Julian Dean's weighing up whether to have one more season amongst cycling's elite.
New Zealand's veteran World Tour rider has re-signed with Orica GreenEdge, but has an option to take up a management position with the Australian team instead.
Dean says at the moment he's focusing on riding in next month's national championships in Christchurch.
"If I ride next year I would be riding to do one more Tour de France, so it could probably be my last nationals.''
All seven of New Zealand's World Tour professionals have signed up for the road nationals.
