Organizers on Thursday announced the 15, 8-rider teams that will compete in next month’s Tour de Georgia.

A total of 120 professional cyclists will compete in the 600-mile, seven-day event to be held April 21-27.

The final field:

  • Astana
  • CSC
  • Gerolsteiner
  • High Road
  • Saunier Duval-Scott
  • BMC
  • Slipstream-Chipotle
  • Symmetrics
  • Bissell
  • GE-Marco Polo
  • Health Net-Maxxis
  • Jelly Belly
  • Jittery Joe’s
  • Team Type 1
  • Toyota-United

“This is not only the most international field we have had at Georgia, but one of the most elite as well. Usually you only see names like Hincapie, Zabriskie, Leipheimer and Millar at the Grand Tours. Now you will see them at the Tour de Georgia presented by AT&T. We have many teams from across the U.S. and Europe that we just could not accommodate,” said Jim Birrell, managing partner of Medalist Sports and race director for the Tour de Georgia.
