Wouldn't that put them over the maximum number of riders? It's a pretty big country...

High Road certainly has a good shot at some of the sprints. With Boonen and Bennati out, Cavendish will only have to worry about McEwen (who hasn't been doing great this season) and a few others. But my USCF team has the same chances of winning the overall.
