CSC denies money problems

By Susan Westemeyer

The CSC team has denied rumours that it is running out of money. A story carried on Belgian teletext, credited to daily paper Het Nieuwsblad, alleged that the team's riders would receive only half of their usual salary until the end of March. According to the report, riders were free to leave if they could find a better deal, but those who remained had all agreed.

Contacted for a comment, CSC spokesman Brian Nygaard said, "I can deny the rumours completely. They have absolutely no basis in reality. I have contacted the journalist and he will write a denouncement for his paper tomorrow."
