Who will take Armstrong's slot in Athens?

sfgate.com | U.S. Olympic cycling roster still undecided

On Monday, Lance Armstrong officially notified USA Cycling that he won't compete in the Athens Olympics next month.

USA Cycling says they will make a selection by Thursday.

Likely candidates to replace Armstrong include Levi Leipheimer, Floyd Landis and Fred Rodriguez.

Floyd Landis was actually 6th in line by qualifying criteria, Rodriguez (in my opinion, the most likely to medal) is the USPRO champion, and Leipheimer is riding the Tour.
