Milatz renews with Multivan Merida

Germany's Moritz Milatz will stay with the Multivan Merida team for 2009 after a successful season. Aiming to become the top German mountain biker, he signed a two-year contract with the team. Moritz finished ninth at the UCI World Championships in Italy and sixth at the final round of the UCI World Cup in Schladming. He also took the overall victory in the German Bundesliga series.

"Moritz started racing with talent. We have been working with him since 2004, and it was important for us that he develop slowly but sustainably," said team manager Andreas Rotter.

"Since he was changing from a running sport to cycling, it took us more than a year to bring him up. His impressive results show us that our strategy was the right one. I'm certain that Moritz will make the podium of the world championships."
