Sponsored by California-based CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation), Team CSC brings one of the world's strongest teams to the 2008 Tour de Georgia. As the UCI ProTour Team Champions for the last three years, Team CSC continues to dominate the race scene with top cyclists like Fabian Cancellara (SUI), Jens Voigt (GER), Stuart O'Grady (AUS), Carlos Sastre (ESP), Fränk and Andy Schleck (LUX), Bobby Julich (USA), and Juan José Haedo (ARG). Last season Team CSC won the teams classification in the Tour of California and had two stage wins during the Tour de France, with Sastre finishing fourth and Cancellara enjoying seven days in the yellow jersey. Sastre moved on to finish second overall in Vuelta a España later in the year, while Cancellara won the World Championship time trial for the second year in a row. Alexandr Kolobnev (RUS) and Fränk Schleck furthermore finished second and fourth in the world championship road race.

The squad has continued their winning habits thus far in 2008. With Cancellara and Haedo on the team, Team CSC will be looking for time trial and stage wins on the way to taking the overall team classification in Georgia.
