Team CSC's Giro line-up ready

Team CSC has chosen the line-up for this year's edition of Giro d'Italia. "It's kind of a mixed team we've chosen," commented team manager Bjarne Riis. "There's both guys who are going for the overall result as well as several who are able to go for the individual stages and we're also hoping to do well in the team time trial."

The line-up for Team CSC is as follows: Gustav Larsson, Chris Anker Sørensen, Jens Voigt, Stuart O'Grady, Bradley McGee, Anders Lund, Michael Blaudzun, Jason McCartney and Nicki Sørensen.

"Gustav and Chris will be trying for the overall result and we're quite excited about that of course," added Riis. "At the same time, Chris will have the chance to go for the white Youth Jersey, which Andy Schleck won last year. We also have a Grand Tour debutant with us in Anders Lund, who's done well and it'll also be interesting to see how he does under pressure.

"Jens and Stuart are there to build up their form towards Tour de France after they've both taken a break recently, but we know both of them well enough to know that they're able to win a stage or two at any given time. But that goes for everyone in the line-up - we'll be going for stage wins as soon as the opportunity comes along," he concluded.
