Kalentieva renews with Topeak Ergon through 2010

Irina Kalentieva has extended her contract with Topeak Ergon for another two years through 2010. Despite plenty of other offers, the 2007 World Champion, who finished third at the 2008 World Championships, did not seriously entertain ideas of changing teams.

"I actually couldn’t imagine riding for some other team," said the 30 year-old Kalentieva, who first signed for the green and black clad squad in 2006. Since joining the team, she has claimed one World Championship title, two silver medals at the European Championships, one overall World Cup series win and three World Cup wins. She ended the 2007 season ranked number one in the world.
