Top sprinter Robbie McEwen has extended his current contract with Belgian team Davitamon-Lotto for another two years. The existing agreement between the two saw the Australian with the team until 2006; now McEwen is committed to Marc Sergeant's squad until 2008.
"I'm very happy with it," said McEwen, who is on his way back to Australia with his pregnant wife Angelique and son Ewan today. "In 2008, I'm 36 and then we'll see. I know what I've got with this team and they, too, know very well what they've got with me. The contract of my friend Nick Gates was also opened to 2008, and Henk Vogels could extend his too. It's perfect!"
