Sprinters foil CSC's plans in Germany

On yesterday's second stage of the Bayern Rundfahrt in Germany, Team CSC attempted to split the bunch near the end, but unfortunately for them, the sprinter's teams were too attentive, leading to another sprint finish, this time won by Jean-Patrick Nazon (AG2r Prévoyance).

"Again we tried to split the peloton with an attack from Linus [Gerdemann] and Jens [Voigt] on a climb shortly before finish, but even though a group of 15 riders escaped, they never managed to gain more than a 10 seconds advantage," said directeur sportif Kim Andersen on the team's website, "[Jakob] Piil was feeling better today but is still not 100 percent."

Voigt and Luke Roberts are still the team's two best-placed riders, less than 15 seconds off the race lead of Sebastian Siedler (Wiesenhof).
