    I see Thomas De Gendt is down to ride for Vacansoleil – I hope this is correct as he was very entertaining two years ago for Topsport. I’m hoping Cav can attract big crowds to the race and hopefully a better showing from Team Sky this year now they’re more experienced and will keep their options open. I’d like to see Bibby make the top ten or at least impress in a couple of stages to get that move to a bigger team that he deserves and Rapha could do better this year after some successful stage races.

    What a fantastic lineup! A pity SaxoBank weren’t invited, though. Richie Porte was superb in last year’s race, and I had hoped to see him again!

  • Phil Riley

    I see the HTC team is still to be confirmed. Maybe we might be treated to seeing Mark Cavendish winning more sprints in this country.
