    The selected riders for the different teams of the Tour de France 2009

    initially published on 23rd of June 2009 at 02.15AM; updated on 23rd of June 2009 at 10.55PM, 24th of June at 09.43PM, 26th June at 02.46AM and at 10.54PM, 28th of June at 10.46PM, 29th of June at 7.59AM, 30th of June at 01.06AM and at 6.42PM and 2 July at 1.53PM
    Only 11 days to go before the first kilometers of the 96th Tour de France will be done in and around Monaco.

    Therefore, it's the time of the year when you can discover the list of participating riders in the Tour again, here for the Tour de France 2009!

    In this article you'll find the (pre)selections of the 21 teams of the Tour de France! As soon as their numbers will be announced they will be published here as well.

    The participating teams

    The list of teams which will participate in the Tour de France 2009 has been published by its organisor on 17 March.

    After Paris-Nice this list wasn't really a surprise anymore since it was exactly the same list of participating teams: 17 of the 18 UCI ProTour teams and 3 Continental Pro teams.

    Of the 18 UCI ProTour teams only one is not welcome, Fuji-Servetto (created on what remained of the Saunier Duval-Scott team (which temporarily adopted the name Scott-American Beef)), due to the doping cases in this team in 2008.

    In addition to the UCI ProTour teams, 3 Continental Pro teams were invited: Agritubel, Skil-Shimano and Cervélo TestTeam.

    The teams and their (pre)selections of participating riders

    Below you'll find for all teams which participate in the Tour de France 2009 the (pre)selection of participating riders. The teams are shown in alphabetical order.

    AG2R La MondialeAG2R La Mondiale

    This French team is the first in the list in alphabetical order and it's also one of the teams which has announced some real news for this year's Tour de France! Indeed, now AG2R and La Mondiale have officially been united in a new insurance company, they also adopted a new logo and visual identity. New logo means a new outfit, especially when the colours of the company change: the new visual identity of the company uses the colours brown and blue as primary colours.
    The company's press release about the new shirt said: the 9 riders of the team who participate in the Tour de France 2009 will wear a new kit, especially created for the launch of the new visual identity of the company. On a white background, it's filled with different AG2R La Mondiale logo's. You can see the new shirt on the right.
    Vincent Lavenu, the team's manager, said about this new shirt: I hope this new symbol of united forces will boost our riders so they will be in top form in the Tour de France. I would like to link these new colours to dynamism and team work so they'll allow us to reach our highest tops. Indeed Vincent, at least the top of the Mont Ventoux if you want to finish the Tour ;-) !

    The final initial selection of this team has not been announced yet, but contained 5 riders who will definitely participate:
    - Jose Luis Arrieta
    - Cyril Dessel
    - Vladimir Efimkin
    - Stéphane Goubert
    - Lloyd Mondory

    The 4 other riders will be chosen from:
    - Hubert Dupont
    - John Gadret
    - Sébastien Hinault
    - Rinaldo Nocentini
    - Christophe Riblon
    - Nicolas Roche
    - Ludovic Turpin


    This second French team also has a new shirt but they made the change at the start of the season already ... if you want to find any Agritubel rider on the helicopter view, look for blue dots ... Agritubel will by the way stop sponsoring the team at the end of the year!

    3 riders have been confirmed for this team:
    - Maxime Bouet
    - David Le Lay
    - Christophe Moreau

    The 6 other riders will be have been chosen among the 10 listed below:
    - Freddy Bichot
    - Sylvain Calzati
    - Brice Feillu
    - Romain Feillu
    - Eduardo Gonzalo
    - Yann Huguet
    - Christophe Laurent
    - Geoffroy Lequatre
    - Anthony Ravard
    - Nicolas Vogondy


    After the financial problems which led to the Astana logo disappearing from the shirts in the Giro, everything seems to be back to normal now for this kazakh team.

