There will be 20 teams in total for the French Grand Tour. Three Professional Continental teams (listed above) and 17 of the 18 ProTour teams: Milram, Quick Step, Silence-Lotto, Saxo Bank, Caisse d'Epargne, Euskaltel-Euskadi, Garmin-Slipstream, Columbia-Highroad, AG2R La Mondiale, Bbox Bouygues Telecom, Cofidis, Française des Jeux, Lampre-NGC, Liquigas, Astana, Rabobank and Katusha. (GB)
Interesting to see ASO continue their stance of not admitting teams who have been caught doping in a previous Tour (Barloworld and Fuji/Scott-A Beef/saunier duval).

I like Skil-Shimano, cool to see them in.

And yet, Liquigas get an invite despite M. Beltran's little transgression last year. WTF?
It's the same as Cofidis getting in last year. If you're looking for even application of the rules from ASO you'll be looking for a while

True - ASO is all over the place. I'm not expecting balance or logic, just pointing out yet another inconsistency...
