Adam Blythe has been released from his contract with BMC Racing, even though it was due to run through to the end of the 2014 season.



The 24-year-old from Sheffield, who now lives in Monaco, is not named on the Swiss team’s roster for 2014, and has taken all reference to the team off of his Twitter biog.



Max Sciandri tweeted today that Blythe had signed for new British team NFTO, and that Sean Yates was to be the team’s new DS. Both the Downing brothers have also signed for the NFTO team.



Blythe joined BMC, believed to be one of the richest teams in the WorldTour, at the beginning of the 2012 season and has largely ridden in the service of Philippe Gilbert. Before BMC, Blythe had two years with Omega Pharma-Lotto after riding for them as a stagiere at the end of the 2009 season.
