CSC has three new National Champions

On Friday, June 24, Team CSC riders won three national time trial championships between them: Michael Blaudzun led home a CSC whitewash in Denmark (four CSC starters took the top four places), Vladimir Gussev in Russia, and Andy Schleck in Luxembourg. Jens Voigt took the bronze medal at the German championships, while Kurt-Asle Arvesen earlier this week won a silver medal at the Norwegian time trial championships.

Blaudzun described himself as "relieved and happy" with his win in Denmark, telling team website, "I didn't really feel like things were working out for me, but I managed to win after all. The form from the Giro hasn't failed me, and this victory comes after a season, which up until now has been really great for me. I've felt on top all spring, and it's been like I've had an extra gear the whole time. And of course it's always nice, when it pays off - even on a day where you don't feel like it's going to."
