Riccardo Zoidl, Fabio Silvestre, Eugenio Alafaci, Calvin Watson and Jasper Stuyven. /edit: confirmation through official twitter feed

Arredondo not in the picture... maybe not considered a neo pro

Catoonist pranks Tom Boonen

Cannondale trolling the peloton at P-N :D

"The team ran really well and with the Italians we were always going to have a laugh - one example was on stage 3... there was a break of 5 guys up the road, with team Giant Shimano chasing and 100km to go the finish. They all stopped chasing on the front for some reason and there was a few minutes where we just rolled along and a few of our boys just rolled slightly off the front having a chat - when they looked back they had a bit of a gap and just took off. There was some panic from the Giant Shimano team who got back on the front and rode full gas to shut the move down. After 5 fast minutes they still couldn't see them up the road...it was only when a Europcar rider came up and told them that the two Cannondale boys had actually hidden behind a bush 3kms back down the road and that Giant Shimano were chasing ghosts."
