Team Vorarlberg-Corratec has announced that Renée Haselbacher has extended his contract for one more year with the Australian team. 32-year-old Haselbacher took his time to make a decision on whether or not to retire. “For a long time I was not sure what I wanted to do with my life,” he said. His 2009 season was riddled with injury and illness; he had a crash in the Ronde van Vlaanderen, which left him with a broken elbow and fractured face, and was diagnosed with mononucleosis in September. His 17-month-old son, Renée junior, played a part in his return to racing. “I absolutely want to present him with a victory. Until then I can’t stop riding,” he said. Haselbacher will begin his season with the Tour de Langkawi in March.
