Tour de France King of the mountains Michael Rasmussen has yet to renew his contract with Netherlands team Rabobank, but team manager Theo de Rooij is hoping to secure the services of the fast-climbing Dane through to 2008, according to De Telegraaf. Rabobank and Rasmussen are expected to finalise the details this week.

Rasmussen was Rabobank's most successful rider in 2005, almost making the Tour de France podium but for a disastrous time trial on the penultimate day. By that time, however, the polka-dot jersey of king of the mountains was securely on his back.
