Sastre leaves CSC-Saxo Bank

Team CSC-Saxo Bank is announcing on their website that after seven years, reigning Tour de France Champion Carlos Sastre will be leaving the team when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Carlos Sastre has been one of the most prominent profiles in the big stage races for a number of seasons culminating with his victory this year in the greatest of them all: Tour de France.

The Tour victory was the most important triumph in the team history and it is with great mutual respect and understanding that Sastre now announces his transfer to the newly formed Cervélo Test Team from next season.

With a strong, young stage racing team, CSC- Saxo Bank could not guarantee Sastre the leadership role in 2009.  According to individuals on the team, the split is very amicable.

    Hey Jim, are the rumors true? Is Lance coming out of retirement to race for free with Astana? Will he be fetching water for Contador or the other way around? What is he, bored, or an egomaniac?
