I'm just curious to know if any of the Pro's still ride steel frames.

Am I to assume that since there have been no responses in two days to my question that:
1)There are no pro's riding steel anymore
2)For once I have stumped this group and nobody knows the answer!:)

What pros are you talking about?
I can't think of any D1, 2 or 3 teams that ride steel.
XC- RLX rides the Ti pisgah, can't think of any steel.
CX-can't think of any but some teams/pros may ride steel.

CSC-Tiscali just names Cervelo as their bike sponsor for 2003. Cervelo will supply the team with aluminum soloist bikes and the steel Prodigy model. Looks like some pros will be back on steel. Here's (http://vn1.velonews.com/tech/report/articles/3136.0.html) an article from Velonews.
As for cyclocross... you can be pretty sure the Richard Sachs team rides steel...

The Linda McCartney Team rode Reynolds 853 a couple of years ago (1997) when I saw them ride in London.

I guess I should have been more specific with my question as to which pros I was talking about. I was thinking of the pro road teams like in the TdF etc...
Thanks for the answers so far.

Telecom rides steel for some of the spring classics.
Try these links;
I think all of the Lemond bikes (except some Ti models) are steel, so I imagine some of their riders are using them.
