Pozzato to ride the Tour of Austria and stage two ends on the Kitzbüheler Horn. It's one of my favourite 'little' races, I hope the race can keep on going.

Linus Gerdemann, Gerald Ciolek, Christian Knees, Niki Terpstra, Johannes Fröhlinger, and Thomas Rohregger are the first six riders confirmed for Milram for the Tour de France. Fabian Wegmann, Markus Fothen, Roger Kluge, Dominik Roels, Björn Schröder, Paul Voss, Roy Sentjens, Peter Wrolich and Luke Roberts are the riders fighting for the final three spots. Wegmann would be in the confirmed riders but they are going to make sure his knee is up to the task after his crash at the Giro at the Tour of Switzerland.

The aim is just stage win and everybody will be committed to helping Ciolek win a stage when the stages are flat. Might then want to include Wrolich and Roberts.

Fabio Silvestre looks like a pretty good talent. He's 19-20 years old, and has been right up in the mix in Portuguese races all year, including two 3rds in as many days, and highest amateur rider, in the Volta ao Alentejo.

There is one problem though - he is riding for Liberty Seguros, who have yet again shed their co-sponsor and decided to give this cycling malarkey one more shot.

Liberty Seguros... because some people never learn.
