Basso agrees to new CSC contract
Ivan Basso prepares to start a stage in this year's Tour de France
Basso is 2 mins, 46secs behind Armstrong in the standings
Tour de France contender Ivan Basso has ended speculation about his future by signing a new two-year contract with the Danish CSC team.

The 27-year-old Italian is Lance Armstrong's closest rival for the yellow jersey this year after finishing third in last year's race.

CSC, run by former race winner Bjarne Riis, used Monday's rest day to reveal Basso's new deal, extended until 2008.

Basso is considered a likely Tour winner after Armstrong's retirement.
