with German-based T-Mobile. Brentjens, who won a gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and was subsequently given knighthood in his native Holland, inked a two-year deal with T-Mobile on Wednesday. He’ll replace Peter Riis Anderson, who is leaving the team after a less-than-spectacular 2002 season.After a lackluster 2001 campaign, Brentjens rebounded in 2002, winning the opening race of the World Cup series in Madrid, adding two more podium performances, and finishing third in the overall standings. Brentjens also became a father for the first time, welcoming his first child into the world late in the summer.
