Thumbs up for CSC and T Mobile

Great teams. Each had a superstar contender that was ejected at the start of the Tour. Each now has another contender and both teams looked strong in the Alps. Impressive. Discovery, on the other hand, appears to be finished. No Lance, no Discovery team, I'm afraid.

They would be great aside from having their superstars/captains removed for doping and if that iwasnt an indication of how the rest of their team is.

Your probaly right about dico, I dont think they will keep alot of the sponsors without a big showing at the TDF no matter how many other races they do well in.

Yes, a big thumbs up to both of them. Also to Rabobank. AG2R gets the most improved award.

Or Iles Baleares. They have the yellow jersey at the moment. I doubt anybody rated them as serious contenders at the start of the Tour.

Though Valverde was seen as a possible winner.

Yes, of course. I guess I should put them in the thumbs up category with CSC and T Mobile.
