Team CSC enjoyed a huge weekend of success, with victory in Paris-Roubaix and the Klasika Primavera, held in Spain over the weekend. Local boy Carlos Sastre took the win after he joined a small escape group when the peloton split on the race's most difficult climb. He attacked again and beat Lampre's Damiano Cunego in a sprint finish.
"It was really nice to win a race again," said Sastre. "Yesterday's time trial was a perfect test for me, and I was very motivated to try something today. Lampre controlled most of the race, but in the final only a few riders were able to keep up. I attacked a couple of times on the last climb in order to split the front group and then I attacked again just before the finish," he explained.
Sastre explained that the victory is a product of some very hard work in the off-season and early in 2006, something that bodes well heading into the season of grand tours. "When I was reeled in, I saved my strength for the sprint and I just managed to snatch the victory on the line. I've been working very hard to get into shape, so it's a big thing to be able to take a good result, and obviously it gives me motivation for the upcoming races," said a happy Sastre following the win.
