Lasse Bøchman will join team CSC this spring, the squad announced Thursday. He "has impressed so much during Team CSC's training camp in Mallorca that the young Danish talent will be given a contract with the team."
The 24 year-old rode as a stagiaire for the outfit directed by Bjarne Riis last fall, but only briefly, crashing badly in the Tour of Ireland. Bøchman and three other young riders were invited to the training camp.
"He's a huge talent and he's proved that to us all here in Majorca. He's got the right attitude and it's obvious that he's been eager to prove himself during the camp," said team manager Bjarne Riis. "We weren't actually planning on any more additions to the team this year, but Lasse is simply to big a talent to pass up. He deserves to get a contract, and I think we'll get to see a lot more of him."
Bøchman currently rides for the Danish team Glud &, Marstrand, and will join CSC "some time" this spring. "It's a childhood dream come true," the young Dane commented. "I was determined to be on absolute top form for the first camp. I was and I'm extremely happy to sign as a pro with Team CSC."
