Eichler extends with Milram

Team Milram extended its contract with Classics specialist Markus Eichler for two years, it announced today. It was the fourth contract extension on the team, to go along with eight new riders, as the team continues to take shape for the coming season.

Eichler, 26, rode for the Professional Continental Team Comnet-Senges/Regiostrom-Senges for four years before joining Unibet.com in 2007 and Milram in 2008. This year he rode not only the Spring Classics but also the Giro d'Italia and the Deutschland Tour.

"We are happy that in Markus and that we can keep someone on the team who fits with us not only athletically, but personally," said Gerry van Gerwen, Milram's General Manager. "He is a good rider, who has proven himself in our team to be a good team player and helper." (SW)
