From As. com

Hot off the press. A pretty impressive line up.

Andy Schleck, Menchov, Samuel Sánchez y Van den Broeck; más Purito Rodríguez (8º) y Kreuziger (9º) will ride the Vuelta this year. Also Frank Schleck.

Sastre, Igor Antón, Mosquera, David Arroyo, Pereiro y Nibali eill also ride.

But Contador will definitely not ride.

Looks Like Bertie climbs off his bike in July, again. See you next year.
Seems Lance really did teach Contador a thing or two.

    Andy Schleck - Will ride in support of Frank
    Menchov - Will just do his thing towards the top of the GC
    Samuel Sánchez - Stage wins, maybe GC
    Van den Broeck - Practice at a GT
    Purito Rodríguez - Will go for the top 10, then mountain wins, maybe the KOM
    Kreuziger - Working with NIbbles
    Frank Schleck - I'd put him as favourite for the win at this stage. The rest have had a GT in their legs this year
    Sastre - Who knows, one final flourish?
    Igor Antón - Has to impress this year
    Mosquera - Usual September-ness
    David Arroyo - Will try to live up to the Giro like Le Mevel tried to live up to the Tour 2009
    Pereiro - Complete unknown at this stage
    Nibali - Will push Schleck far.
    My Men 2020 - Mark Cavendish, Ben Swift, Fernando Gaviria, Alejandro Valverde, Edvald Boassen Hagen, Zdenek Stybar, Vincenzo Nibali, Geraint Thomas.

    Don't forget the Schlecks both started the Vuelta last year too. They hardly set the race alight - Andy lasted 8 days and Frank lasted 10. Who knows if either of them are any more interested this year?
