More good news followed on the heels of Franco Pellizotti's victory in the Pan de Corones stage of the Giro d'Italia. On Wednesday, Team Liquigas and Cannondale renewed their sponsorship contract until 2010.
"These athletes give us the inspiration to create outstanding bikes and really motivate everyone at Cannondale to continue this success for as long as possible," said Jeff Frehner, President of Cannondale Sports Group. "We're delighted with the fantastic results we've achieved so far, and we're particularly pleased with the solid, long-lasting partnership that we've built up with the team. We all share the same determination and commitment to reaching our goals: these attributes are just as important for sports competitions as they are for manufacturing bikes."
"It gives us great pleasure to continue working with Cannondale," said Liquigas Sport President Paolo Dal Lago. "The company has become more that just a technical partner. Over the past couple of years, it has always given us what we need and done its best to support our team's ambitions."
