    Continuing in the spirit of attempting to discuss racing here on the forum, here we go:

    France:
    Sylvain Chavanel
    Stephane Auge
    Amael Moinard
    Pierrick Fedrigo
    Thomas Voeckler
    Sandy Casar
    Benoit Vaugrenard
    Romain Feillu
    Ludovic Turpin

    Interesting that Moreau has not been included in the team, due to his 'lack of form'. Anyone know more about this?

    Australia:
    Allan Davis
    Simon Gerrans
    Mathew Hayman
    Matt Lloyd
    Trent Lowe
    Michael Rogers
    William Walker
    Cadel Evans
    Bradley McGee



    McEwen is the missing one here.

    P.S. This information is all from the Gazzetta dello Sport

    How is Evans going to swing his leg over the top tube at the world's? He will be dead tired by the world's.

    I am pulling for Voekler. Imagine how much more time the TdF cameras would spend on him if he were wearing the world champion's jersey. They might not even bother to show the rider in yellow. :D

    LOL, I remember watching him in the yellow on French TV. Made Italian commentators seem tame and not jingoistic.

    I think Evans gets the invite as a prestige thing, based on his performance this year. And it is a one day race, so one never knows, with good fortune and 'good day' who might win.

    Apologize for being ignorant but is O'Grady still injured?

    He's back on the bike but not fit enough to race.
