    Sastre leaves CSC

    http://www.skysports.com/story/0,195...098651,00.html

    Carlos Sastre, who won the Tour de France for the first time this year, has announced that he has left CSC-Saxobank to join the Cervélo TestTeam project.

    The 33-year-old, who finally rode into Paris in the yellow jersey in July, said he wants to achieve more goals in cycling and can do this with the new Canadian-based team that was only founded last month.

    Hmm, shallow move

    Team CSC has been in the TDF several yrs running - along with Carlos for 7 yrs.
    So after Schleck brothers sacrificed their hopes+dreams to put Carlos on top - Carlos bugs out.

    I respect Carlos, but this move appears shallow.
    Much harder to win if you don't have a strong team to back you up methinks.
    Lets see.

    Good luck; I will cheer for Frank & Andy - and LA in TDF-09.
    Running Cat5e is easier than running Cat5. Just unroll the wire bundle ;)
