I disagree. EE is a "thin" team if ever there was one. Obviously not as thin as RAGT but EE are thin. Or would you care to share with us their Paris-Roubaix team, for example? Boonen, Hammond, Backstedt, Hincapie et al could ride backwards over the cobbles and beat anyone on EE.

This season EE couldn't even handle the short cobblestone sections of the Tour and obviously couldn't handle the Tour period. How the hell does a team like that field a competitive team for the Tour, Giro, and Vuelta, in addition to races like Paris-Roubaix, Flanders, etc.?

In the context of the ProTour, the subject of this discussion, EE is one of the thinnest teams in this year's division 1.
