Always a source of speculation, we now know which teams will be competing in the seventh edition of the Amgen Tour of California.

Not everyone will be happy with who is taking the start line in Santa Rosa in May. Team Sky and Saxo Bank are notable omissions from the list of ProTeams. And pro continental squad Team Type 1, which once announced its desire to race in the Tour de France by 2012, won't even be riding in one of the major races in its own country.

What do you think of the field? Will you miss watching domestic teams like Jelly Belly (in all six previous editions), Competitive Cyclist (with 2011 National Racing Calendar individual champion Francesco Mancebo) and Jamis-Sutter Home (also in last year's race)? Are you excited about following Alex Merckx's Bontrager-Trek squad (likely the youngest team in the race since the U.S. national team was given a start in 2007)?
