15 Teams for the Tour de Georgia

The Tour de Georgia team list is now finally official. Adding to the eight initial teams are Symmetrics, Saunier-Duval, GE-Marco Polo, Jelly Belly, Team Type 1, Health Net, and Toyota-United. Symmetrics has also scored an invite to the Tour of Missouri. GE-Marco Polo is a Chinese Pro team with former Discovery rider Fuyu Li.

The organizers have tried to make it easy for the invited teams: time trial bikes are banned this year so International teams won't have to be troubled shipping in the extra TT equipment. It will be TT ala Merckx.

  • Astana
  • CSC
  • Gerolsteiner
  • High Road
  • Saunier Duval-Scott
  • BMC
  • Slipstream-Chipotle
  • Symmetrics
  • Bissell
  • GE-Marco Polo
  • Health Net-Maxxis
  • Jelly Belly
  • Jittery Joe's
  • Team Type 1
  • Toyota-United

Rock Racing appears to be in trouble. On the heels of Cipollini quitting -- but not to race Milan San Remo -- they now have no Tour de Georgia as hoped.
