Voigt tries to carry on as RadioShack's future seems in doubt

Jens Voigt attacks, Tour de France 2012, stage eight

RadioShack-Nissan found itself caught in the middle of a hurricane overnight on the Tour de France's second rest day in Pau. Its star cyclist, Fränk Schleck, returned an adverse analytical finding for xipamide, a diuretic drug.

"We were like shocked and surprised by the news," Jens Voigt said when asked by Cycling Weekly at the start today. "We heard about it around 8:30pm yesterday at the dinner table. We had this moment of silence. We just tried to digest the news. Start to think about what it means, what the consequences are and how we keep going in this situation. As you can imagine, it's pretty difficult."
