US Postal announces its Tour de France roster

I was a bit surprised Victor Hugo Pena didn't make it, but that reflects how much emphasis Brunyeel and Armstrong are placing on the mountain stages. It makes sense in light of the fact that the Tour sponsors decided to limit the amount of time any team could lose in the team time trial to two minutes 30 seconds (a ludicrous decision, in my mind). Hugo Pena was a solid time trialist but not as great a climber.
