Olympic Games road race gold medalist Samuel Sánchez confirmed that he will stay with his Euskaltel Euskadi for another three years, until 2010.
"I am very happy and satisfied. This is my lifetime team, and I am sincere. I have never imagined myself in another jersey..." said Sánchez.
The Spaniard had previously announced his intentions to stick with his orange-clad teammates on Euskaltel Euskadi, but at the time, he had not yet signed a contract.
On Saturday, Sánchez finished 27th in the Giro di Lombardia, in a group 1'34" behind solo winner Damiano Cunego (Lampre).
