Cancellara's win lifts morale in RadioShack-Nissan team

RadioShack-Nissan-Trek, Tour de France 2012 presentation

Fabian Cancellara scored a much needed win for RadioShack-Nissan on Saturday by winning the Tour de France prologue and yellow jersey in Liège, Belgium. Cancellara bounced back from a fractured collarbone in April to win in the same place where he won eight years ago, in 2004.

Cancellara's win boosted morale within the team, which starts the race without star Andy Schleck and General Manager Johan Bruyneel, who's being charged in a US doping investigation.
