Blythe leaves BMC Racing
English sprinter Adam Blythe has left BMC Racing and signed for newly-formed British team NFTO Pro Cycling.
The 24-year-old Yorkshireman joined BMC in 2012 but registered only two victories in his two seasons with the American squad.
BMC unveiled their roster for the 2014 last week and Blythe was not present.
It has now emerged that he will now drop down two tiers to join NFTO, who have already recruited Britain's Russell Downing from NetApp-Endura and brother Dean Downing from Madison Genesis.
BMC race in the UCI WorldTour, while NFTO will form part of the Continental tour.
Blythe moved to BMC from Omega Pharma - Lotto alongside Philippe Gilbert.
