Skil-Shimano has extended the contracts of Dutch rider Floris Goesinnen and Frenchman David Deroo. The two riders will now stay with the Pro Continental team until at least the end of 2010.

Goesinnen, 25, has ridden with Skil-Shimano since 2006. He began his professional career two years earlier with Team Moser. A stage winner at the Tour d'Ain in 2008, he has also claimed the Mountains classification at the Eneco Tour and recorded victory at Belgium's Nationale Sluitingprijs - Putte-Kapellen in 2007.

Deroo will enter his fifth season with the team. While he is yet to win a race in his four-year professional career, Skil-Shimano have extended the 24-year-old's contract after top-ten stage finishes at the Tour of Belgium and Eneco Tour this year.

Skil-Shimano will remain a Pro Continental squad in 2010. The Dutch team announced earlier this month that it had withdrawn its application for a ProTour licence.
