The former Tour de France champion will remain with Cervelo for the upcoming Vuelta a Espana before making the move.

"The trust that they've placed in me since the very first conversations has been the most important factor that has pushed me towards this new project," the Spaniard said.

"But the background and experience of its leaders has also had an influence as they've been in cycling for years and years."

Sastre, 35, said the switch to Geox "will not alter anything" regarding his participation with his current team in the Vuelta, which begins on August 28.

"What's more, it is spurring me on even more to fight it out in a race that I really like and which I feel a lot of respect and fondness for," he added.
