Tour Méditerranéen teams

Several teams have announced their lineups for this week's Tour Méditerranéen, which gets underway in Marseille on February 8. Running until February 12, it's the first stage race hitout for some squads, with most out to gain some early-season form and a couple of wins while the air is still a little chilly.

Quick Step-Innergetic has announced its team, with Nick Nuyens the rider most likely to be aiming for overall honours after his success at the 2005 Tour of Britain; chances are his early season form should be strong ahead of Omloop Het Volk, which he also won last year. New rider Kevin Van Impe lines up for his first stage race with the squad along with Cedric Vasseur, who has moved over to the Belgian team from French outfit Cofidis. Quick Step's riders to start in Marseille are Kevin De Weert, Nick Nuyens, Bram Tankink, Jurgen Van de Walle, Kevin Van Impe, Cedric Vasseur, Geert Verheyen, Remmert Wielinga. Director Sportif is Rik Van Slycke.
