Garmin-Slipstream’s lead rider, Christian Vande Velde, had a hard crash in the Giro d’Italia. Speculation suggests he may not be in top form for winning the Tour de France. The Garmin-Slipstream team has alligned their roster with diverse talent capable of supporting Vande Velde, if he has what it takes, but also to capitalize on other opportunities for points and wins. Riders exceptionally talented in their own discipline: sprinting, climbing, time trials, etc.

1. Christian Vande Velde
2. David Millar
3. Bradley Wiggins
4. David Zabriskie
5. Tyler Farrar
6. Julian Dean
7. Dan Martin
8. Ryder Hesjedal
9. Danny Pate

1. George Hincapie
2. Mark Cavendish

4. Bernhard Eisel
