    This year's GP Plouay, august 26, the provisional start list (http://www.cycling4all.com/index.php?content=r06rplou.php) excludes previous champion Hincapie, as well as Rebellin (3rd last year), DiLuca, Bettini, Valverde, McEwen, Cancellara, Freire, etc. etc. It does have last year's runner up Asov and and 4th place Bennatti, and Frank Schleck.

    It overlaps with the 2nd day of the Vuelta.

    Does this race just not generate the stature of others? Is this a bad time of the year, for those not riding the Vuelta? Is no one building up to the world championships, or rather, does this race not help for that? Do I not know the right "names", those actually racing but off my radar (but should be on it)?

    I also do not have a feed, here in the US, and also I have no questions about that race as of now! Feel free to start a thread on San Sebastian, if you have something to say; I am eagerly awaiting seeing who wins.
