    Anyone know who the Sky riders are?
  • There's a race preview on the British Cycling website.= with all the riders - all 200 of them! That'll be fun, 200 riders hitting the bottom of that hill!!

    It's not as good a race now that the distance has been reduced but still worth watching.

    @rodrigo - Why are Sky limited to only 3 riders?
    From the start list, some teams are fielding up to 8 riders?!

    @gazzaput - confirmed Sky riders are (reigning champ) Russ Downing, Ben Swift and Geraint Thomas. Plus "spare number", which may be another Sky rider??? Someone who's not riding the Giro?

    I think teams with a protour license are only allowed 3 riders in domestic events (or something like that).
