Team CSC has extended the contract with the only Norwegian rider in the team, Kurt-Asle Arvesen, for another two years, which will keep him on the team at least until the end of 2009.
Arvesen was Norway's national time trial champion in 2006. This year, he won stage 8 of the Giro d'Italia, the GP Herning, and took third in the Ster Elekrotoer.
Arvesen has been a pro since 1998. Prior to CSC, he rode for Asics (1998), Riso Scotti (1999), Amica Chips (2000), and Team fakta (2001-2003).
