Francaise des Jeux sprinter Bernhard Eisel was upset with his team management after the stage yesterday. "I had envisioned it otherwise," said Eisel. "On Friday my team director assured me again, that the team would ride for me today. But before the start Madiot suddenly changed his mind and switched over to Baden Cooke. I'll see what happens tomorrow. It's not a question of who is captain, our team manager is destroying the entire team structure. The finale today was so turbulent, no one could keep track of what was happening. Will they ride now for Cooke or for me? I can only hope that the situation will change in the next few days. Madiot must decide for one of us and inform everybody of his decision. As it is, we are all hanging in the air."
