Team Discovery's Tour of California Roster

Although unofficial, I've gone ahead and posted the Team Discovery ToC roster:

Levi Leipheimer
George Hincapie
Ivan Basso
Tom Danielson
Jason McCartney
Thomas Vaitkus
Tony Cruz
Brian Vandborg

(source: two of the riders listed above)

I think one can safely assume Levi is going to be the GC man in his home state. Anyone else have scoop on the other rosters?

update: The Discovery roster is now official. Also, more rosters now posted - http://www.steephill.tv/2007/tour-of...ornia/#rosters

Thanks for the update.

Do you know anything about an alternate route for Stage 1 since Hwy 1 is closed between Muir Beach and Stinson Beach? That should add another nice climb up to Pan Toll via the Panoramic Hwy detour.

I'm hoping to ride most of stages 1 & 3, leaving well before the racers and stopping at the top of a climb to watch, then heading to the finish after they go by.

I've heard mixed stories on the construction progress. I would bet the alternate route will be used.

Don't forget your camera because I've gone ahead and penciled you as stage 1 and 3 KOM correspondent for the 2007 Tour of California Grassy Knoll Project!

Well, I would guess that CSC's American boys Vandevelde, "Z" and Julich will be riding. And, of course, Haedo, after his success last year.

Why is Tony Cruz listed as "Antonio "Tony" Cruz", and Tom Danielson just "Tom Danielson", and not "Thomas "Tom" Danielson"?

I think Basso is just there to get him racing again. He did an interview with Cycling news and said that he isn't in the shape needed to vie for the win and will be using the race to get back to racing and to support his team.

Sounds good, I have a compact picture camera that takes decent video. I'll be sure to send you my footage.

He is often listed as Antonio. My guess is he requested Antonio due to the large Hispanic heritage in this state and they put Tony so the rest of us know WTF they're talking about.
