Frenchman David Moncoutié has extended his contract with Cofidis through 2009 for what will be his 13th successive season with the French team. The 33 year-old is likely to finish his career with the same team he joined in 1997. "I could not see myself leaving the team with which I started," Moncoutié told AFP.
Moncoutié's biggest victories include two stages of the Tour de France, in 2004 and 2005, and a stage of the 1999 Dauphiné Libéré. On Saturday he finished 10th at the Clásica San Sebastián in Spain.
