Mathew Hayman will stay with the Rabobank team until the end of 2007, the team has confirmed. The Australian rider reached an agreement with CEO Theo de Rooij over a new contract for two more years.
Hayman is a long term member of the team, joining the amateur squad in 1997. In 2000, he made the switch to Rabobank's pro team, and has been there ever since. His accomplishments include a silver medal in the 1996 Junior World Time Trial Championship, the 1999 Dutch National Championship, a stage and the overall classification in the Mallorca Challenge in 2000, and the overall classification of the Sachsen Tour International this year. He actually finished the latter with a broken collarbone after crashing in the final sprint of the final stage.
