Rick Zabel has become the latest Israel Start-Up Nation rider to extend his contract with the team. He'll stay at the WorldTour squad for two more years, the team announced on Monday.

The German, a new signing this year from the defunct Katusha-Alpecin squad, is the seventh rider to pen a two-year renewal since May. Tom Van Asbroeck, André Greipel, Mads Würtz Schmidt, Jenthe Biermans, Matthias Brändle and Alexander Cataford have all done the same.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
