|I think it's the usual suspects plus Quaranta's team Alexia. USPS, Saturn, Navigators, 7-UP, Mercury, Prime Alliance, etc... All the US Pro teams. I haven't seen a list either tho.|

|like it is for most of the European post-tour crits? Saw the sports guy on CNN this morning talking about it and saying he thought Armstrong would clean house. I gotta figure, that all these Div. 2 pros are going to ride this like a real race and that Armstrong doesn't have a shot in hell.|

|He usually drops out doesn't he? I agree with you.|

|I don't expect LA to finish (maybe he will, it's a damn flat course), just tip his cap, sign some autographs and take in some laps. I think his website says he's racing a crit in Europe on Saturday the third and flying into NY to race again Sunday the fourth. Don't know how competitive one can feel on a schedule like that.
Just hope I can get close enough to have him sign my cap again. : )
Also No George. That's a bummer.

|I think Lance can handle it. He won't win, because there are real crit specialists in the race, but I doubt he'll drop out. He has teammates, for one thing. He could play a bluff, where everyone concentrates on him, and the whole time he is setting up a teammate.
Also, he's racing a two-man time trial with Floyd Landis on the 3rd, not a crit. He'll probably take a nice private jet to NY, so he should arrive relaxed and rested.
