Default Tour of California - Training Only

http://www.racereports.procyclingpre...interview.html

What is your goal for the Tour of California?

FC: Training. I want to do miles and spend more hours on the bike. My
condition is surely not the best, and I wont go to the limit at all
times to show some results. I will be here to help the team as much as I
can, but its not the World Championships or a ProTour race though I
hope it will become one! They have the wide roads, good organizing and
the people on the road more than in some European races!



Thanks,

Magilla

Yes, Cancellara said he mostly wants to train and help the team. He
was looking forward to the prologue in the rain bow colors.

But as the press conf indicates (http://www.procyclingpress.com/
racereports/tofcali07/tofcali07-cscpressconfreport.html), CSC as a
team does take it more serious than just a training race. Just not as
high a priority as Discovery.

Those days of multi-million dollar sponsorships for a U.S. sponsored
Euro team are gone now that Lance is retired.


The current roster Discovery has lacks gravitas.


Thanks,

Do you mean Gravlax? They certainly don't look it.
