Kelme has always done more with less money than any other team around, but looks like its finally catching up to them.

Also, Telekom has decided to throw all its cards in behind Zabel. Fagnini is back in. I'm still thinking this could be the year kevin Livingston gets to shine for himself in the mountains.

Vibes, vibes, vibes.

I was really impressed by Phonak in the Giro this year. They were aggressive, highly visible and rode some really cool bikes. With Sevilla, they could be instant elite... when are the Vuelta teams announced!?!

Yeah i saw those bikes at cyclingnews. Wicked cool styling. Probabaly the most unique bikes I've seen in the pros for a long time.

then there would be a lot, I mean a lot, of Americans going for gold in France! Incidentally, all out of USPS. I assume Tyler is going, right?
Tyler is confirmed.Sintesi

Velonews has an article for him. Bjarne Riis has him recuperating his shoulder and slowly building back up his form. Tyler is expected to ride himself into full fitness during the first week of TdF. He says Carlos Sastre and Tyler are free to climb as high into the GC as they can manage. Jalabert will be riding the same type of race as last year. I think the best thing Riis is saying is, "all pressure off" of Hamilton. Basically anything he can get here will be gravy which is about as good of conditions as Tyler could have hoped.

Who knows how this will pan out, but we definitely got some talented American free agents in the mix. This could be a far more exciting race than a lot of people think.
