Cav is stirring up a bit of trouble saying there's no way he'd ride the TdF with fellow HTC sprinter Greipel after Greipel's comments on Milan- San Remo. He also seems annoyed he's doing the Tour of California instead of the Giro:
another fun quote:"I didn't make the choice [to ride California]. I love Italy, I love the Giro but I'm paid to do this now, so I have to do it."
Cav's interviews are always fun."If I wanted to just win races I wouldn't ride every ProTour race," said Cavendish. "I understand that at the moment I'm racing to be in my best form for the Tour de France and the world championships. If I wanted to get shit small wins, I'd race shit small races."
And they announced the Teams for the Tour of California:
BMC Racing Team (USA)
Cervélo TestTeam (SUI)
Fly V Australia (AUS)
Jelly Belly Presented by Kenda (USA)
Kelly Benefit Strategies (USA)
Quick Step (BEL)
Spidertech Powered by Planet Energy (CAN)
