    Critérium International 2010: the participating teams and riders and their numbersYesterday I presented you the the Critérium International 2010 route in Porto-Vecchio on Google Maps/Google Earth, today it's time for the list of 17 participating teams and the riders who will be at the start, with their numbers.

    On the mountaineous route in Corsica, the riders who will probably be among the best performers are the recent winner of Paris-Nice 2010, Alberto Contador (Astana), the World Champion Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) and the seven time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong (Team Radioshack). Not to forget riders such as the Olympic Champion Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Mauricio Soler (Caisse d'Epargne), Michael Rogers (HTC-Columbia) or the winner of the Tour de France 2009 stage in Arcalis, Brice Feillu (Vacansoleil Pro Cycling Team).

    The teams and riders at the start of the Critérium International 2010

    17 teams will be at the start of this 79th edition of the Critérium International with most probably 130 riders.
