This can be used as a live thread and for people on scene to dump updates and live shots and stuff. Here's today's startlist. Some notables are George Hincapie,
Chris Horner DNS (bummer), DZ, Ted King, Tejay Van Garderen, Tom Danielson, and returning champ Matthew Busche. Tyler Farrar is making the trip over for the race, will be interesting to see how the big guy handles the pace up Paris mtn. Team Optum/Kelly Benefits is all in swamping the startline with 12 guys, if they miss the early break... shame on them.
