Team CSC has announced the signing of Danish neo-pro Chris Anker Sørensen. The 22-year-old had previously been a stagiaire on the team, and impressed the team. Manager Bjarne Riis said, "For a long time we have planned to get Chris on the team, because we've never doubted his potential. He has delivered some solid results as an amateur and last year, when he was with the team, he showed us enough to get a contract with Team CSC. Of course he needs some time to develop, but I wouldn't be surprised if he already as a neo-pro made some good results."
The young Dane is happy to get a chance to develop in an environment where he feels comfortable. "It's a dream come true for me and I'm really looking forward to turn professional at Team CSC. After having been on the team for a short period last year, I had no doubt this was where I wanted to be."
