Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears disappointed with TTT

While most teams were either happy or at least satisfied with their performances in yesterday's team time trial, Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears had hoped for more. Team director Eusebio Unzue commented before the start of stage 6 today that, "It is a fact that we were not up to what we hoped to achieve. We did not expect to finish more than thirty or forty seconds behind teams like CSC or T-Mobile. But it would be stupid to dramatise the situation. Things like that happen in a speciality like the time trial (individual or not). Nobody is sheltered from a bad surprise. I just hope that our substandard performance will be nothing else than an anecdotal one, but at the same time it is a pity because we have not many occasions during the season to take part in such a race and show what we are really able to do."
