The Postal Team


The US Postal team's France campaign. From taking Hamilton to the top of Ventoux and the top of the GC in the Dauphine to Armstrong's power moves on Hautacam, US Postal was impressive in 2000. Finishing with all 9 riders in Paris says something about the character of the team, not just about its leader.

US Postal - for taking the place of Telekom in the Tour de France
Kelme - for making the mountain-stages a lot less boring (see above)
