The international women's team Flexpoint will remain for a least another year in the professional peloton, after the sponsor extended its agreement with the outfit. The Dutch team's sponsor announced on Tuesday the extension of its agreement with team owner Jean-Paul Van Poppel, which will see the outfit, now in its fourth year, continue through to the end of 2009.
"We had in principle an agreement up until and including this season, but I am glad that in this Olympic year we can focus on the sports-loving targets and not on finding a new sponsor," said Van Poppel.
Flexpoint roster for 2008: Mirjam Melchers- van Poppel (Ned), Elisabeth Braam (Ned), Loes Gunnewijk (Ned), Britt Jochems (Ned), Jacobien Kanis (Ned), Bianca Knöpfle (Ger), Loes Markerink (Ned), Amber Neben (USA), Iris Slappendel (Ned), Adriëne Snijder (Ned), Anita Valen (Nor), Elise van Hage (Ned) and Suzanne van Veen (Ned).
