From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Participating riders from various nations, Green: fewer than 10 riders; blue: 10+; orange: 20+; red: 40+.

The list of teams and cyclists in the 2007 Tour de France contains the professional road bicycle racers who competed at the 2007 Tour de France from July 7 to July 29, 2007.[1] Of the 20 UCI ProTour teams, Unibet.Com was not allowed to participate because their gambling sponsor conflicts with the law in France. Of the non-ProTour teams, the organisation invited Agritubel and Barloworld.[2]

Selection information[edit]

In the weeks before the start, many rumours and speculations were heard about which riders would or would not be selected for the race.
