  • And once again the question needs to be asked, why the hell are Lanbouwkredit and Topsport ahead of these two teams?!?!

    ASO don't seem too impressed but on the other hand, they could have been told to sit out these races in return for a berth in July. Only with that hypothesis I can't see both of these teams getting a ride, only one could get in. Skil-Shimano had their go last July.

    Vacansoleil knew they had to impress in Paris-Nice but they were absent. Unless Brice Feillu does something special in Corsica this weekend, their chances look slim.

    They are Belgian teams and these are Belgians races. There's probably a quota of Belgians riders that needs to be fulfilled (there's one for French riders in the Tour).

    Hopefully they are being told not to burn out pre-July.

    It has happened so many times that teams flog themselves for a wild card and then can't perform in the Tour.

    Hope you're right, jimmy- I love it when the 'smaller' teams get an invite to play with the big boys in the Tour.
