CSC angry in Bayern

Team CSC Directeur Sportif Kim Andersen was not happy with the course for the finale in Friday's third stage of the Bayern Rundfahrt, threatening not to return to the race in the future. A crash just a few hundred meters before the finish line took down CSC sprinter Stuart O'Grady, among others.

"That finish was completely irresponsible and I've gotta say, that if something like that ever happens again we won't be participating. It was bordering on the insane," Andersen said on the team's website, team-csc.com "There was a dangerous descent and at the bottom there was a cobble stoned bit just before the finish line. I dare not think what would've happened if it'd been raining out there today,"

"Stuart was fourth or fifth ahead of the cobble stones so it was starting to look good for us before the crash. Luckily he didn't hurt himself badly though," said Andersen.
