Well,
I have to admit that I was one of the ones before le Tour that was in disbelief when I saw the omission of Cipo, Pantani, et al. He has largely been exhonorated (sp?) just in the first week. This has been the most exciting first week I can remember. One team is making LeBlanc eat crow though IMO. They are...drum roll please...BIG MAT. They are last in the team classification by 15 minutes over 20th place Lampre. Their highest place GC guy is Heulot who's a whopping 33rd at 45'51". Highest points: Sivakov who's -111 points to O'Grady. Best climber: no one in the top 63.

I think anyone of the teams who got snubbed would have better results in every category. Seaco, Mercatone Uno, Mercury, Coast... Sheesh.