    The team made a first preselection of no less than 15 riders, but it recently reduced its first selection to 6 riders who will definitely participate:
    022 Lance Armstrong
    021 Alberto Contador
    023 Andreas Klöden
    024 Levi Leipheimer
    027 Yaroslav Popovych
    029 Haimar Zubeldia

    The 3 other riders will be chosen among will be:
    - Assan Bazayev
    - Janez Brajkovic
    - Chris Horner
    - Maxim Iglinskiy
    025 Dmitriy Muravyev
    - Benjamin Noval
    026 Sergio Paulinho
    028 Gregory Rast
    - Tomas Vaitkus

    Alberto Contador already announced his preference for would have liked to have 2 riders from the initial list: I'm sure we can also count on my two main helpers, Benjamin Noval and Sergio Paulinho, who are essential for us in the flat and low mountain stages so we can arrive fresh and in good form in the most important high mountain stages. Benjamin Noval is finally not part of the selection.

    BBox Bouygues TelecomBBox Bouygues Telecom

    BBox Bouygues Telecom also announced a list of 6 confirmed riders:
    - Yukiya Arashiro
    - William Bonnet
    - Pierrick Fédrigo
    - Pierre Rolland
    - Yuriy Trofimov
    - Thomas Voeckler

    The 3 other riders who have been selected are:
    - Saïd Haddou
    - Laurent Lefèvre
    - Alexandre Pichot

    will be chosen later on. Jean René Bernaudeau, the team's manager, used this fact to motivate his troops by saying: We won't make any standard choices so there might be some surprises. Didier Rous (the directeur sportif who decides on the selection) won't give it away to any rider. All riders have an equal chance of being selected and they all have to prove they're worth their selection. I expect the selected riders to be fit for this event since they will be privileged by being able to participate in the most important race in the world. They must show their team but also the Tour de France that they deserved their place. They must think about their friends who don't get the chance of being selected. I'm looking for freshness, daring and enthusiasm.

    Caisse d'EpargneCaisse d'Epargne

    In this Spanish team there's still was a doubt on whether its leader will be able to participate in this Tour de France: Alejandro Valverde got suspended by the CONI for any races in Italy and the stage between Martigny and Bourg-Saint-Maurice on Tuesday 21st of July will briefly visit Italy. The team seems to have proposed the Tour's organisor to let Alejandro participate in the stages preceding that particular stage but they didn't get an OK for that.
    Alejandro Valverde decided to take the case to the sports court (CAS) in order to confirm that the National antidoping instance of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) is incompetent in this case and to make an end to this affaire. The CAS has announced it will not be able to deliberate before the start of the Tour de France.

    Valverde, who won the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré in a beautiful way last week, is was of course part of the preselection of his team.

    6 riders have been confirmed for this Spanish team:
    - David Arroyo
    - Ivan Gutierrez
    - Luis Pasamontes
    - Oscar Pereiro
    - Luis Léon Sanchez
    - Rigoberto Uran
    - Xavier Zandio

    The other 3 riders will be chosen from:
    - Anthony Charteau
    - Rui Costa
    - Arnaud Coyot
    - José Vicente Garcia Acosta
    - Vasil Kiryenka
    - José Joaquin Rojas
    - Alejandro Valverde

    Cervélo TestTeamCervélo TestTeam

    The Tour de France 2008 winner, Carlos Sastre, is of course part of his new team's (Cervélo TestTeam) selection. Their final selection is as follows:
    002 Iñigo Cuesta
    003 José Ángel Gómez Marchante
    004 Volodymir Gustov
    005 Heinrich Haussler
    006 Thor Hushovd
    007 Andreas Klier
    008 Brett Lancaster
    009 Hayden Roulston
    001 Carlos Sastre

    Xavier Florencio and Gabriel Rasch were in the team's preselection as well but will finally not participate in the Tour de France.

    Like AG2R La Mondiale, Cervélo TestTeam will also wear a new shirt in the Tour. Not for the same reasons though: Cervélo's riders were wearing a black shirt so far and that's not the perfect colour when racing in good weather conditions. Therefore, the colours black and white will be switched in their kit which means that the dominant colour becomes white.

    Cofidis, le crédit par téléphoneCofidis, le crédit en ligne

    In the alphabetical list, Cofidis is was the first team which has already announced its final selection for the 96th Tour de France. The French team selected 6 French riders and 3 foreign riders:

    - Leonardo Duque
    - Bingen Fernandez
    - Christophe Kern
    - Sébastien Minard
    - Amaël Moinard
    - David Moncoutié
    - Rémi Pauriol

One of them, Gert Steegmans, refuses to sign the annex to his contract which obliges him to pay a 5 year salary penalty if he's taken for doping while another rider, Antonio Colom, has actually been suspended because of a positive doping test; Robbie McEwen has an injury which prevents him from participating.

