Jakob Piil withdraws from Tour

Yahoo! Sport | Piil pulls out of Tour

CSC's Jakob Piil, who spent seemingly the entire first week of the 2004 Tour in a breakaway, has withdrawn from the race complaining of a knee problem.

The Dane had to be a favorite for the Tour's newest competition, for the overall most aggressive rider in the race.

Piil is the first withdrawal by a CSC rider, leaving Ivan Basso 7 teammates. Still riding with a full slate are US Postal, Quick Step-Davitamon, and Rabobank.
