Omega Pharma-Lotto opens up the new year with a new name, among other things. They also got a new Website, for even more freshness in the new year. They have adopted the full name of their co-sponsor, Omega Pharma, in hopes to publicize the company rather than its products. General manager Geert Coeman said that the team got off to a “a (rather too) slow start” last season, but eventually got rolling in the right direction. With Cadel Evans leaving the team, Jurgen Van den Broek will be the go-to man for the Grand Tours, with help from newcomer Daniel Moreno. Looking back on last year, Sports Manager Marc Sergeant said that 2009 “brought us all sorts of miseries and problems as well as disillusions by results and by men, but I prefer to remember the fantastic moments we lived through our riders.”
