Lampre-ISD is the oldest WorldTour team in the peloton, and Liquigas-Cannondale the youngest – with not quite three years separating the average age of riders on the two Italian teams. Three teams came in with an average age of more than 29 years: Lampre, RadioShack-Nissan and Saxo Bank. Liquigas was the only one under 27 years.
Sprinters Alessandro Petacchi and Danilo Hondo are both 38 years old, and their ages put Lampre on top of the list. RadioShack has two of the oldest riders, Jens Voigt and Christopher Horner, both 40. Saxo Bank is not represented on the list of ten oldest riders, with their oldest being Matteo Tossato (37) and Nicki Sorensen (36).
