Thanks to the magic of modern technology, you don't have to be a former winner or future participant in the Tour de France to watch the unveiling of the 2009 route in Paris October 22.
Will 2007 winner Alberto Contador show up with teammate and fellow Tour podium dweller Levi Leipheimer? How about Belgian Tom Boonen, himself a wearer of the leader's yellow jersey in 2006? And now that 2008 winner Carlos Sastre has signed for the Cervélo Test Team, will Saxo Bank teammates and brothers Andy and Frank Schleck be licking their lips for glory as well, or will two-times runner-up Cadel Evans finally get the top spot come Paris next July 26?
Tune in to BikeRadar for a live video stream of the news conference at 10 a.m. UK time (5 a.m. EST) next Wednesday, October 22 to watch Evans, Sastre, Alejandro Valverde, the Schlecks, and a host of other Tour contenders dress up in their Sunday best to see what's in store for them next July, beginning in Monaco.