    A.S.O., the organisor of the Tour de France, announced that Tom Boonen is not welcome in the Tour de France due to his recent positive cocain: after having received some people from Quick Step, the Tour de France can only conclude that Tom Boonen's image and behaviour are incompatible with the Tour de France image and with the image an exceptional champion should show. Boonen and his team don't accept this decision and appealed at the Tribunal de Grande Instance.

    The Team VittelThe Team Vittel

    This year again there will be a 21st team participating in the Tour de France! That 21st team is The Team Vittel which has discovered the Tour de France for the first time last year and which again is highly motivated to win the Tour this year. There's been some transfers since last year and the selection for the 96th Tour de France does have a surprise ... a big one!
    - Marc Dumailleau - La Flèche des Ardennes
    - Remy Ancelle - Le Vétéran
    - Thierry Roublard - alias P'tit Filou
    - Bernard Laplume - dit Le Pouète
    - Maria Del Velo - alias La Petite Reine (!!)

    and their coach Vincent Barteau

    To make sure you won't miss the start with The Team Vittel, you could subscribe to the team's newsletter!

    The new sponsor of the team's ranking

    AntargazLast year this ranking was sponsored by Sagem, this year Antargaz takes over the team's ranking. Antargaz sponsors the Tour de France for the 14th time this year and the gas distributor will now get some additional exposure: every day with the trophy for the best ranked team and of course with the 9 yellow numbers this team will be wearing.

    And the final info ... the use of ear plugs is forbidden on two stages

    In the stages
    - of July 14th : Limoges > Issoudun
    - and of July 17th: Vittel > Colmar
    the use of ear plugs will not be allowed. This will be done as a test to see whether this rule will allow to bring back some own initiative and an original end of the race!

  1. Beste Thomas,

    allereerst mijn complimenten voor je geweldige wielersite. Erg knap dat je tijd vindt om hem zo up-to-date te houden.

    Ik heb je een paar dagen geleden een email gestuurd, maar je hebt het ongetwijfeld druk met andere dingen. Ik heb een aantal vragen en hoop dat jij ze kan beantwoorden of een site kan doorlinken waarop ik de antwoorden kan vinden.

    Ik ga met zes vrienden van 21 juli tot en met 24 juli de Tour bezoeken. Nu zullen we er effectief maar 2 dagen van kunnen genieten. We hebben namenlijk een hotel in Geneve geboekt omdat we de zware bergetappe op de 22e willen bezoeken en de dag daarop de tijdrit van Annecy. Dinsdag de 21e gaan we 's ochtends vroeg rijden, dus die dag kunnen we geen etappe meer mee pakken en vrijdag de 24e gaan we weer naar huis.
    Geneve leek ons uitstekend te doen vanwege de redelijke korte afstanden tot de etappes.

    Nou zijn er bij ons wat onduidelijkheden over de bergetappe van woensdag 22 juli naar Le Grand-Bornand. De afstand is geen probleem (iets minder dan een uur rijden), maar hoe zit het met het geval "de berg op gaan". Het lijkt ons leuk om op de Col de la Colombiere te staan (in die omgeving), maar hoe komen we de berg op, hoe laat mogen we erop, wat is de uiterste tijd dat we er moeten zijn, waar moeten we de auto laten staan, mogen we wel met de auto enz. enz.
    We zijn nog nooit bij een bergetappe geweest, dus we weten niet precies hoe het werkt. Duidelijk is dat we wel met 2 auto's die richting op gaan, maar dan?

    De tijdrit lijkt ons iets gemakkelijker, Annecy is geen mega-grote stad, dus we kunnen waarschijnlijk daar onze auto ergens parkeren en dan gaan lopen richting het parcours. Toch?

    Ik hoop dat je me wat duidelijkheid kan verschaffen.

    Heel veel succes met alles!

    Met sportieve wielergroeten,

  2. Hallo Micha,

    Ik had je mailtje inderdaad gezien en aangevinkt als ... één van de vele mailtjes waarop ik nog een antwoord moest sturen! Op dit moment heb ik het verschrikkelijk druk met de laatste voorbereidingen voor de Tour de France en dus komt het er vaak niet van om ... m'n mail te beantwoorden en om m'n blog bij te houden (zoals je wellicht gezien hebt was het een tijdje stil hier ...).

