Jens Voigt signed a two-year contract extension with Team CSC, thereby ending all speculation he was looking at other teams.

"I belong with Team CSC and I'm extremely happy we've agreed on extending our contract," said Voigt on team-csc.com. "I want to spend the remaining part of my career her at Team CSC and luckily I've still got lots of time left. This team means a lot to me both professionally and personally. I fell that I'm among my best friends, when I'm at work - and who could ask for more really?

"I feel a great responsibility for the new young talents and at the same time I'm still highly motivated to make some great results of my own," said Voigt. "Even though the cycling sport is going through some rough times at the moment, I'm still one hundred percent motivated, and I feel that with our Anti-Doping Program we're helping to pave the way for a healthy and safe future. I'd very much like to be a part of that."

Voigt is already considering what might come after retirement. "I'd also like to maintain some sort of relationship with the team, when I eventually decide to park my bike in the garage," he said. Director Kim Andersen called Voigt a "big inspiration to new riders."
