Welcome Back, Tyler!

Today marks the return to the peloton of Tyler Hamilton! He'll be racing in the Grand Prix d'Ouverture-La Marseillaise today, which is seen as the opening of the racing season. The Daily Peloton has a good preview and a list of the Tinkoff Team, which is listed as:

Tinkoff Credit System (RUS) : 111. Daniele Contrini (ITA), 112. Tyler Hamilton (USA), 113. Evgeny Petrov (RUS), 114. Mikhail Ignatiev (RUS), 115. Nikolai Trussov (RUS), 116. Ricardo Serrano (ESP), 117. Vasil Kyryenka (BLR), 118. Alexander Serov (RUS)

For me, it's great to see Tyler's name back on a racing entry list. It's exactly where he belongs.

Welcome back, my friend, and good luck today! Allez, Allez, Allez!

Just a tiny racing tidbit for today. Thanks for stopping by.

I could not be happier than to see one of my favorite riders back in the dance.

Even at 35, I believe he still has the legs to be a major contender on the pro tour. Also, with Paris-Nice and the Vuelta only taking 18 of the 20 pro tour teams, Tinkoff will have the opportunity to compete at the highest level.
