Soler's accident at the TdS

What about Soler? He hit a spectator yesterday and had to be airlifted to the hospital where he was placed into an induced coma so they could operate on his brain...Damn, how scary! Poor guy. But I can't find any more news on his condition, etc. Anyone?

Does anyone know if Offredo will ride the Tour for FDJ? I remember him crashing out of the classics, but I can't remember how long he was supposed to be out for.

He's been riding for a while now, but I think he's not in the Tour team, possibly because he's not interested in riding.

Saxobank - Sungard Tour Team

The Australian Newspaper: The Australian have talked to Saxobanks team leaders Nick Gates.

They believe to know that the following eight riders will ride the tour.

Alberto Contador. :p
Richie Porte
Chris Anker Sørensen
Daniel Navarro
Jesus Hernandez
Baden Cooke
Nicki Sørensen
aaaaand
Juan Jose Haedo :confused:

That leaves one space for probably one of the following riders.

Michael Mørkøv
Brian Vandborg
Gustav Larson
Matteo Tossato
Benjamin Noval.

The only thing I could think Haedo would bring would b to help on the flats, but I'd rather guys like Larson, Vandborg, or Tossato. At least two of aforementioned three riders that I mentioned offer something for the TTT.

Lots of places are reporting that, but Riis said they're still deciding and won't announce the squad until Wednesday. It would make a really different situation for Contador and the guys riding for him if Haedo & Cooke are there looking for sprint help.
