Arvesen to CSC

Knut Asle Arvesen, the Norwegian bicyle pro, has decided to ride for the Danish team CSC Tiscali the next two seasons.

The Danes were setting the tone in this year’s Tour de France, and they won, among other things, the team competition.

Arvesen is leaving Team Fakta - another Danish bicycle team.

In other words, there will most likely be two Norwegians participating in next year’s Tour de France, Thor Hushovd and Arvesen. Knut Asle Arvesen will be on the same team as Jens Voigt, Hushovd’s former team mate who is leaving Credit Agricole this fall.

Several offers

Arvesen has received several offers from the major teams Quick Step, Rabobank and Credit Agricole, but he decided to stay in Denmark.

“I decided on CSC because I wanted to continue in the same environment. It is a more international team than Team Fakta, but it still has the Danish mentality,” said Arvesen.

Bjarne Riis, a former Tour de France winner, is the sport director for the CSC team.
