Sastre leaves CSC,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.
