34 year-old Erik Dekker plans on riding at least until the end of next season with Rabobank, according to Algemeen Dagblad. "I could stop in October, but then something improbable would have to happen," he said. "For example, a second bank, that will invest 50 million to start a team and wants me as director. That is unlikely, yes. I like riding, I like training, I find this an interesting period of the year, although it is also hard, but I still enjoy it. I want to do another year and a half. And who knows what will happen then? I am not concerned about stopping, but certainly about what I want to do after my career. I find it very important to avoid the so-called 'black hole'...I would prefer to remain active in this world, in contact with the riders. How or what, I don't know, we'll see."
