Tour de Georgia teams are now listed.

Yesterday I checked the TdG web site and they still had the 2005 page under "The Teams" link. Today they have added a list of the teams that will be participating. Rosters for each team are still not listed, just links to each team's web site. Perhaps some of the teams have listed on their own web sites who they will be sending to Georgia.

The teams participating look pretty comparable to last year. However, it will be interesting to see whether the team rosters drop off in quality compared to last year.

Should be a great matchup: Boonen and his raw power vs. Landis and his unique TT position.

Man, I wish I could go. I would have to borrow a car, and crash on my friends couch.


Would be so much fun!

Other people seem to find a way. Very few of them are staying at the Hyatt.

Imagine sleeping in a tent on Brasstown Bald. You wake up in the morning and there's a hundred thousand other people partying all day until the peleton arrives.

Now my understanding is, sadly enough, that American races are good clean boring fun, as compared to bawdy European races. I have heard from friends who have traveled to watch races that the TdG is health-nazi land, and no fun compared to camping/partying at the Vuelta or Giro, or the Pyrnees stages of the TdF.

Preach the truth there brother tekhna! Hold a bike race in the Bible Belt and see what you get.
