"A month to remember" for CSC

March was "a month to remember" for Team CSC, with nine victories, including some of the biggest races of the month. And it was all due to the team's extended training camps, it says.

"Yeah, it's been a great month for us. We got off to a late start compared to some of the other teams, because we thought the training camps were more important and our results in March just go to prove that we had our priorities right," said sports director Kim Anderson on the team's website, team-csc.com. "But we do have a strong team and – knock on wood – haven't had any serious accidents or injuries so far."

Fabian Cancellara echoed those sentiments, saying "I've got no doubts that it's our training camps – especially the one in the States – which have made all the difference. I hadn't expected to win Tirreno, but it was still Milano-Sanremo which meant the most for me."

Along the way to overall victory in Tirreno, he also won the stage 5 time trial, as well as the Monte Paschi Eroica.

The past weekend was especially successful for the team, as Kurt-Asle Arvesen took the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen and Jens Voigt won his fourth Critérium International. But those weren't the only successes of the team in March. Sprinter Juan Jose Haedo won the Clasica de Almeria and a stage in the Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia, while Karsten Kroon took the second stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y León.