    Leuk dat jullie de Tour gaan bezoeken!! Misschien komen we elkaar ergens langs de route tegen ;-). Ik zal proberen je vragen hieronder te beantwoorden!

    > Geneve lijkt me inderdaad een redelijk goede uitvalsbasis, al zit je daar natuurlijk wel een beetje met het feit dat de wegen daar vaak een omweg maken vanwege de omliggende bergen (ik keek nammelijk even naar de afstand Geneve > Bourg-Saint-Maurice zodat jullie eventueel de rennershotels zouden kunnen bezoeken de 21ste 's avonds maar alhoewel het hemelsbreed niet zo ver lijkt doe je er toch op z'n minst 2 uur over ...)
    > hoe zit het met het geval "de berg op gaan": dat is de klassieke vraag ;-). Het is erg moeilijk hier een precies antwoord op te geven, maar zorg er in ieder geval voor dat je ruim op tijd aan de voet van de berg bent zodat deze nog niet afgesloten is voor het verkeer. Hoe laat dat precies gebeurt is afhankelijk van waar de berg in het parcours ligt (en dus de tijd van doorkomst), hoe deze bereikbaar is (als er verschillende toegangsroutes zijn wordt het parcours zelf vaak eerder afgesloten dan alternatieve routes) en van de beslissingen van de plaatselijke autoriteiten. In het geval van de Colombière gaat het om een berg aan het eind van de etappe: zoals je in mijn artikeltje over de "itinéraires horaires" kunt zien wordt de reclamecaravaan hier om 15u22 verwacht. Ik zou dus zeggen dat de toegang tot een uur of 12 zeker mogelijk zal zijn maar ik durf er m'n hand niet voor in het vuur te steken (don't blame me als het niet zo blijkt te zijn!). Het beste kun je het even navragen bij de plaatselijke Office de Tourisme, bijvoorbeeld die van Le Grand Bornand : telefonisch op +33 4 50 02 78 00 of per e-mail op infos@legrandbornand.com (website : www.legrandbornand.com).
    Voor de auto zoek je een plekje ... langs de kant van de weg (ik durf zo uit mijn hoofd niet te zeggen hoe die berg precies is en of daar veel mogelijkheid toe is; dat is trouwens ook een factor die invloed heeft op de tijd waarop de toegang afgesloten wordt). Als je voor de toegang tot de berg door een gendarme ergens anders heen gestuurd wordt, probeer dan gerust weer terug te komen op je oorspronkelijke route: in het kader van 3 keer links is ook rechts kan ik uit ervaring zeggen dat de volgende gendarme die je tegen komt je wellicht gewoon door laat !!

    > In Annecy zul je inderdaad zonder problemen ergens je auto kunnen parkeren en dan te voet verder gaan. Het vertrek en de aankomst zijn niet op dezelfde plek (ik zal je per mail even de officiële kaartjes van vertrek en aankomst sturen), dus je moet even kijken waar je het beste kunt gaan staan.

    Ik hoop dat je hiermee vooruit kunt! Helaas kan ik weinig concrete antwoorden op je vragen geven, maar vergeet niet ... een bezoekje aan de Tour is vaak een kwestie van: met een beetje improviseren komen we een heel eind!

    Thomas, fan van The Team Vittel - de 21ste ploeg in de Tour de France !

  5. De selectie van Quick Step bestaat op dit moment uit 8 renners, de laatste plaats zal -afhankelijk van de uitspraak van de rechter dinsdag- ingenomen worden door de kersverse Belgische kampioen Tom Boonen of door Allan Davis.

    Aangezien de Franse rechter zichzelf onbevoegd heeft verklaard, zal het dan wel Allan Davis worden...

  6. Bonjour,
    Je suis un fan des grands tours, et particulièrement les tours de France. J'ai une attirance sur l'équipe SAXO Bank avec les Shlecks et Chris Anker Sorensen qui va disputé son premier tour de France. Astana on les meilleurs courreurs, et je pense que Contador peut gagner se tour. Après une équipe comme Servéllo avec notemment Sastre peut le gagner

  7. Thomas bedankt voor de fijne reactie, tot in de info's van de tour op deze site ik probeer iedere dag te volgen groetjes yvan
