Fuglsang slams Bruyneel's management style

Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) has told Cyclingnews that the Tour de France will be his major objective and that he is looking forward to putting a difficult 2012 season behind him. The Dane, 27, rode for RadioShack last season but found himself on the sidelines after his relationship with former boss Johan Bruyneel fell apart. Sidelined from the Giro despite early indication that he would lead the team, Fuglsang was then benched for the majority of the season after Bruyneel discovered he was planning on leaving.
