Having already won the team's colours for two seasons, Nathan Haas has extended his contract with Garmin-Sharp for an additional two years. On his Twitter account, the Australian denies rumours that he has signed with Drapac and describes the team directed by Jonathan Vaughters as his favourite team.

 

Nathan Haas will stay in the WorldTour peloton in 2014 and 2015. Back in April, the Australian renewed his contract with Garmin-Sharp for two years and today he has made his prolonged stay official on his Twitter account.

 

The announcement comes as a reaction to rumours that he - like several other Australian ProTeam riders - had signed a contract with the Drapac team that will step up for continental to pro continental level in 2014. Denying the rumours, he used his Twitter account to tell about his decision to stay with his American team.

 

"Heard wispers today that Id signed for Drapac...think it's about time I let the twittersphere know I resigned for Garmin-sharp back in April," he wrote, later adding: "Very happy to announce that I re-signed for Garmin-Sharp for next year. Two more years with my favourite team."

 

Haas dominated the domestic Australian racing scene in 2011 and ended his season on a high when he beat the world elite at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour and the Japan Cup. Those results earned him a professional contract with Garmin-Sharp where he has raced for the past two seasons.

 

He has failed to win a single race in his first two years and has mostly worked as a domestique. However, he showed his talents when he finished 2nd in last year's Tour of Britain and this year he was 6th in the Tour de Langkawi.

 

Being both a fast finisher and a solid climber, he had hoped to repeat his results in this year's edition of the Tour of Britain but had to leave the race on stage 2.  In May, he rode his first grand tour in Italy but abandoned the race after stage 15.
