    Are the French still pinning hopes on Brice Feillu?

    He's certainly wrung every drop out of that stage win.

    Tour stage win in first year as a pro, nothing since. He's lucky to get another shot at the Tour.

    He is. He'll probably get in a breakaway or two and that'll be their TV exposure.
  • I am pleased for Bretagne. They were active in various races screened on TV last year.

    Ok so they were the top level races but they have an opportunity to light it up and I hope they take it.
  • MTN-Qhubeka just cant get a GT invite for love or money :-(

    Love that team for their ethos and charity work donating bikes to some of the poorest areas of the world.

    Hopefully they will get a Vuelta invite.

    Don't know when the Vuelta wildcards are confirmed, but so far Qhubeka's invites are as follows:

    Tirreno-Adriatico
    Milan San Remo
    Gent Wevelgem
    E3 Harelbeke
    Strade Bianche
    Roma Maxima

    @DrHeadgear

    The Vikings are coming!
  • Strange they're invited to Gent & E3, but not De Ronde

    Have the invites be made yet? Who got them?

  • Ahhhh, I thought they'd been revealed but MTN weren't invited, whereas you think I've got the inside scoop.

    Classic misunderstanding, we shall await the Ronde wildcards together
