Team CSC still in the hunt

Team CSC was also well represented in the Stage 2 finishing group, with David Zabriskie, Bobby Julich and Christian Vande Velde all in the cut. All are in the top 10 going into tomorrow's time trial, with Julich the best placed in third at nine seconds.

"The stage could have turned out differently had Zabriskie been able to bridge up on his own," said team manager Bjarne Riis on "But when he didn't, we did everything we could in order to catch the Leipheimer group and bring the first peloton back together again. The team did a tremendous job, and we managed to turn things around. This means we still have the opportunity to decide the race in tomorrow's time trial."
