Experienced Tankink signs for another two years

Bram Tankink has re-signed for another two years with his current Rabobank squad, extending his time with the Dutch team until the end of 2014. This will be Tankink’s fifth season with the team, who have shown their appreciation just days before the Tour de France begins. Tankink will start his sixth Tour on Saturday and his job will be that of road captain, calling the shots as the team attempts to place Robert Gesink and Bauke Mollema into the higher echelons of the general classification standings.
