Unibet.com has decided not to extend the contract of Dutch rider Bobbie Traksel, according to an ANP report. Traksel has had a bad season to date, breaking two ribs and his shoulder blade in a crash on the weekend.
Unibet's team consultant Jacques Hanegraaf was quoted as saying, "It's disappointing for him, he's also had a lot of bad luck. But the results weren't enough for a new offer."
Hanegraaf also commented on the status of Laurens ten Dam, who reportedly has an offer from Rabobank. "If that's the case, then I will get involved," he said. "He is still under contract with us for another year. We want to hold him to that."
