The 27 year-old Dane Lars Bak has extended his contract with Team CSC for two more years. The Danish Time Trial Champion this year has showed good form recently by winning a stage in Tour de la Region Wallonne.

"I'm really happy to extend my contract with Team CSC, because there's no doubt it's my preferred team," said Bak via the team's website,

"I truly feel that the team has confidence in my abilities, which of course makes me very proud. I'm neither a mountain specialist nor a sprinter, but I've still got a lot to give as an all-round rider. I've had some good results over the last couple of years, but I'm always motivated to be a team player. As far as my career goes I think, I have my best years ahead of me yet and I look forward to going all the way with Team CSC."

Sports director Kim Andersen confirmed his ongoing contract at Team CSC. "Lars has improved tremendously during the last few seasons and I'm positive that he'll only get better still.

"He's very all-round and at the same time has the attitude of a winner, who can turn things around to his own advantage. He's slowly but surely become one of the very best Danish riders and he fits perfectly on the team. He has a great attitude towards his work so it was only natural to extend Lars' contract with us."
