Earlier this week, the US Postal team showed its dominance in the team time trial.

Many members of this successful ride will be on the roster for the Tour of Britain, 1st-5th September.

Riders could include Viatcheslav Ekimov, who this year is riding his 14th Tour de France.

Holland’s Max Van Heeswijk has had nine road wins this year and American George Hincapie came back from illness last year to inspire team wins at both the Tour de France and the Tour of Spain. In 2003, Colombian Victor Hugo Pena - dropped for the Tour de France this year - became the first rider ever from his country to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France.

The US Postal Service/Berry Floor team are also nurturing some promising younger riders in the shape of Belgian Stijn Devolder and US Time Trial winner David Zabriskie.
