Steensen, Vandborg and Gustov out of Saxo Bank-Sungard

Andre Steensen, Brian Vandborg and Volodymir Gustov are the latest riders to leave Saxo Bank-Sungard, after not being offered new contracts. Team manager Bjarne Riis has publicly said that he is having budget problems and does not plan to hire any additional riders, although Alberto Contador has asked for more help in the mountains. However, he may be looking to use the money saved from those three riders to make one or more new hires.
