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.

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...
