Nothing major for CSC

Team CSC weren't expecting too much at the Dauphiné Libéré opener in Aix-les-Bains yesterday, so when their best rider Nicki Sørensen turned in a time good enough for 24th place, they weren't all that surprised.

"We weren't expecting anything major, but managed some OK times," said directeur sportif Alain Gallopin on "Our primary goal with this race is to shape up for the Tour [de France], but hopefully we'll get a chance to make some results in a stage or two after the prologue."
