Arvesen to CSC
The Danes were setting the tone in this years 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 years Tour de France, Thor Hushovd and Arvesen. Knut Asle Arvesen will be on the same team as Jens Voigt, Hushovds former team mate who is leaving Credit Agricole this fall.
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.
