I hope Andy's form is really improving. Older brother may have gifted Andy the win to build confidence. And with Kirchen out, how many competitors in Luxembourg? Two? :)

More than Liechtenstein :)

The only real question in this race was which Schleck brother would take the title, and younger bother Andy had the upper hand. He beat older brother and Saxo Bank teammate Fränk by 56 seconds. Christian Poos (Continental Team Differdange) was third at 1:43.

“I must say, that I had sort of aimed at winning the individual time trial,” Andy Schleck told the Luxembourger website Tageblatt.lu. “It really hurt and I wanted to use it as a little test for the Tour de France.”

There were only four riders in the race, and Ben Gastauer of AG2R) was the unlucky one to miss out on the podium, finishing 3:10 back.

This is hardly a test as quoted by Andy Schleck....

“I must say, that I had sort of aimed at winning the individual time trial,” Andy Schleck told the Luxembourger website Tageblatt.lu. “It really hurt and I wanted to use it as a little test for the Tour de France.”

I am sure Andy will find out in this years Tour real fast how he stacks up against the other ITT riders.
