Team Garmin unveils roster for 2010 Tour, new minisite for fans


Team Team Garmin-Transitions just announced its squad for the July jaunt around and across France, and this versatile veteran lineup will be a contender for stage wins, breakaways and the overall classification. Americans Christian Vande Velde (top 8 in France the past two years), Tyler Farrar (two Giro stage wins this spring) and Dave Zabriskie (2009 Tour of Missouri champ, two-time Tour of California runner-up) are the big names that U.S. cycling fans will be cheering, but supporters of the argyle armada know to keep an eye on Tour veterans David Millar (Great Britain), Julian Dean (New Zealand), Ryder Hesjedal (Canada) and Martijn Maaskant (Netherlands, where the Tour kicks off on July 3). Rounding out the roster are two newcomers to Team Garmin, though they're well known around the cycling world. Twice a top-8 finisher in Paris-Roubaix and top sprinter at the 2006 Tour of Britain, Johan Van Summeren will roll through his home country in the second stage of the Tour. And South Africa's Robbie Hunter will be a crucial part of Tyler's leadout train after picking up two early stage wins for Garmin-Transitions this season at Tour of Murcia.
