Tour de Georgia teams announced

Bike.com | America's Biggest Stage Race Announces Teams

The Tour de Georgia announced its team lineup on Wednesday. It should be a chance for US teams to mix it up with the Euro squads, and for the Americans on Euro teams to show off a little in front of the home crowds, including Bobby Julich of CSC, and David Clinger, stage winner last year, now racing for Domina Vacanze.

Final rosters won't be available until just before the race, and a few additional teams will be named in the meantime (the Bike.com article says 4 additional teams for a total of 16, but there are 13 teams listed).

Div I Trade Teams:
Landbouwkrediet – Colnago (Belgium)
U.S. Postal Service, presented by Berry Floor (USA)
Team CSC (Denmark)

Div II Trade Teams
Barloworld-Androni Giocattoli (Italy)
Domina Vacanze (Italy)
Navigators Insurance (USA)

Div III Trade Teams
Colavita Olive Oil, presented by Bolla Wines (USA)
Health Net, presented by Maxxis (USA)
Jelly Belly/Aramark (USA)
Jittery Joe's Coffee (USA)
Ofoto/Lombardi Sports (USA)
Sierra Nevada (USA)
Webcor Builders (USA)

Jittery Joe's is the Georgia-based team, that (if I remember correctly) has been the Zaxby's Team, Athens Bandag, and about 10 other things over the last 15 years.
