Euskaltel - Steffen Radochla :D (no alternatives really, Anton and Sanchez are OK but im not really a fan)
FDJ - Sandy Casar (since the Tour 2005)
Garmin - Robert Hunter (cause of his funny behaviour on the bike in the past)
Orica - Tomas Vaitkus (since his millimeter win against Bettini in the Giro)

Katusha (difficult one) - Rodriguez, Menchov, Selig, Paolini

Sky - dont have a particular favourite, I like Eisel, Knees, Stannard, Zandio
Vacansoleil - Juan Antonio Flecha (always liked him, but especially since his very unlucky loss to Nico Mattan in Gent Wevelgem 2005)
