Computer Sciences Corporation - Continued Support for Cycling
CSC Inc. Confirms continued support and involvement with the sport of cycling and sponsorship of Team CSC.

Title Sponsor of #1 Ranked Team CSC Reaffirms its Commitment to Clean Sport
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 20 – Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced that, after careful consideration, the company has decided to continue its involvement in the sport of cycling and its sponsorship of top-ranked Team CSC.

“Needless to say, we are deeply disappointed by Bjarne Riis’ recent admission of past doping,” said Henrik Bo Pedersen, the CSC executive responsible for overseeing the sponsorship. “While we remain steadfast in our condemnation of doping, we accept Bjarne’s apologies and believe that his candor – and his commitment to cleaning up the sport – represents a potential turning point for cycling. We have therefore concluded that we will continue our sponsorship.

“An important factor in our decision is Team CSC’s groundbreaking anti-doping program, which has become a model for clean sports in general. Bjarne has been instrumental in establishing the program, and we believe his continued leadership in Team CSC and the sport is critical to ongoing efforts to clean up cycling. Indeed, we strongly encourage all of the ProTour teams to implement anti-doping programs similar to the one in place at Team CSC.”
