Gerrit Glomser has signed with Team Volksbank for another season, the team announced Monday. He joined the Austrian Professional Continental team in 2006. "I feel very well here and appreciate the trust that they show in me," the 32 year-old said. "It was clear to me that I would stay here, as long as they need me."
Team manager Thomas Kofler explained that the rider is a key part of the squad's plans for 2008. "Gerrit is an important part of our plans and will help us to make another big step ahead in the next season," said Kofler. "He has not yet reached his peak."
This year Glomser finished second in a stage of the Tour de Suisse, before going on to finish eighth on general classification. He also won a stage in the Tour of Austria.
