Ag2R only wild card for 2005 Tour de France

CyclingPost | Ag2R get wild card for Tour de France

France's AG2R squad will join the 20 ProTour squads in this year's Tour de France. The announcement leaves Agritubel and a few other hopefuls on the sidelines for this year's Tour.

It also leaves the Tour 9 riders shorter than in many recent years, when ASO has invited 22 squads.

Next month's Giro d'Italia will be a more democratic affair, with 24 squads competing, better representing Italian cycling.
