CSC's Jakob Piil was one of three riders abandoning the Dauphiné Libéré yesterday, along with Kanstantsin Siutsou (Fassa Bortolo) and Nicola Loda (Liquigas-Bianchi). Piil has a respiratory infection, according to the team.

"Jakob wasn't 100 percent yesterday, and today was no better, said CSC directeur sportif. "He's been complaining about respiration problems on top of a nasty bronchitis, and it didn't make any sense to for him to carry on. He fought hard to hang on, but unfortunately he had to give up eventually."
