Team CSC-Saxo Bank has extended its contract with 23-year old Anders Lund. The Danish rider began his career as a professional rider with the team in 2006 and has now had his contract extended for another year.
"Anders still has great potential and we'd like to keep him around and help him evolve," said Bjarne Riis. "He's still got his first pro victory ahead of him, but I know he's a major talent, who can go far - so it's only a matter of time. He managed to get through a tough Giro d'Italia fine this year and I think it has helped toughen him up and also provided him with important experience and these two things in combination might help him on his way to achieving the results his talent warrants."
Lund is looking forward to another year with his home squad. "I'm really happy to have my contract extended and I look forward to improving my game even further in order to achieve some great results," said Anders Lund. "I've been through an important learning process and I'm extremely motivated to live up to the faith the team has shown in me by extending my contract. Now I'll have to concentrate on getting better and I know I've got the best possible conditions to do so right here."
