Jose Luis Rubiera - 36 Years old
Levi Leipheimer - 36 Years old
Sergio Paulinho - 29 Years old
Gert Steegmans - 28 Years old
Ben Hermans - 23 Years old
Sebastien Rosseler - 28 Years old

I doubt they'll have much luck in 1010. For one they are going to need a time machine. Two, the roads aren't paved in 1010. Plus, they likely would be killed by the Gauls.

they might have a decent TT team by the looks of it. I can only assume LA is basing this around a 10' Tour TTT.
I'd like to see shack sign riders for reasons outside the tour, not that I care if they do well or not.

They should have a very good team for stage races with Levi and Lance and probably Kloden. Not a one day race team though.

Also with Steegmans as their number one sprinter the Shack are not going to feature in a bunch gallop. The only dominating team for the flat stages next year will be Columbia but hopefully Garmin, Lampre and Vacansoleil (Bozic working with R. Feilleu should be interesting) will be able to break the Cavendish/Greipel stranglehold.

Of course having gone back in time 1000 years I guess it will come down to whether the UCI will allow the use of cutting edge technology like steel horse shoes and spurs:)...

Greipel is probably Cavendish's biggest threat (in years to come). Thus he should really leave imo. when does his contract end?

On the other hand, most of the Shacks riders were in their prime in 1010.
 
Gauls

I scoured the internet for minutes, because I knew the Gauls peaked around Julius Caesar's era, perhaps they could have raced the tdf on chariots. There was a pretty good hbo series on rome that serves as a good primer for undereducated types like me. Check it out.

Sooo....what was going on in merry old France in 1010? It was good times for France.

"Between 1000 and 1400, the kingdoms of the Franks, divided among many leaders, become the kingdom of France, which emerges under the Capetian dynasty as one of the most prosperous, powerful, and prestigious in Christendom." They had one King who hired a Public relations firm, the King was known as Philip the Fair.

In the 900's there were several Norse invasions.

Thor....do you know anything about this...... ??

So back to the Gauls and the TDF, the tdf of 10 ad could feature attacks by the gauls. Not 1010.

Why do I feel like I am the only one who could possibly care?:confused:
