According to Team CSC one of it's biggest profiles this past season, Swedish Gustav Larsson, has extended his contract with Team Saxo Bank – IT Factory for three years.

The 28-year-old Swedish all rounder has made his mark on this season from the very beginning and has continued to deliver great results all the way through. During his debut season for the Danish team he has won a silver medal at the Olympics and has landed among the top-10 in: Tour of California, Criterium International, Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour of Denmark as well as taken an overall 14th place in Giro d'Italia.

The Swedish rider is looking forward to continuing this trend and hoping for a spot in next year's Tour de France line-up.

”First of all it's very reassuring for me to know that I'm going to be here for the next three years as well. I've had a perfect year with the team and I get on great with my teammates and the crew behind. I'm looking forward to develop even further and even though I've had a good season it's important to me not to loose momentum. I need to set myself new goals and continue to improve. Hopefully I'll be good enough to make the Tour line-up next year,” says Gustav Larsson.

”Gustav has been a valuable asset to our team this year and his results have been great from beginning to end. Besides being a true time trial specialist he's also proven himself to be extremely powerful in the mountains, which he demonstrated with a great effort for the team up front during the toughest climbs in the Giro. He's got the potential to go far in the stage races and it's always a pleasure to extend with a rider, who delivers such brilliant results all the way through the season. It shows great determination, which is why we've chosen to extend Gustav's contract for three years,” announces Bjarne Riis.
