"Different American" credits the team

Bobby Julich's victory in Paris-Nice on Sunday has been widely reported by the mainstream media, with a strong slant of 'American who isn't Lance Armstrong wins race'. The St Petersburg Times described him as a "different American" but Julich himself has been quick to bounce credit along to his CSC team, which, he said, "work[ed] the same way for me as I did for Vino and Jörg."

"Only at CSC did I have the impression that people trusted me and the pleasure returned," Julich told Reuters. "I really want to tell everybody how important the team is to me. We train and work together and it's a great motivation to be in a race knowing everybody around you has the same goals. This team has allowed me to regain my confidence."
