Hi, does anyone know where I can find a rider list for the Tour? I know which teams are in, but cannot find a comprehensive list of which riders are in. Is Boogerd scheduled to ride? Tchmil? Steels? Tafi? Garzelli? Rebellin? Olano? Osa? O'Grady? Beltran? Rous? Zanini? Dekker? Is the Mapei team going to bring their 9 heavies or leave a couple biggies to take on other races?

Just wonderin'. Thanks!

Teams generally don't announce who exactly will ride the Tour until the days before the race- and even then, nothing's final. Usually a team will have 12 people with the TdF on their yearly "program" and then choose the nine who actually go in the weeks leading up to the event, when they can better assess form.

Check out cycling4all.com
Probably the most timely listing. Most teams have not picked their riders yet, so the lists can be either extensive or non-existant. But this site will update it daily, as info. becomes available.

Thanks so much! I guess I'll just have to keep my own list as announcements are made. I'll check out cycling4all daily as well.
