2007 Tour de Georgia teams announced
Tyler Hamilton and his Tinkoff Credit System team and David Millar of Prodir-Saunier Duval are two new additions likely to ride in this year's Tour de Georgia. Rider lists aren't confirmed, but it looks like Leipheimer, Hincapie, and Danielson highlight Discovery Channel; Chris Horner, Cadel Evans, and maybe Freddy Rodriguez for Predictor-Lotto; and Dave Zabriskie, Bobby Julich, and Juan José Haedo for CSC.
This is a great chance for East Coast fans to see ProTour teams compete, and a great chance for US racers to make a splash against Euro-quality talent.
Among ProTour teams:
Prodir-Saunier Duval (which races in Europe as Saunier Duval-Prodir)
Three familiar Pro Continental squads are joined by Hamilton's Tinkoff Credit System:

Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light
And, of course, the USA Cycling National Development Team.
