Radio Shack is wearing the yellow numbers as the lead team.

Note: I’m still building the spreadsheets to deal with 195 riders, as three are already withdrawn, one before the start and two from injuries in the rain during the Prologue.

Interesting to see how this develops. I was fortunate to see the prologue in London a few years back

I can tell you it’s a mess if you are trying to go from A to B and happen to need one of the roads that they are using.

Stage three will be interesting – cobblestones and a 30% chance of rain.
