Magnus is in: Liquigas-Bianchi name TdF squad

Daily Peloton - Pro Cycling News

Danilo Di Luca, coming off a very strong Giro d'Italia, will skip the Tour to focus on defending his ProTour leader's jersey in the later ProTour races.

That leaves Liquigas-Bianchi with a squad built toward stage wins:

Dario Andriotti
Dario Cioni
Franco Pellizotti
Kljell Carlstrom
Luciano Pagliarini
Magnus Backstedt
Marcus Lungqvist
Michael Albasini
Patrick Calcagni
Stefano Garzelli

Go, Magnus! We can't let "World's Strongest Man" get *all* the big Norwegians now, can we?

Words we'll never actually hear but that are fun to imagine:

"And Magnus is absolutely flying up the final beyond-category climb of this grueling big-mountain stage...I can't believe what I'm seeing, Paul!"

Hey, unlike some of the sprinters, at least Big Mag *tries* to get through the mountains.
