Julich signs two-year extension with CSC
Bobby Julich, who turns 34 this week, signed a 2-year extension with Bjarne Riis' CSC squad, which rejuvenated the American's career in 2004. Julich's high point was a bronze medal in the ITT at the Athens Olympics.
Julich said he hopes to finish his career with CSC.
"Now that I've regained confidence, I want to be steady for the entire season," he told French newspaper L'Equipe. "I'll help Ivan Basso on the Tour de France, but in other races like Paris-Nice I could play my own hand."
In other CSC news, Australia's Scott Sunderland (who rode for Alessio through 2004) joins the team, taking over from Sean Yates, who left CSC for the Discovery Channel team as assistant sporting director.
