Gerolsteiner confirmed for Tour de Georgia
Race organizers announced the final team roster (.pdf file) for this month's Tour de Georgia, kicking off April 19th.
The biggest addition is Levi Leipheimer's Gerolsteiner squad.
Recapping, the 6 ProTour teams in the field are Discovery Channel, Gerolsteiner, Phonak, Team CSC, Saunier Duval-Prodir, and Credit Agricole.
Navigators Insurance, Team LPR, USA Cycling's national team, HealthNet-Maxxis, Jittery Joe's (the pride of Athens), Jelly Belly-Pool Gel, Colavita-Sutter Home, TIAA-CREF, Symmetrics, and Kodak EasyShare Gallery/Sierra Nevada (and doesn't THAT roll right off the tongue) will round out the field.
The stage is set for the top US riders to face off wheel to wheel, with Lance Armstrong, Bobby Julich, Floyd Landis, Chris Horner, and Levi Leipheimer all on hand. The only other American I would have loved to see in the field who isn't is Freddie Rodriguez.

The flickr TdG link is bad. I'll have to dig up my pictures from 2003 - I worked at the race, setting up the start lines in each town. Good stuff.
