With 21 teams likely to take part in this year's Tour de France and 19 already qualified through the ProTour, there is little room for the organisers to invite any extras. Tour director Jean-Marie Leblanc, who is in Australia for the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under, said that "We are leaning towards 21 [teams]." There is a strong indication that the French Ag2r and Swiss Phonak teams will earn the final two spots when the teams are announced on January 31.
