Gusev a force in Spring

After making the top 10 in last Sunday's Brabantse Pijl, followed by a fourth place in Paris-Camembert on Tuesday, Team CSC's Vladimir Gusev has shown excellent form heading into April's Spring Classics.

"There were several attacks towards the end, but no one was able to catch [Laurent] Brochard," said sports director Alain Gallopin on the team's website,, following the race from Magnanville to Vimoutiers. "Gusev is really on form, and it looks as if he could peak for the cobblestone classics. Last year, he got some experience in riding the big one-day races, and I believe this year it's possible for him to be among the very best."
