Gustavo Dominguez has renewed his contract with the Spanish Pro Continental Xacobeo Galicia team one year for the 2010 season. The 29-year-old Spaniard, who turned professional in 2002 with Carvalhelhos - Boavista, has been with Xacobeo Galicia since 2007. Dominguez has also raced for Orbea and Relax - Bodysol during his eight-year professional career.

Dominguez had a rough start to the 2009 season when he broke his collarbone in the final stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y León in March.

After a lengthy recovery he bounced back to take part in the Vuelta a España where the Xacobeo Galicia team won the overall team classification. Despite crashing heavily near the finish of the fourth stage in Liège, Belgium, the Spaniard persevered to finish 77th overall.

Dominguez has finished the Vuelta a España each of his three years with Xacobeo Galicia. Other career highlights include second in a stage and fourth overall at the 2005 GP do Oeste, second in the 2005 GP Villafranca de Ordizia, seventh in the 2006 Vuelta a Extremadura and 11th overall at the 2005 Tour de l'Avenir.
