especially wish to thank each member of Riis Cycling for their dedication and commitment to making professional cycling a
healthy and safe sport."

this season we can look back upon eight years that have been very fruitful for both partners. CSC has made it possible for
us to reach the highest heights in professional cycling and at the same time we have inspired their 91,000 employees and helped
them to develop their client relationships in a very unique way. We're very proud of all we've done together in the past and
look forward to sharing a lot of great experiences with CSC this season," says Bjarne Riis.
"This marks the beginning
of something new for us and I know that we are ready to go out and show the world that we are here to stay. We have an exceptional
product with worldwide exposure that we can offer to a new sponsor. We believe we have the best team in the world, both the
riders on their bikes and the staff supporting them behind the scenes. Over the years, this exceptional group of people have
proven that they know how to deliver value to their sponsors. I'm optimistic about the future, even though cycling has its
challenges. We have a team that is a ready to lead the way and an organisation that is up for the task at hand," Bjarne Riis
