Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen, the founders of Saxo Bank, praised Team CSC Saxo Bank at yesterday’s crowning of King Carlos.
“Watching Carlos Sastre in the yellow jersey and Andy Schleck in the white, side by side, armed with nothing but moral fibre and muscles, was amazing,” said Fournais.
“We are not only celebrating Team CSC Saxo Bank, I truly believe their victory is triumph for the entire cycling industry.”
Christensen went further:
“It is a lot like entering the financial markets. Now is a good time and if cycling stocks were available on the stock exchange, we would be the first ones to buy. We simply wanted to be a part of the future bull market of cycling. It is safe to say today that we made the right decision.”
Saxo Bank’s co-sponsorship runs to the end of this year, and on 1 January 2009 Saxo Bank becomes the sole main sponsor of the team that, from then on, will be known as Team Saxo Bank.
