Armstrong to race post-Tour criteriums; Voigt stays with CSC
Traditionally, Tour riders can pad their pocketbooks by racing in criteriums around Europe, and demanding an appearance fee from the race sponsors.
Lance Armstrong will participate in two such races this week, in the Netherlands and in the Czech Republic. Armstrong's appearance fee is reportedly 110,000 euros.
Also, Jens Voigt has extended his CSC contract for another 2 years. The post-Tour period is traditionally a very active one for rider contract signings.
One signing I won't be expecting is Michele Bartoli re-upping with CSC.
