LES HERBIERS, France (Reuters) - RadioShack have extended their partnership with Johan Bruyneel's cycling team until the end of 2013, the Belgian team boss told Reuters on Thursday.

"We continue for two years with our current partners," Bruynneel said.

Carmakers Nissan also extended their partnership for the same length.

RadioShack's contract was supposed to stop at the end of the season, one year after seven-times Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong retired.

"It is proof that it goes beyond one single rider," said Bruyneel.

The RadioShack team was launched in 2010 after Bruyneel and Armstrong left team Astana.
