PIC BY TDWSPORT.COM Italian Classics specialist Fabrizio Guidi has left CSC to join the Phonak team, who were recently confirmed as late ProTour entrants. In a statement on the CSC website, team manager Bjarne Riis said: "Fabrizio had a clause in his contract, which made it possible for him to sign with another team, should he receive a better offer. "It is not possible for us to match the offer from Phonak, so we have to let him go. Fabrizio has worked very hard for our team, and we would have liked to keep him, but it was not possible. We wish him all the best and good luck with his new team." - American Fred Rodriguez has made a good start to the season with his new Davitamon-Lotto team by taking the opening stage at the GP Internacional Costa Azul in Portugal.
