Blanco
Lars Boom, Laurens ten Dam, Robert Gesink, Tom Leezer, Bauke Mollema, Lars Petter Nordhaug, Mark Renshaw, Tom-Jelte Slagter, Bram Tankink, David Tanner, Maarten Tjallingii, Sep Vanmarcke and Maarten Wynants.
 
Wow Vanmarcke! I think I remember reading somewhere that he didn't like GT's because he had some troubles recovering day by day. Anyway, if he's there he can probably go in some of those harcore breaks with a bunch of world class roulers.

Euskaltel preselection (10 riders): Igor Antón, Mikel Nieve, Juan José Oroz, Juan José Lobato, Gorka Izagirre, Ion Izagirre, Mikel Astarloza, Pablo Urtasun, Romain Sicard and Rubén Pérez.

Lobato, Urtasun, Sicard the most likely to be dropped from the roster.

Thanks.

I'm sure I remember Vacansoleil confirmed 5 or 6 riders but I can't find the article.

Veilleux is confirmed, it's in the headlines in Québec. Says he'll be working for Voeckler and Rolland.

Dunno what standard you have for confirmation, but pretty sure Cunego and Niemiec are going for Lampre. Van den Broeck is another who seems obvious, but I don't have a source.

Is there a source for Niemiec? I'll put Cunego and Van den Broeck in as confirmed.

I'm also going to add the rest of Greipel's train: Roelandts, Sieberg and Hansen as they're 99% certain to start.

Andrey Amador, Sylwester Szmyd, Castroviejo, Enrique Sanz are likely to be in the Tour with Movistar, almost 100%.
Thanks. That would make 7 for Movistar (including Costa, Valverde and Quintana) but I'd have thought Guiterrez, Rojas and Moreno would all be likely selections too (which would be 10)? Has Szmyd shown enough form to be included?
