Brown was happy to stay on with the Dutch team and work for countryman Renshaw.
"What we are doing is very good. We have already gone through a huge improvement. We are learning as much as possible about Mark (Renshaw) and trying to set up a train like they had at HTC,” Brown said on the team website.
“We have the riders, with Theo (Bos) and Mark as sprinters. We are getting better, it's a very nice process. I ride for seven years now for Rabobank, but this is the best.”
Renshaw was equally happy and said that Brown was a major force in the lead-out. "He is clever in the last kilometers. He understands the tactics, knows how to place and he has the power for the super fast last kilometers. We have ridden together a lot this year and he has made great progress in his role in the lead-out. "
