I tried this last year and...failed pretty miserably I never did go back and check, partly because I didn't really want to know ;\ But let's give it a shot again this year, why not. Tell me where I'm way off



Team Saxo Bank-SunGard:

1. Alberto Contador (even this might be wrong)
2. Jesus Hernandez
3. Benjamin Noval
4. Daniel Navarro
5. Gustav Larsson
6. Brian Vandborg
7. Volodymir Gustov
8. Nicki Sorensen
9. Matteo Tosatto

(Richie Porte and Chris Anker Sorensen are both concentrating on the Giro)

Leopard Trek:

11. Andy Schleck
12. Frank Schleck
13. Fabian Cancellara
14. Jens Voigt
15. Stuart O'Grady
16. Linus Gerdemann
17. Jakob Fuglsang
18. Brice Feillu
19. Tom Stamsnijder

Rabobank:

34. Ruben Perez
35. Ivan Velasco
36. Gorka Verdugo
37. Egoi Martinez
38. Koldo Fernandez
39. Amets Txurruka

(really, this team is Sammy Sanchez, Igor Anton, and 21 other guys. Some will go to the Giro and the Vuelta with Anton, some will come to the Tour with Sanchez. Lots of interchangeable parts)

Omega Pharma-Lotto:

41. Jurgen Van Den Broeck
42. Andre Greipel
43. Jussi Veikkanen
44. Oscar Pujol
45. Sebastian Lang
46. Frederik Willems
47. Mario Aerts

75. Alessandro Vanotti
76. Fabio Sabatini

Wow, that surprises me (and obviously I missed it). He's got to want to ride the Vuelta again as well, to try for a KOM 4-peat, but doing the double might be tough.

I see your article casts doubt on that. Doubly surprising.
