Hunter offered a two year contract by Rabobank

Hunter, who currently rides for Mapei-Quick Step, has not yet decided to take the offer. He has only ridden for Mapei for a year, after switching from Lampre-Daikin. He has won two stages in the Vuelta España, 2 stages of the Ronde van Nederland and 3 stages Tour of Langkawi amongst his career total of 11 victories.
"We want him in our team to strengthen the squad for the early season. He is an aggressive rider, he fits in with our concept," said team leader Theo De Rooij.
