Gerolsteiner signs on

The second-to-last missing rider roster has been confirmed to Paris-Nice organiser ASO, with German team Gerolsteiner announcing race favourite Davide Rebellin to participate in the event starting this Sunday. The team told Cyclingnews that the Italian, who placed second last year, will have Austrian Bernhard Kohl and German Stefan Schumacher at his side, as well as Carlo Westphal, Oliver Zaugg, Andrea Moletta, Matthias Russ and Tom Stamsnijder.

The Liquigas team was planning to submit its roster on Friday morning during the race technical meeting, which only leaves Silence-Lotto to officially communicate its line-up to the organiser. The Belgian squad has nevertheless already published its rider list on the team website: Mario Aerts, Christophe Brandt, Dario Cioni, Cadel Evans, Matthew Lloyd, Yaroslav Popovych, Jurgen Vandenbroeck and Johan Vansummeren.
