Remind us again how EE did in the 2004 Giro and Tour?

Mayo is still trying to figure out how to peak for the Tour. He may try races like LBL again but not necessarily. Of course, if EE doesn't get into the ProTour and assuming that Leblanc doesn't want to take a risk using a wild card on them, then Mayo could go for LBL and other races, take July off, then re-load for the Vuelta. But then, if EE isn't in the ProTour, they may not get invited to LBL either!

No, I was talking only about EE. If YOU want to say that no Spanish teams can handle the ProTour, then go ahead. Personally I think Saunier Duval is a better ProTour candidate than EE. I think we're going to see a rocky road for EE in the months ahead.
