Skil-Shimano extends with Maarten den Bakker

Maarten den Bakker signed a one year contract extension with Skil-Shimano. The 38 year-old's second season at Skil-Shimano will also be his last as a rider. Although Den Bakker's primary role has been to nurture his young team-mates, he has still found time to log his own top performances including victory in the Noord Nederland Tour at the end of June and a third-place finish in the Dutch Championships the following month.

"I feel very much at home here and I'm happy to ride for this team in my final year. This season has shown that I am still performing at a good level, something I certainly want to continue next year so I can end my career well," said Den Bakker
