Teams for Le Tour 2011

tour-guide-cover

With the 98th Tour de France due to start on 2 July, the 22 teams are starting to name their nine-man selections. In the Australian edition of the Official Tour de France Guide we list every rider on the rosters of those squads that have been invited to the race in 2011 and, as the line-ups are confirmed, we will update this page so you know who to follow on the road from the Passage du Gois to Paris this July.
We will not be perpetuating any gossip or rumours, rather only posting the names that have been issued in formal team releases at the end of June.
Make sure you have your copy of the Official Tour Guide, the perfect SBS Television viewing companion. It’s on sale nationally but can also be ordered on the RIDE Media site by clicking here.

COMMENTARY: Alas, this selection is based on chasing a good GC result and considering there are two former podium finishers in a formidable line-up, it makes sense that the last-minute Australian recruit Robbie McEwen didn’t earn a place… but it’s a shame. The winner of 12 Tour de France stages has declared that he expects to race again in 2012, so there’s still chance of another appearance from the veteran who has already got 12 Tour starts to his name.

CONFIRMED:
71. Janez Brajkovic (SLO)
