Mont Ventoux king Gárate and Kozontchouk continue with Dutch Rabobank team

Juan Manuel Gárate and Dmitry Kozontchouk both extended their contracts with Rabobank for one year, the Dutch ProTour team announced.

Spaniard Gárate, 33, saved the Tour de France this year for the team when he won the Mont Ventoux stage. His contract, which ran through 2010, will now go through the 2011 season. He joined Rabobank this year after three years with Quick Step. He turned professional with Lampre in 2000.

Russian Kozontchouk, 25, had a contract that expired at the end of this year, but he extended for one more year. He worked his way up through the Rabobank ranks after he joined its Continental team in 2005.
