The management from Skil-Shimano has extended the contracts of
Mitchell Docker and Koen de Kort for one more year.
Australian Mitchell Docker (23), who regularly excelled in the
under 23 category is in his second season by Skil-Shimano. His
talent was shown in the Delta Tour and the Route du Sud. In both
stage races he won a stage. Docker has been developing in the
classics this year and can take on hilly stage races as well.
Thanks to his fast finsh, he is a rider that can win stages.
Koen de Kort (27) has come along well this season. He has shown
this in the Flemish classics such as the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad,
Dwars door Vlaanderen and Gent-Wevelgem. The Brabander is an
all-rounder and is active on various terrains in tour races and
therefore is of great value to Skil-Shimano.
