In a hurry...

Astana : I like Nibali, but I still cant picture him in the new color, so I go for Maxim Iglinskiy or Bozic for now.
BMC : Teejay
Cannondale : not sure
Sky : Siutsou, Eisel, also Kiryienka, JTL, and Dombrowski, just realize this team will have a lot of riders I care for, and I hope they'll ride elsewhere again someday soon:D
Lampre : not sure
OPQS : not sure
Saxo : Alberto. And I hope Kump do well with them.
FDJ : Pinot
AG2R : Pozzovivo, glad he goes WT (easier to watch the race)
Orica : not sure
Movistar : hardest to chose, I like everyone I can remember, Alejandro, Plaza, Rojas, Benat, Nairo, Amador, Samoilau, Castroviejo, Madrazo everyone...
Vacansoleil : maybe De Gendt
Europcar : can't think
Euskaltel : I like all the old boys who stay, I miss Amets etc., and I think I can like the new boys, too
Lotto : JvdB for all his flaws
Radioshack : Haimar, one of the first riders I could root for
Argos : Degenkolb of course, but some young names are quite exciting (can't say the team is exciting when actually racing, though)
former Rabo : sometimes Luis Leon
Garmin : can't think

I'm posting without really checking the roosters, so there must be some riders I forget or in the wrong team

but of course JRod at Katusha

Omega Pharma – Quick Step Cycling Team - Chavanel

Bolded the ones that I really like, and if I had to pick one rider it would be Ian Stannard - the man's a beast.

Now I'm just waiting for the thread on which riders on each team we dislike/hate. :D

Liking or disliking doesn't have to be logical - doesn't always have to be about hard work or exciting attacks. Maybe they were nice to you when you got an autograph, maybe you hate their haircut, maybe they're from your home town. Could be a million and one reasons unrelated to cycling itself.

Though having said that I'm intrigued why someone would pick Kevin Seeldraeyers ? :D
