Fred Rodriguez

One of the six-strong US contingent at the Centenary Tour, Fred Rodriguez is a useful sprinter whose finishing speed has landed him two USPRO national championships, stage wins at the Tour of Georgia and Tour of Rhodes this year and second-places to no less a sprint demi-god than Mario Cipollini at two of the 2002 Classics, Gent-Wevelgem and Milan-San Remo.

Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano

Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano finished fifth in last year's Tour and was expected to be major protaganist in the centenary edition, but a combination of a broken collarbone and French bureaucracy has kept him at home, where he is keenly watching the Tour and sharing his insights on Cyclingnews.

Bradley McGee

Bradley McGee can ride a four kilometre individual pursuit faster than some elite squads can ride as a quartet, averaging close to 60 clicks an hour for four minutes, all on his own. Scary, isn't it? However Brad doesn't just want to be master of the chrono; he wants that and more.

Floyd Landis

During last year’s Tour, Cyclingnews welcomed a talented, gutsy, 26 year old former mountain biker named Floyd Landis as a reporter, who endeared himself to our readers for his unique take on a rookie’s life in the pro peloton. We're pleased to announce the return of Floyd with his exclusive journal “Hangin’ In There” in 2003.

A Podium Girl Gone Bad

Mon dieu! She's back, she's bad, and she's... fashionably late as usual. But we've all been missing her, and thank heavens PGGB is here for the Centenary Tour - giving her slightly bizzare (OK, twisted) account of dirty secrets from the Tour de France.

John Eustice

The first-ever USPRO champion, back in 1982, John Eustice is a journalist, TV show host and race promoter with a depth of insight into pro cycling that comes from having ridden at the sharp end himself; his pro career included rides in the Giro d'Italia, Vuelta a Espana and World Championships. When he's not at the Tour de France, the father of two runs his sports event promotion company Sparta, organizers of the Tour of Connecticut and the Univest Grand Prix.
