    The list of participating riders in 2011 Paris-Nice and their numbersToday, Paris-Nice 2011 will start in Houdan for a total of 1,307 kilometers towards Nice (don't forget you can see the race route of Paris-Nice 2011 on Google Maps/Google Earth) and if everyone's fine, 176 riders will be at the start for 22 teams of each 8 riders.

    In this article, you'll find the list of participating riders, including the numbers of the participating riders in Paris-Nice 2011.


    The Dutch Rabobank team will come to Paris-Nice 2011 with a former winner of Paris-Nice (2009), Luis Léon Sanchez, as its leader. The Spanish rider, who joined the team during the winter, can among others count on his compatriot Juan Manuel Garate.

    The team decided not to select any sprinters but only good climbers, to allow Sanchez to go get a good classification in the end.

    The FDJ team will be built up around Sandy Casar and Pierrick Fédrigo but Arthur Vichot and Yoann Offredo could also play an important role in this race to the sun.
    Jérémy Roy who fell in Les Boucles du Sud Ardèche (won by his team mate Arthur Vichot) managed to get rid of the pain of his hip and his swollen knee and will thus participate in Paris-Nice 2011 as well.

    The second UCI WorldTour race of the Luxembourg Team Leopard-Trek could well be the first race of that level where they'll get a victory. The multi-national team seems to be ready for it!

    In the American team with Swiss sponsor, Taylor Phinney will not be present. Indeed, he fell during a training and will thus not be able to start in this race.

    The team will therefore not really have a leader in this race, but according to directeur sportif John Lelangue, 4 riders will try to get a good spot in the general classification: Brent Bookwalter, Amaël Moinard, Steve Morabito and Ivan Santaromita
