Sprint sensation, Mark Cavendish has re-signed his current contract with Team Columbia for a further two years, according to Belgian news outlet Sporza. The Brit will now ride for the squad until 2011.

Cavendish had a break through season this year; he won four stages a piece in both the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia.

Team Columbia was obviously hoping to hang onto the biggest sprinting talent since Tom Boonen. His contract with Columbia includes an option for another season after 2011.
