Let's see, Lotto-Domo had "nothing to ride for" so came in last in the TTT 5 minutes back, haven't done a thing to liven up this year's Tour other than launch a whining, winless, and boorish Robbie McEwen towards the line a few times. For this LeBlanc excluded the World Champion ?

in Lotto. They were an ultimatic selection probably from being one of the top-10 teams in the world. Plus McEwen did win the Green jersey last year, so even if he whines too much, he should be invited back.
McEwen never should have been in Paris last year...GreenFan

Considering the facts that he was involved in a couple of questionable sprints (more of which should have been protested) and more importantly that he was "pardoned" for coming in well past the time cut in one of the mountain stages with about 20 others in "the laughing group" (which incidentally did NOT contain Zabel). Just my opinion, but considering his mouthy words last year, and his seamless continuation of more of the same this year...I would be alot happier to see Mario.
