A bit of a surprise to not see Bobby Julich making the CSC team for the TdF.
I really can't argue with whom they did choose- Sastre, Schleck, Voigt,
Stuey, Cancellara, Vande Velde, Zabriskie... and Arvesen, OK, he's been
riding strong lately, but Cuesta? I did a double-take on his age... 38 years
old?

They must really want to win the ITTs, sending both Zabriskie and
Cancellara...

I was expecting Schleck, Schleck[2], Schleck[3], Schleck[4], Schleck[5],
Voigt[1], Cancellara, Sastre and the Ghost of Basso Past.

and Arvesen, OK, he's been riding strong lately,


Hey, they're a Scandinavian team, they have to include at least one
Scandinavian in the line-up for the papers back home, even if they don't
expect him to actually do anything. A bit like Discovery and Americans.

[1] Tradition! Has CSC ever ridden le Tour without Voigt?
[2] Frank
[3] Surely there must be some other brothers?
[4] Well, if not, couldn't they adopt?
[5] Daughters can cross-dress, you know!

Good riddance, Julich has been living on his 1998 TDF podium (the
doper's tour) ever since other than his rebirth of sorts when he
joined the ranks of CSC, hum...

or the TdF.

Yeah, that little 'first American to win Paris-Nice' thing... That
was just resting on his Tour podium laurels, huh?

It always used to be anyway - apart from the year or couple of years
when it went on to Rome and was Parigi-Nizza-Roma

And nobody gave a damn who won and even if you did, it was certainly
nothing to brag about
