Feillu extends

Young French hopeful Romain Feillu (Agritubel) has extended his contract with the Professional Continental team through 2009. The Silver medallist of the 2006 U23 Road World's in Salzburg did not wait for the Tour de France to make his decision. "I received some other proposals from various teams, but I chose to stay for the familiar feeling within the team," said the 24 year-old. "I'm very happy to pursue my adventure with this outfit and its members, whom I have become very attached to."

Feillu had been out with toxoplasmosis at the beginning of the season, but is back to form after his recent win of the Boucles de l'Aulne. He is part of Agritubel's line-up for the Tour de France this year.
