VeloNews.com | Cancellara takes his best shot and wins Cataluyna kickoff

CSC is firing on all cylinders. Their Fabian Cancellara took the first stage in the Tour of Catalonia today. Echoing his prologue win in the 2004 Tour de France, Cancellara finished the 12.5-km time trial in 14:55, 3 seconds faster than Illes Balears' Vladimir Karpets, Discovery Channel's Janez Brajkovic, and Phonak's Robbie Hunter.

Cancellara told VeloNews his personal ambition at the 2006 Tour is another prologue win:

"My entire Tour will be less than 10km. After that, I will do my all to help Ivan win," Cancellara said. "After that, I still have goals. I'd like to win the world (time trial) title in Austria."

Christian Vandevelde was 8th on the day, Levi Leipheimer 13th, and Cadel Evans 20th.
