Team CSC's Carlos Sastre finished seventh in Saturday's final stage of the Tour of Basque Country. The tough 24 km time trial was won by José Angel Gomez Marchante (Saunier Duval), who also took the overall victory in the race.
"After Fränk Schleck's exit due to his crash, we no longer had the possibility of making a good overall result," said DS Kim Andersen on team-csc.com. "Still we tried to put our mark on the race. Jens Voigt was beaten by half a wheel yesterday and today Sastre did a very good time trial, so we can definitely take something positive with us for the upcoming classics in the Ardennes."
