Roland Rat said:Can't see anyone's mentioned this: Andy Schleck has won the Luxembourg TT champs ahead of Frank. Only 4 competitors.
B.Rasmussen said:Team Saxo Bank has fired Kim Andersen.
In a telephone from Luxembourg confirms Kim Andersen that cooperation with Saxo Bank is terminated, but he will not call it a firing.
I've had some wonderful years and have learned a mass and had a good position. And it's a big leap to say farewell to the team but I've got a chance you only get once in life and I have to take, "says Andersen.
The chance Kim Anderson talking about is, according to the protagonist himself the opportunity to start a whole new ProTour team, the former sports director of Saxo Bank now start up Saxo Bank's former press adviser Brian Nygaard.
- We will work on a new project here in Luxembourg - It's me and Brian Nygaard, who is working on a ProTour team, but it is new and we have a lot to see, so when we have something more specific so we report it out, says Andersen.
EDIT: Story was moved to their tour section

Cerberus said:Yes it does lend credence to the Team Schleck rumours. It also bodes ill for Team Saxo Banks sponsor search. It doesn't prove anything, but it could be a case of rats leaving the sinking ship. I hope it's not, but..
Publicus said:How does this affect the relationship with the Schlecks and Riis going into the Tour? This can't possibly be a good thing.
Christian said:yes indeed that doesn't look so good. Too bad they couldn't wait for after the Tour. We'll see how Bjarne takes it ... he made the Schlecks and now they turn their back on him ...
